Microsoft Health ICT Resource Center. MSCUI provides User Interface Design Guidance and Toolkit controls that address a wide
range of patient safety issues faced by healthcare organizations worldwide. Those
design guides and controls enable the quick and easy creation of a new generation
of safer, more usable and compelling health applications.

Design Guidance Information Accelerators
Our new information accelerators enable rapid access to the user interface definitions. We've created two types of accelerator:

- Crib Sheets
Interactive Quick Implementation Guides present guidance in a visual, hyperlinked style. You jump directly to the relevant guidelines and instantly see them referenced against usage examples. We're offering interactive guides for:
Crib Sheets provide 'at-a-glance' summaries of the key guidance points for those same guides (not the latter two). We're offering Crib Sheets as downloadable PDF files: just pick those focusing on your interests.
