Data Visualization Dashboards: Three Ways to Maximize Data

With an unpredictable future due to COVID-19, health systems must leverage data to drive decision making at every organizational level. Data visualization dashboards allow health systems to optimize their data and create a data-driven culture by displaying large, real-time data sets in an easy-to-understand dashboard.
Health systems that rely on dashboard reporting maximize their data in three important ways:

Time to value. Decision makers do not have time to wait for manually-created reports; dashboards quickly convey information so leaders can make swift decisions.
Data democratization. Leveraging a central source of truth, dashboards allow leaders at every level to access the most updated, accurate data.
Digestible data. Analysts can configure dashboards to highlight important figures and trends, so high-level leaders can understand complex data without diving into spreadsheets.
