Example: Hospital Outpatients

This dashboard was developed by Jim Uden of Meridian Surgical Partners, and was one of the winners of our 2008 Excel dashboard competition. This dashboard was built for a company that owns and operates ambulatory (outpatient) surgery centres in partnerships with surgeons. The dashboard is a one page snapshot for the review and presentation of partnership level business operations and trends.

The data in this version of the report is fictitious. Download the Background detail for summary of the techniques and thinking involved. Jim makes very effective use of space to convey a lot of detail information in a way which is still easily assimilated. Of particular interest is the ‘bump chart’, showing the change in doctor’s rankings over time.
