OBJECTIVE: To describe and critically analyze the steps taken and the technical references used to build the São Paulo City Health Department Monitoring Panel, highlighting its potentials and limits for the decision-making process.

The data was submitted to thematic analysis aimed at understanding the technical choices and paths taken to build the Panel. RESULTS: The Panel provides numerical and graphical reports applying four statistical analysis models, thus facilitating access to information and data analysis by different management levels. CONCLUSIONS: The Panel provides analysis options for different management levels, thus strengthening decentralized decisions. It is a streamlined and appropriate monitoring strategy as well as being able to be used in different management contexts and territory sizes.
