Monitor Operational Trends
I need a dashboard that helps me:
- See at a glance the quantity of patients moving through different parts of the hospital over time, as well as average wait times and stay times
- Get a day to day view into trends in patient throughput over the course of a month
- Dynamically drill down into these metrics by specific hospital department
Again, we’ve chosen clear headline metrics to provide context on the dashboard, including sparklines for wait times and length of stay.
The donut chart near the upper left provides at-a-glance information of hospital occupancy and introduces the color-coding scheme that is leveraged throughout the dashboard.
The line chart allows the user to easily spot bottlenecks and slack in patient facilities capacity over the course of the month, and in a final implementation would feature wait times and stay times per day when the user hovers over a data point.
Finally, this bar chart lets the user see a quick breakdown of patients moving through different hospital departments – and allows the user to filter in and out the different departments he or she is interested in.
