Hospital Financial Management Dashboard

Keane Practice Management Dashboards are part of their H.I.S. (Hospital Information Systems) offerings and are designed to allow MSOs (Management Services Organizations), PHOs (Physician Hospital Organizations), IDNs (Integrated Delivery Networks), large multi-specialty group practices and even large physician practices to track profitability and minimize risk within their practices.

Here we see an example of an executive dashboard focusing on financial management summaries. The center panel provides a daily management snapshot with revenue, accounts/receivable, DNFB (Discharged Not Final Billed), and other financial metrics. Flanking either side of the center portlet are a series of dial gauges with various KPIs.

  1. It might be a little deceptive that the needles in the gauges are yellow.

    I would suggest making the gauge needles a solid color (gray/black/etc). Or better yet, make them the color of the range they’re pointing to — that way if the needle is visually “on the line”, you can still (easily) tell which range it’s really pointing to.

  2. Agreed. Good point on the color choice.

    And, I’m sure that the “I hate gauges” crowd would tell us that these are just plain wrong altogether!
