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.
