Walkthrough – How To Navigate The Dashboards

The controls of each dashboard are essentially the same. If the dashboard has tabs along the top, start off by determining which one is the best fit for what you are looking for. For the sake of this example, we’ll use the “Emergency Department Discharges” dashboard default tab “Discharges related to substance use” view, with no filters currently in use, as shown here.

Example of a standard report and associated controls.

To begin filtering the data set, click on a bar of a chart, a row of a table, or an item in a drop-down list as appropriate. You will notice the other values adjust accordingly. For example, say our ultimate goal is to get a count of all discharges related to substance use including Alcohol, in Honolulu, in the 18-44 age range, in 2021. To start, we fist click on “Honolulu” county, which gives us the following result.

Once “Honolulu” county is selected, all the other charts and graphs in the view are automatically adjusted to be limited to that filter. For example, the number of Alcohol related discharges has changed from 33,854 to 20,959 as that number now only includes Honolulu county results. To accomplish additional filtering, hold down the control key (CTRL) and click on any additional bars or rows you wish to filter on. To continue with our example, we do this and click on “18-44” in the Age Group and “2021” in the “Calendar Year” chart, which gives us the following result.

As a result, the Alcohol count has dropped to 1,757 and all the other tables and charts have adjusted accordingly as well. At this point, we’ve met our original goal, but let’s say we decide we want to further filter down to only include those who also have Adult Personality and Behavioral Disorder? To include this, click on the “Mental Health Diagnosis” dropdown and select that menu item. This results in the following dashboard view.

The count for Alcohol results has dropped to 17. Notice that it is no longer the top item in the bar chart as Nicotine has a larger count for this filter set. Should you decide you want to include other groups from a charts in which you have already selected an item, you can just control-click another one in that chart. For example, let’s say we decided to include the 45-64 age group.

Now the numbers and charts have all adjusted to reflect the additional age group. This also works for deselecting an activated filter as well. Say we want to go back to just the 18-44 age group, we control-click on the 45-64 age group which deselects it and reverts us back to our earlier result. To reset all the filters at the same time, click the “Reset Filter” button located under the green box on the left.

One final thing to be aware of, notice that in our final screenshot, some of the rows and bars say “<11*,” this happens when there are fewer than 11 results for that category under the current filtering conditions. These numbers are obfuscated per State Department of Health policy.
