pMD’s New Look and Features for iOS 7
Apple's new iOS 7, released in fall of 2013, presented a fantastic opportunity for us to draw upon the operating system's great new features. Our iOS 7 users are now able to enjoy an unprecedented product update, offering a fresh look and enhanced functionality.

We wanted to give you a glimpse into some of the exciting new features of this product update. pMD for iOS 7 includes both fresh design updates and added functionality, as well as more subtle but equally significant product enhancements. Here is a before and after of what’s changed, highlighting some of the elements we feel are integral to the product update:

 

New Look


The initial, most striking change from previous versions of pMD is the overall redesign of the application. The user interface has been transformed to reveal a cleaner, lighter look and feel to match Apple's new iOS 7 style. We wanted the software to be as beautiful as it is functional!

You may also notice that certain features on the Census, like the search bar and filter, have been relocated to create a more intuitive user experience when navigating the app. The icons along the bottom now read more like a legend and less like a “what does that symbol do?” guessing game.

Drafts


Another exciting feature in this update is in the Drafts. We have reorganized the way patient visits are presented in pMD for improved accessibility to current and past visit information. Doctors will now be able to refer to their Drafts to view a history of the patient visits they have created and can keep track of their visit activity in a chronological manner. What we used to dub the visit “bucket” is now more like an organized virtual visit file cabinet.

 

Appointments


The Appointments feature, where doctors can track and create visits for their outpatient appointments and scheduled procedures, now has a sophisticated new look and enhanced functionality for easier navigation. The new calendar bar at the top allows you to skip around to different dates so you can arrive at the desired appointment more quickly, reducing repetitive scrolling.
