HCN partners with HealthShare for MedicalDirector sidebar tool

Originally appeared in Pulse IT, May, 2013.

Health Communication Network (HCN) has demonstrated the first iteration of its new sidebar functionality for MedicalDirector (MD), partnering with HealthShare to develop a patient education application to assist doctors with explaining to patients the options and outcomes of health problems once a diagnosis has been made.

HCN’s MD Sidebar, first announced in August last year, is an integration platform that allows third-party developers to add tools and widgets to MD’s Widget Store. Users can then download the apps they need to the MD Sidebar, which sits on the right-hand side of the screen and can be minimised or maximised as needed.

HCN has developed an API framework to allow the apps to fully integrate with MD, allowing them to access information from patient files but also allowing the apps to write back to MD.
