The interactive dashboard developed in this study serves to better understand the impact of COVID-19 within nursing homes across the USA. It allows stakeholders to make informed decisions related to the spread of COVID-19 over a 14-month period starting May 2020. Analytics techniques are used to customize the dashboard and enhance its visualization and interactive capabilities. The design science research method was used to create the interactive dashboard as a design artifact to help stakeholders get answers to improve the livelihood conditions for residents in nursing homes. Use of this artifact improves access to information for policy makers and other stakeholders that could not have been possible without an integrated view. The information can inspire new policies for nursing home facilities to improve their situation in light of the pandemic.
