It was good to “meet” some of you last evening!

I agree with the comments in the discussion thus far. At a glance, the “dashboard” presented in the WHO article is overwhelming and leads me to no easy conclusions. It may contain relevant data (a report) but it lacks the graphical/visual components that are essential to a dashboard. A title/summary of some sort would be helpful for starters. I did appreciate the fact that the Lessons Learnt portion of the article pointed out that the Mpilo Central Hospital’s printer printed in grey scale; further limiting the effectiveness of the traffic light color coding system.
