Dashboard Design for Communicating Healthcare Data

Workshop II—Dashboard Design for Communicating Healthcare Data
Properly designed, data dashboards have enormous potential to help healthcare professionals visually identify and monitor at a glance the most important information needed to think, reason and make informed healthcare decisions. Yet this potential has not been realized. This is because the skills that are required simply are not taught, nor are they intuitive.
Currently, dashboards used to communicate healthcare data are more typically poorly designed, at best failing to and at worst even incorrectly communicating the critical information used to measure performance, communicate information to patients and identify the right opportunities for change and improvement to our healthcare systems. And in healthcare, perhaps more than any other industry, we just can’t afford poor data communication.
This full-day course delivers that hard-to-find hands-on training in the best and most effective design practices. It’s also interactive, with a combination of lecture and small group case study activities, and designed to give you the tools you need to accurately and effectively present your healthcare data via a dashboard.
Here’s what you will learn:
· A brief history and definition of data dashboards.
· The current state of dashboards—problems revealed and opportunities identified.
· The 13 most common dashboard design mistakes.
· How to use human visual perceptions to design effective dashboards.
· The guiding principles of dashboard design.
· The features of a well-designed dashboard.
· How to determine the best medium to display your healthcare data.
· How to organize your dashboard to impart information at a glance
· How to make your dashboard aesthetically pleasing.
· How to test your design for usability.
