I think the WHO dashboard is a dashboard, albeit a crowded one. Dashboards *don’t* need to be live-updating, necessarily, and this one appears to have been a static table updated monthly. What this does do is display complex data in a fairly clear way, with color-coding to indicate where pinch points are. I can see where this would help the hospital team see at a glance where the areas of need would be–quickly estimating based on how many months there are left in the year and last year’s birth numbers how many more babies would be born this year. This dashboard also provides the data in one place so that the healthcare workers can interpret it: why are there more SCBU admits one month, for example, etc.
