Our design and development team has taken great care to make a user experience in our browser-based EHR that is clear and intuitive. We understand that end-user adoption is essential to the success of any software project. This fact becomes even more important when those users are clinical professionals who must have a clear view of a patient’s health information in order to provide quality care. Thus, Roberts-Hoffman has built a set of plugins to the open source Tolven Platform that improve and simplify the screens and create intelligent workflows to make the system a delight to use. See for yourself! The screens below illustrate the the Roberts-Hoffman difference.
Below you can see the prototype plugin, which allows browser-based entry of vital observations such as height, weight, BP, pulse, etc. Each of these observations is entered one-at-a-time.
In the Roberts-Hoffman vitals assessment plugin, you get all of the vital observations on one screen as a complete assessment. In addition, we built in data integrity measures and visual queues for normal ranges.
In addition to collecting all the pertinent data in one place, we created a custom display portlet that shows the end-user all of the vital observations in one place, along with the date and time of the most recent observation. Notice that out-of-range values are in red.
