Last year, we asked for feedback from our users on ways we can improve the Directory. We've taken all your comments on board, and we're excited to announce some new features to help supercharge your productivity and enhance the patient experience.
Managing services and overspecializations
Instead of being added directly to a resource, services and overspecializations are now located under their corresponding parent! This change was added to better represent the hierarchical nature of health sectors, professions, services and overspecialization, and to allow users to enter additional information on specific health services if necessary.
Search with body parts, conditions or symptoms
Search queries which reference specific body parts, conditions or symptoms are now understood and will return relevant and related health resources.
This is possible thanks to the latest version of our medical knowledge graph. Manually curated by our domain experts, it allows us to deliver you more relevant results and less failed searches.
Improved resource creation wizard
We know creating resources accurately and efficiently is crucial. We streamlined and simplified the resource creation process to gather only the most important information. Once the resource is live, additional attributes can be added to the resource if necessary.
Refreshed interface and map updates
We value your feedback and want to make Directory an optimal tool for all. With that in mind, we did a major overhaul of our user interface to optimize performance, reduce friction and eliminate UI/UX incongruities (a.k.a. nasty little bugs). This is part of our ongoing effort to make our users happy!
Keep an eye on upcoming features!
This is just the beginning of what we have planned for you in 2022. In the upcoming weeks, be on the lookout for these awesome new features:
- Improved filters so you can narrow down your searches and find the best resource for any situation.
- Service areas for resources, so you can quickly identify whether your patient can be treated by a specific resource.
- Custom field creation - the ability to personalize the Directory with information that is important to your organization.
