Abstract [en]

A user interface for reading the medical record was designed and implemented on a work-station with a 19 inch colour screen. The text is presented on imitations of paper-pages. The pages are organized in bundles which are dynamically connected to scrollable index-lists. The turning of pages on the screen is the fundamental concept of the interface. A page can be turned by a mouse-click or by a circular mouse-movement. Elaborated feedback is given to the user in order to provide effortless orientation and navigation. The interface supports the basic ways of use identified in our analyses of reading habits. It also enables human perceptual and cognitive skills to be used. It seems very easy to learn and efficient in use.
