Project Description

OneNote EMR is an add-in for Microsoft Office OneNote 2007 that enables physicians to keep patients' Electronic Medical Records using TabletPC.

The state-of-the-art e-health technologies allow, in a number of cases, to significantly improve the quality of medical services. However, the widespread use of software in hospitals is often limited for several reasons. One of them is the complexity of medical software for the end user experience, especially in the keeping of Electronic Medical Records (EMR).

OneNote EMR is the Microsoft Office OneNote 2007 add-in for keeping patients' EMR using a Tablet PC or a computer equipped with a handwriting input device. This product allows to combine traditional approaches for keeping patient's medical data using paper forms with advanced software technologies that enable handwriting input (or inking).

OneNote EMR allows a physician to create Electronic Medical Records, perform their search, make records for admission, placement of orders and the results of examinations. When adding a new record medical person can select the electronic image of paper medical forms from the template library and then fill them by means of handwriting. User can simply scan a paper form in .JPG or .PNG format and place it into the templates library to be available for record creation. The functionality of Microsoft Office OneNote 2007 allows to attach to EMR various multimedia information such as graphics, audio and video recording.
The product can be used both by a patient care institutions (with mutliuser access) and a practitioners.

Special thanks to the authors of the OneNote Object Model project that provides a great API for Microsoft Office OneNote 2007.
