This effort will allow software designers to create a customized user interface for end users to be able to access more from one location, in other words, a real opportunity for developers to partake in and create integration for the end user for a common appearance and ease of use to quickly obtain patient safety and critical functions...in layman's terms, making it easier for clinical staff to use and drill down to get the information they need quickly without additional learning curves. Someday, we could see a potential standardized approach here, but just by population alone, this would be a huge undertaking as well. It will be interesting to follow the progress and see the results as time goes on. BD
The Microsoft Health Common User Interface (CUI) provides Design Guidance and controls which allow a new generation of safer, more usable and compelling health applications to be quickly and easily created. This site is aimed at user interface designers, application developers and patient safety experts who want to find out more about the benefits of a standardized approach to user interface design.
This is the first release of the Microsoft Health Common User Interface. The scope and requirements of this release are based on pre-release materials produced from extensive consultation with patient safety experts, clinicians, user interface designers and application developers as part of the English National Health Service Common User Interface (NHS CUI) Programme.
