interopiO provides a portal where applications can be launched in standalone mode, without the the requirement of being in an EHR setting. This can be beneficial for testing the functionality of applications. A portal can also serve as a preview to Clinical Decision Support coupled with application functionality in an isolated setting.
From the portal, applications can be launched one at a time, with or without a patient in context. These applications would need to be previously registered against a gateway in interopiO's Administrative Console. To read more about registering an application see here.
To sign in to the Provider Portal, a user has to enter an email and password. These credentials are set up by an interopiO administrator on interopiO administrative console. For more details on authentication see here.
After a successful sign in, a user is redirected to the Main Screen, which contains a list of applications available. Depending on whether or not there is a selected patient, the list contains a different set of applications.
The Side Navigation Panel presents the main sections of the Portal. A user can show/hide this panel by clicking the ‘Menu’ button.
Select a Patient
A user has a choice between two options to select a patient:
Open the Patient History Tool by clicking the ‘History’ button on the Top Navigation Bar. This tool contains information about recently selected patients. To select a patient, click one of the suggested items.
Open the Patient Selector Tool by clicking the ‘Search’ button on the Top Navigation Bar. This tool appears as a pop-up window on the screen and allows a user to search by patient name, identifier and system. The results can be filtered by gender and age.
When a patient is selected the Patient Banner displays basic information for the chosen patient - patient name, gender, age, date of birth and MRN. To remove the selected patient from the context, click the ‘Close’ button.
Launch an App
A user has a choice between two options to launch an application:
Click on an application name displayed on the Side Navigation Panel.
Click on an application card displayed on the All Apps Screen.
When an app is launched the App Banner appears. This banner displays the application name and provides a user an opportunity to turn on and off a fullscreen mode. Clicking on the ‘Close’ button closes the application and returns a user to the All Apps Screen.
