Outline (2) • Using Templates in EMISWeb: – Good things – Present limitations – Examples of various features • Building and Editing Templates – Use of library items (pros and cons) • How to share, copy and edit templates – Rules/ permissions in sharing Page resolution • 1280 * 1024 is an ideal screen resolution • Some long read codes run over box on lower resolution • Test boxes become too long and thin. • Pages panel on the right can be collapsed to assist, also make sure the past data panel on the R collapsed when not needed Template Speed • Large, multipage templates take longer. – Much quicker than when I did presentation 2y ago • Start taking the BP while waiting for ‘Hypertension, Lifestyle and CVD Risk template to load’. Faster on re-use in day. • KMP templates: – Asthma 7secs > 3seconds (3pp template) – Hypertension/Lifestyle 17 secs (11pp) 5secs – Elderly 15 secs (9pp) 5secs Template Strengths: • Ease of launching them – – – – Prompted by problem Run Template button (remembers last used) F12 protocols to launch common templates Can be accessed from pathology etc via F12 • Split into pages and sections – Clarity – Consistency – Ease for updating • Easy to guide the user: – – – – – Prompt names unlimited length Tooltips can further clarify Help Boxes with clear layout Hyperlinks to web sites, (Unfortunately not mentor pages, but can access documents in www.patient.co.uk Template Strengths: • All system can be navigated while in a template • Summary panel and resources visible • Past data quite easy to access with its free text (compare PCS/LV) (some limits see next slide) • Picking lists allow free text with items • Picking lists can allow multiple entries • Can use browse easily to prevent v big pick list – E.g. occupation, contraception issued… • Problem Title can be added (1 prompt per section. Can’t save template if 2 or more used) • Can add text to consultation…non coded data. – Use for comments re advice given, medico legal .. Template Problems • Past diary does not show diary but past code (Fix testing) • Past data from pick list only shows past examples of last code used. – E.g. ex smoker 2010, 2008 but not fact that was a smoker in 2007 – E.g. poor sleep 2010 and 2008, but no excessive sleep 2009 or good sleep 2007 • Some values unclear e.g. cig smoker and ex-cigarette smoker both say e.g. 3/day Features 1 • Code Browser – Oral Contraceptive given (Contraceptive template) • Choose more than 1 item from Pick list – DXA scan hip and lumbar – Accompanying persons on Child Protection template) • Non Read coded prompts (Pre-defined Text) – Target symptom for antipsychotic (Dementia page on Elderly template – Advice re risks of oral Contraception – BMI at booking (Ante-natal template) Features 2 • Section or Page Visibility – Properties of page allow it to use a pre-existing concept for visibility.
