History of Doctors Control Panel


In 2007 the first version of the software known as DCP was created and in 2008 it was released for general use.

Very soon it peaked the interest of many savvy users.

There clearly was a need for some form of smart analysis within clinical software.

Over subsequent months, then years the functionality of the DCP was enhanced and expanded.

Ship Control Panel

The name 'Doctors Control Panel' is modeled after 'Ship Control Panel'.

A 'Ship Control Panel' (also known as Christmas Tree) on a submarine indicates the status of hatches, vents and floods. It required all indicators green before allowing the sub to dive.



Doctors Control Panel

Doctors Control Panel provides the status of recommended guidelines for a patient.

A glance at the DCP before a patient leaves consultation enables us to assess a patient's preventive care status, and thus promote interventions.



Clinical improvement with better outcomes and accreditation requirements are more easily satisfied when using the DCP.

Patient satisfaction improves through provision of more complete preventive care during consultation.

DCP introduces new work-flows, particularly with the provision of results, and streamlines existing work-flows.

Updates and upgrades

Initially the progress of development was accompanied by a development blog with the list of changes.

However, as the list of changes grew, it became apparent that a more structured approach was needed.

Unfortunately due to constraints of time, the management and curation of the development blog was deemed not possible.

Rest assured that the development of DCP has been ongoing and the list of changes is extensive and ongoing.

The future

Development and support of DCP is ongoing and there are no plans to slow down.

In fact, there are some big plans for DCP in the future.
