Is Microsoft Common User Interface ended?
MSCUI provides User Interface Design Guidance and Toolkit controls that address a wide range of patient safety issues faced by healthcare organizations worldwide. However, in the last months we haven’t received any new a part from their Clinical Documentation Solution.
Does it mean it’s over? Despite the ambition of providing a definitive CUI, Microsoft has done an impressive work providing guidelines that work at least for its primary target market: the NHS.
Now it is in our hands thinking if the effort is worthless or, in the contrary, it is the moment of continuing validating whether that common user interface could be a real standard somewhere else or not.
Ended or not, we cannot ignore the big amount of knowledge and information that can be learned and used from MSCUI. This will be always a reference to take into consideration.
