emsCharts Gold Page Refactors

At emsCharts / ZOLL we always strive to deliver the best user experience possible when building and designing our applications. We also take user feedback very seriously. We have listened to your feedback and performed our own analysis of emsCharts Gold. Thanks to our users, we identified several optimizations to the emsCharts Gold platform.

In analyzing page loading times and the overall user interface (UI), we decided to re-engineer/re-factor Page 5. The next pages targeted to receive optimizations and improvements are Page 2 and Page 1. Keep your eyes open for future release notes where we will discuss the various changes with each new software release.

All emsCharts Gold users should see a vast improvement in page load times and overall performance.

New in This Release

New Feature Highlight: 

The following new features are the most impactful for users, so we describe them here in greater detail:

The largest change that users will notice when entering Page 5 for the first time is the departure from the decision-tree format (Figure 1) for Secondary Survey.  This page is now using an accordion-style format (Figure 2).

Another change to the exam page is the removal of the "Body" tab at the top.  Instead, the body is available in a slide-out tray on the right side of the screen (Figures 3 and 4).
