The Microsoft Health CUI Team Blog is used to announce updates to the site, post information on future events,
and share additional information that may be of interest.
The CodePlex discussion forum can be used to discuss, and
ask questions about, the Microsoft Health CUI Design Guidance and Toolkit controls.
We have released the Graphing control, our richest CUI sample control to date. It enables developers to display clinical data series in a clear, consistent graphical medium in their applications.
The control is available in Microsoft Silverlight and Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF).
The Graphing control presents a set of features to promote quick understanding and detailed interrogation of data, such as:
...a focus line to reveal values across all graphed data:
...the ability to remove, replace and reorder the stacked graphs:
...and the ability to show or hide data values, graph lines and grid lines:
Smooth scrolling and scale-to-fit features complete this functionally rich environment.
The Graphing Control can also be seen during design time using Microsoft Expression Blend where the appearance can be customized by providing a new control template.
Although our downloadable Graphing control has been designed to allow the binding of any data source, we’ve configured the example on this Website to show how it can provide developers with a straightforward way to conform to the graphing elements of the Design Guidance for Displaying Graphs and Tables for patient vital signs temperature, pulse rate, respiratory rate, blood pressure and oxygen saturation) data.
We would like to tell you about the additions and enhancements we’ve made to Microsoft Health CUI in the February 2009 release.
We’ve also made the following updates to existing items:
In December, we released a new version of our Patient Journey Demonstrator that includes applications of our latest design guidance, the incorporation of SNOMED CLINICAL TERMS® (provided by Health Language Inc.), and other innovative features.
At the end of 2008, we had the pleasure of meeting with four Independent Software Vendors – Bluewire Technologies, In4tek (now known as Civica), Map of Medicine and The Learning Clinic – who talked about the challenges that they face with technology within the medical arena, and how the Microsoft Health CUI is helping them to overcome these. Please visit our Testimonials page to see their interviews.
