About HealthBoard

HealthBoard is an open source presentation layer designed for the Patient Centered Medical Home.

Patient Portal

Provider Portal

Funded through the Telemedicine and Advanced Technology Research Center (TATRC) and driven by consultations with the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center (WRNMMC), HealthBoard is a visual dashboard prototype that is designed to improve better patient care through better design. Consisting of two portals—the patient portal and the provider portal—HealthBoard is designed to serve both communities through better information.

The prototype and designs are developed to allow active duty military personnel the ability to interact with their own personal health information and electronic medical records, and healthcare providers with better access to patients and their decisions. By integrating information design principles HealthBoard provides users with enhanced and streamlined access to information, making it less intimidating and easier to understand the impacts of decisions on health outcomes.

Best of all, HealthBoard is free! HealthBoard is an Open Source product released under an LGPL license designed to enhance and/or complement other existing EMR systems. Scheduled for release through the Open Source Electronic Health Record Agent (OSEHRA) project in December 2012, HealthBoard can be used by EMR developers either completely or in a modular fashion as an enhanced presentation layer. Guidance documents are included, thereby assisting in the adoption of good design principles by developers easier.

About the PIIM Canonic GUI Model (PCGM)

The PIIM Canonic GUI Model (PCGM) is being developed to make things just a little easier for the developer community. HL7 is complex and hierarchical, thereby making it difficult and time consuming to exchange health care data. The PCGM provides a roadmap for developing a plugin that auto-generates code making it easier to connect objects to HL7 data. This allows developers to more efficiently develop and connect EHR-related services with a Graphic User Interface (or GUI) without having to learn HL7.
