The NYeC has put together a patient portal design challenge to provide the best patient portal for New Yorkers. It’s a pretty cool challenge and they have 14 prototypes that are participating in the current voting. I’ve copied an email that contains more info on the challenge and the voting, but I thought it was a pretty cool thing to be able to see a number of different companies approaches to a patient portal. I wonder if some EMR companies will hire the portal designers directly.
As you may know, the New York eHealth Collaborative (NYeC) is building the Patient Portal for New Yorkers—a statewide website where New Yorkers will be able to securely access their healthcare records.
To create the most user-friendly portal design possible, NYeC hosted a design challenge earlier this year, calling on designers and developers to submit prototypes of what the portal should look like. Now they’re are asking the public to vote on the designs!
And now they want to hear from you—help shape the future of healthcare in New York State byvoting today.
After the public voting period ends on April 23rd, the top 10 finalists will be invited to demonstrate their prototypes to a panel of judges and a larger audience at 2 events: April 30th in New York City and May 2nd in Buffalo. You are invited to attend. As a result of these events, first, second, and third place will be awarded, concluding the design challenge.
