Tableau: Can you describe how you are using data at SC Campaign?
Jordan Slice, Research and Evaluation Associate, SC Campaign: Tableau's definitely given us the ability to use our data in real time and use it to make decisions much faster.
Our organization partners with other organizations in the community to implement teen pregnancy prevention programs and educate community members and organizations to prevent teen pregnancy.
We monitor knowledge of different contraceptive methods with teens as they come in the clinics that we partner with. We ask them certain questions about how aware they are different methods. And so we're able to use that data to sort of get a baseline of, you know, ‘How aware are these teens of these long-acting reversible contraceptive methods—which we call in our field LARC.’
Tableau: What were you doing with your data prior to finding Tableau?
Jordan: We had forced Excel to build these dashboards. And we had maxed out our capacity with what Excel could do.
We've been able to import our data into Tableau and build much prettier dashboards where we're able to interact with the data. Where before it was static and we just had to print them and use them as handouts, which wasn't as fun and didn't let us really dig into the data and see the patterns.
