Chris Hayes, solution architect at Perficient, recently posted a blog on the UI redesign of the US Electronic Medical Records System (EMS). In November 2012, the White House announced a challenge to redesign the US EMS. Here’s a snipit from Chris’s blog post:
Last November a design challenged was proposed by the White House – Redesign the Electronic Medical Records system. The challenge drew over 230 submissions and this week, the White House has picked a winner.
Rarely do companies get the chance to propose ideas that could impact millions of people. It’s not just that though. This goes beyond designing just a system to designing something that has the potential to improve healthcare in the US and improve how doctors and patients interact.
