Live Facilitation of Strategy Meetings

By Tony Camarata

Has this ever happened to you? You walk into a strategy meeting with your strategic plan, ready to plan for the future, but walk out with long list of to-dos instead? The meeting that was supposed to be used to chart your future growth strategy is spent asking and atempting to answer questions about past performance. Your organization’s key stakeholders need to know more insight into certain figures and also have requested intelligence that wasn’t prepared in advance, but they are not the right audience to jump into Excel pivot tables. Launch Pathway’s Storyboards solves this problem with live meeting facilitations. Launch Pathway is a data visualization tool that lives on top of state data. The Storyboards feature enables you to take snapshots of market share, service lines, payor mix, and maps of your facility and add them to presentation-ready decks within minutes, all within the application.

Launch Pathway Storyboards: Drawing Inspiration from Pinterest

Part 1 in a 3-Part Series on our newest platform, Launch Pathway. 

By Scott Burns

When our product team originally conceived Launch Pathway, the benefits stemming from the feature now  known as Storyboards was at the forefront. As we have learned in our 6 years at Stratasan, often times product design is improved when starting with the end in mind. Our basic goals for Storyboards were to be able to save snapshots of data and visualizations, edit your story or presentation, and have each storyboard presentation automatically refresh with each new data release.

More specifically, the main model of Storyboards is an ordered collections of snapshots, each of which can exist in multiple storyboards at a time (referred to as a many-to-many relationship). As we worked through a variety of design and functionality ideas, we came to the point where we knew if the end user could not save a snapshot quickly and efficiently all other functions would be moot. A breakthrough occurred when our Product Captain, Morgan Atkins, suggested Pinterest as a place for inspiration for this functionality.
