Hi all - great news, an updated version of the Patient Journey Demonstrator, the project I am currently working on, has been released. Check it out at http://www.mscui.net/PatientJourneyDemonstrator.

In this release we fixed lots of bugs, as well as added some new features around capturing input from the user. Below is a list of some of the new features and a video walkthrough of the whole demonstrator...

Presence Indicators

Presence and availability is a really important theme in health care. Everywhere where we display an employee’s name, we show their presence...

Updated Navigation Bar

The updated navigation bar allows you to move backwards and forwards through different demonstrators too.

Silverlight Patient Banner

We have incorporated the new Silverlight patient banner, from the Microsoft Health CUI controls library.

Menu Pearl

We have a new menu pearl that will allow you access to some of the new features within the demonstrator - in this release, the ability to add a consultation!

Creating a Consultation

In the primary care demonstrator, you can now create a new consultation, prescribe medications and record observations. You can then save this to the patient record and see the activity list and meds list update!

SNOMED Terminology Lookup

We have taken a subset of the SNOMED database of clinical terms, and made these searchable when creating a consultation. Try typing ‘Chest Pain’.

Search and Prescribe Medications

Search for medications and prescribe to see the meds list view update.

Styled Meds List View

We have styled the Microsoft Health CUI Meds List View control to fit in visually with the demonstrator.

Drug details on Patient Chart’s table view

We have added columns to the table view in Patient Charts for showing the drugs the patient is taking.

Visual Makeover of the ECG charts

We are looking at different ways of representing the deep zoom, digital ECG data (in the Secondary Care Demonstrator). One of those explorations was to make the full result set look more like the live ECG. This is an easter egg, and requires you to press F8 once, as soon as the Secondary Care Demonstrator has loaded!

Annotating the Angiogram

We have added a bunch of features that allow you to annotate the ECG video in the secondary care demonstrator...

Including a tool bar for measuring, inking, drawing marquees, zooming in and going full screen...

A collapsible list of the annotation history...

The ability to attach a text note to each annotation...

A frame by frame selector allowing you to see what annotations are already on the video and provide navigation to those frames...

Walkthrough Video
