The WHO Maternity Dashboard does meet the definition of a dashboard as it includes Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) for clinicians who spearheaded the dashboard, it can be easily gauged with the use of the ambulatory color-coded system and it is/was maintained and updated on a monthly/at least monthly basis. In my experience, most dashboards in their initial stage does not have the desired outcomes for all stake-holders, but the beauty of dashboards is that they can be improved upon in time. This also comes with the possibility of overcomplicating or making them more complex with too much data to meet the needs of all stakeholders and thus takes time to hone indicators down to a happy medium.
