dc.description.abstractThis work describes the development of a system to support physicians’ clinical tasks by means of personal computers and Tablet PCs. The system facilitates the physicians review of patients’ vital information such as the patient’s problem list, laboratories results and diagnostic studies, vital signs, balance of fluids, nurse notes, progress notes, administration of medications, and medical orders. The system also provides interfaces for physicians to deal with clinical documentation such as problem lists, progress notes, health history, and physical exam. In addition, the system provides interfaces for physicians to generate medical orders such as: medications, laboratories, consultations, diets, restrictions, therapies and transfers. The system was subjected to a usability heuristic evaluation, which served to identify potential usability errors and to carry out the respective adjustments of the system.en_US
