Using a design science approach, we developed a dashboard prototype (artifact) to better understand the factors related to the impact of COVID-19 within nursing homes (NHs). The artifact will allow stakeholders to make informed decisions related to potential spread of the coronavirus in NHs. Data integrated from disparate sources was used for building the design artifact. We used analytics techniques to customize the dashboard and enhance its visualization and interactive capabilities to help stakeholders get answers related to nursing home factors that impact the spread of COVID-19 in NHs. The viability of the dashboard will depend on the attributes possessed, such as the type of information conveyed, the level of detail, and reusability potential. The dashboard can inspire new policies to be developed for nursing home facilities across the country which will ultimately improve their situations in light of the pandemic.
