Book Description :

Dashboards have become a popular means to present critical information for rapid monitoring, but few do this effectively. When designed well, dashboards engage the power of visual perception to communicate a dense collection of information efficiently, with exceptional clarity. This can only be achieved, however, by applying visual design skills that address the unique challenges of dashboards. These skills are not intuitive; they must be learned. The author teaches a comprehensive set of effective design practices through examples that reveal what works, what doesn't, and why.

Book Description :

Dashboards have become popular in recent years as uniquely powerful tools for communicating important information at a glance. Although dashboards are potentially powerful, this potential is rarely realized. The greatest display technology in the world won't solve this if you fail to use effective visual design. And if a dashboard fails to tell you precisely what you need to know in an instant, you'll never use it, even if it's filled with cute gauges, meters, and traffic lights. Don't let your investment in dashboard technology go to waste. This book will teach you the visual design skills you need to create dashboards that communicate clearly, rapidly, and compellingly. "Information Dashboard Design will explain how to: Avoid the thirteen mistakes common to dashboard design Provide viewers with the information they need quickly and clearly Apply what we now know about visual perception to the visual presentation of information Minimize distractions, cliches, and unnecessary embellishments that create confusion Organize business information to support meaning and usability Create an aesthetically pleasing viewing experience Maintain consistency of design to provide accurate interpretation Optimize the power of dashboard technology by pairing it with visual effectiveness Stephen Few has over 20 years of experience as an IT innovator, consultant, and educator. As Principal of the consultancy Perceptual Edge, Stephen focuses on data visualization for analyzing and communicating quantitative business information.

Book Description :

A dashboard is a collection of data visualization tools that provide the means to quickly get an overview of how an organization or a section of an organization is performing. Industries such as sales and manufacturing use dashboards extensively, but dashboards are quickly being adapted across all types of profit and non-profit organizations. THE DESIGN OF INFORMATION DASHBOARDS USING SAS is a nuts and bolts guide to building information dashboards using SAS software. The primary audience for this book is SAS programmers charged with developing dashboards for their organization. This audience would include data managers, report writers, and business analysts. A secondary audience includes business mangers and non-programmers who are just hoping to learn a little more about the potential of the technology. The first four chapters provide background on the science of dashboards and related concepts. The remaining chapters cover coding and design of dashboard elements using SAS software. By providing clear, well-structured examples, the volume shows the reader how to quickly and easily construct basic dashboards that are suitable to their unique needs and environment. SAS users familiar with the basics of SAS and the fundamentals of SAS/GRAPH software will be able to make small changes to the sample code contained in the book to design simple dashboards. Advanced users with more extensive knowledge of SAS/GRAPH and the annotate facility will be able to more fully customize the sample code to fit a variety of needs. CHAPTER DESCRIPTIONS Chapter I. AN INTRODUCTION TO DASHBOARDS The first chapter defines precisely what dashboards are and their common characteristics. Following a brief history of information dashboards, the chapter discusses their value, as well as some negatives, and describes current use and trends. Finally, the value that SAS contributes to producing the medium is introduced. Chapter II. SEVEN STEPS TO CREATING A DASHBOARD The development of a dashboard often requires a substantial investment of time and money, so designers should do it thoughtfully. The goal of this chapter is to guide the reader through the dashboard development process. The chapter provides an overview of the major steps involved, including preparation, design, construction, and maintenance of dashboards. Chapter III. ESSENTIAL ELEMENTS OF A DASHBOARD When you create your dashboard, several essential elements should be present on the interface to make the dashboard maximally effective. The third chapter covers these essential components of a dashboard. Chapter IV. BEST PRACTICES IN DASHBOARD VISUAL DESIGN This chapter covers the foundations of good dashboard design and addresses the contributions of Edward Tufte and Stephen Few to the area. The chapter delves into the science of visual perception and how to apply them to good dashboard design. Chapter V. CREATING DASHBOARD KEY PERFORMANCE INDICATORS USING SAS The fifth chapter presents a library of effective dashboard display media and discusses how to produce them using SAS coding. Programmers will be able to pick and choose those chart types that are most appropriate for their particular dashboard. Strengths and weaknesses of the various chart types are discussed. This chapter will also introduces new SAS procedures such as PROC GKPI. Chapter VI. ASSEMBLING AND DISTRIBUTING SAS DASHBOARDS This chapter describes how to bring all the visual components together to produce a single dashboard display. PROC GREPLAY, ODSLAYOUT, and ODS TAGSETS are described as the methods of choice. Methods of distributing this output are described. Chapter VII. DESIGING DASHBOARDS USING SAS BI DASHBOARDS The final chapter briefly describes the design of dashboards using SAS BI Dashboards business intelligence software.

Book Description :

Designing Healthcare That Works: A Sociotechnical Approach takes up the pragmatic, messy problems of designing and implementing sociotechnical solutions which integrate organizational and technical systems for the benefit of human health. The book helps practitioners apply principles of sociotechnical design in healthcare and consider the adoption of new theories of change. As practitioners need new processes and tools to create a more systematic alignment between technical mechanisms and social structures in healthcare, the book helps readers recognize the requirements of this alignment. The systematic understanding developed within the book’s case studies includes new ways of designing and adopting sociotechnical systems in healthcare. For example, helping practitioners examine the role of exogenous factors, like CMS Systems in the U.S. Or, more globally, helping practitioners consider systems external to the boundaries drawn around a particular healthcare IT system is one key to understand the design challenge. Written by scholars in the realm of sociotechnical systems research, the book is a valuable source for medical informatics professionals, software designers and any healthcare providers who are interested in making changes in the design of the systems. Encompasses case studies focusing on specific projects and covering an entire lifecycle of sociotechnical design in healthcare Provides an in-depth view from established scholars in the realm of sociotechnical systems research and related domains Brings a systematic understanding that includes ways of designing and adopting sociotechnical systems in healthcare
