Strategic Graphic Dashboards for Improved Technology Management Decisions.

This paper discusses the ongoing application of Strategic Digital Dashboard (SGD) technologies to a growing number of important medical applications. The growing number of medical data warehouses and repositories in military and civilian healthcare applications have proved challenging for useful application due to the sheer size and complexity of the knowledge-base (HighTechMaui 2002, Strattou and Dick 2002). Advances in graphical software development tools like LabView and others has allowed development of soft-configurable display systems that simplify human interpretation in several ways. First, such systems allow the developer to create graphical and audible display metaphors, like speedometers, bar displays, color- and brightness encoded symbols, and unique sound libraries, to focus user attention on the most important information (Rosow and Adam, 2003). This paper is closely associated with a separate paper on the Joint Medical Asset Repository (JMAR). In that paper, the full details of the JMAR design and application is explained more fully. This present paper discusses a novel enhancement being developed for the JMAR system.
