Increased transparency The FRSAN Program provides a suite of resources and training to support
the mental wellbeing of farmers and ranchers. This dynamic and comprehensive approach creates a
complicated process, which the Program team sought to improve by clarifying the processes and
increasing access to the most current data.
Visualizes workflow process The digital dashboard provides a visually intuitive way to
understand the entirety of the programming process and it allows users a simple way to navigate
between the digital portals and tools that are central to efficiently delivering programs and reporting
impacts and outcomes.
Flexibility Designing a process that was user friendly and responsive to the needs of the Program
team informed the development of the dashboard. The entirety of the dashboard is controlled by
the external evaluation team, which allows the team to quickly refine and improve the dashboard to
better meet the needs of the entire team.
Centralized access to information The external evaluation team worked to centralize key
planning documents for event planning and reporting, as well as digital marketing and resource
distribution, which is now accessed via the Farm Stress Dashboard. For example, key program
objectives, registration codes, and training videos are only one click away. A second example
includes the creation of a scholarship tracker which helps to ensure that the program team meets
its goals, and that budget resources are allocated as proposed.
Standardization of scheduling and data collection Centralizing access to the suite of platforms
improved efficiency. For example, centralizing the scheduling process streamlined the planning and
event tracking process for five separate intervention programs allowing the program to efficiently
track progress. Similarly, standardization of the data collection process across platforms greatly
reduces the time spent reporting, organizing, and cleaning the data, freeing up more time to report
impacts and outcomes.
Real time data Managing the goals, objectives, and the budget requires access to timely
information, and improved data collection and planning processes helped to increase the entire
team's access to real time data. This was key because the team has to closely monitor events to
ensure that they are reaching the target audiences, and to ensure that it fully leverages the
scholarships that cover the participants registration costs.
