As part of Dashboard Week, in this post, we will take a look at Health-care Dashboard prepared and shared by Alberto.
Health-care Dashboard Snapshot:
How is this Dashboard Made? – An Overview:
Alberto put together an excellent dashboard to visualize hospital performance and understand what is going on.
Here is what I like about the dashboard:
- Clear title and ability to select which half-year you want to analyze.
- Subtle colors for non-data elements of the dashboard
- Alerts to highlight focus areas
- Clear and simple to read dashboard. Once you understand how to read the first line, you know how to read the rest.
- Sparklines, Conditional Formatting.
What can be improved in this dashboard?
- Formulas: Alberto used IF formulas to fetch the values for each half-year (semestre). Instead using INDEX or OFFSET would make his job simpler.
- Hardcoded targets: The target values for each metric are hard-coded. Instead, they should be put in a separate table, just like actual data.
- Solid Fill bars: Instead of using gradient fill data bars, it is better to use solid fill bars thru in-cell charts.
How is the dashboard constructed? – An overview Video:
I have made a short video to explain this dashboard to you. Watch it to understand how this dashboard is made and how you can use similar techniques.
