Background and Objective:
Brazil has a public unified healthcare system named sistema Unico de Saúde (SUS). Healthcare management, financing and delivery are responsibilities of the three levels of government, the union, states, and municipalities. For monitoring and control, managers must fill in data in several planning tools, such as the current manager planning system called Digisus Gestor Modulo Planejamento (DGMP), in order to guarantee transparency about the status of the health planning and management mandatory documents. Those documents might go under further evaluation by the health council, which is the collegiate that acts in the formulation of strategies and as a society control of health policies implementation in the corresponding government level. The objective of our project is to present the newly developed dashboard as a tool offering public transparency and enabling comparative analyses of sus planning instruments status.

A team of ministry of health professionals developed the dashboard between July 2021 and June 2022, in weekly meetings under constant cooperation and collective effort, using microsoft power BI as supporting technology.

Maps, graphs and tables illustrate the situation of sus planning and management instruments in the dashboard, providing a public, friendly interface that is easily available. This technological innovation makes it possible to display the status of sus planning instruments in government levels and health regions. Furthermore, the application of a spatial clipping frame provides the basis to elaborate technical reports and qualitative analyses of those instruments.

The dashboard innovates by providing transparency of brazilian unified health system planning data, thus supporting government decision making and social control policies.
