Abstract
"Computerized patient records (CPRs) have been the focus of substantial research and several commercial systems have been developed, but all have met resistance from the clinician users because key medical practitioner needs were inadequately addressed.The research team applied its prior human-factors research in this area to define a design framework for Practitioner-centric CPR Interfaces (PCIs). By providing common look-and-feel and following explicit principles of interaction across tasks andcomputing platforms, PCIs will seem familiar and intuitive, optimize CPR interaction, and require minimal learning, . Phase I also designed a software toolset that uses the design framework and an underlying software reference architecture to support thecost-effective implementation and life-cycle maintenance of PCIs. The toolset is called the Reference Architecture for Practitioner-centric Interface Deployment or RAPID. It will support PCI interface development for a range of hardware devices from PDAsand tablet computers to laptop and desktop machines. It will also support virtually any CPR database or repository, but the Phase II RAPID will focus on compatibility with the Army's developmental CHCS-II system. Phase II will develop a fully functionalRAPID toolset and apply it to generate example PCIs for specific Army medical use-cases."
