  • This is a sampling of the industry players who use the Diver Solution to solve the problem of delivering information internally and externally.
  • For global, standardized reporting across large organizations, the typical, heavy Data Warehouse architecture may be required.
  • .
  • As examples, I’ll use a prototype set of dashboards that we developed for our healthcare solution – using Diveport 6.2. Granted we may not have gotten to exactly where we want to go with the upcoming technology – but we did get a fair amount of the way there. One of the most necessary and important things to do is to summarize information in such a way that you can group a lot of related information together in the same dashboard screen. Example: grouping related information for Inpatient, Ancillary (Outpatient/ED) and Surgery. Use simple indicators to draw attention to exceptions: In this case, we’re showing that two exceptions using the red square: the one at the bottom denotes outpatient volumes being slightly below the year-to-date target. Finally, use line and bar charts to add meaning to the data: in this case the month to month trends in inpatient discharges, compared with budget and last year. This is an example of a key leading indicator.
  • And that’s where dashboards come in: they are a tool to help you achieve this goal of focused analysis.
  • This slide includes CGI financial performance data released for Q2 of FY2007, which ended on March 31, 2007.
