I agree with the above statements. While creating a dashboard does seem to be the intended goal of the WHO Maternity Dashboard study (i.e., they meet some of the criteria like having a visual display and, presumably, the most important information all displayed on one screen), this dashboard does not provide an at-a-glance view or graphical visualization of the data. Moreover, it is not clear whether all the data presented are relevant to their goal, and they do not present any predefined conclusions. As Mariana mentioned earlier, the WHO’s version of the dashboard is much more like a well-organized spreadsheet.
