In Healthcare it is very important to be able to present a clinician with the appropriate situational information when caring for a patient.   Applications for Healthcare must be able to flex workflow and application experience based on factors such as User Role, Healthcare Venue and Patient Condition.  

Using the Eclipse RCP platform, we have developed extensions that allow an application to flex based on these factors.   This has been used to build in-room dashboards, walkup applications and user applications.  

The following topics will be covered:

  • How to bootstrap an RCP application defining the available views and perspectives from an external source.   
  • How to add views and perspectives on the fly.  
  • Lessons learned and challenges of taming the Eclipse Workbench.  

Robert Farr received a B.S. in Computer Science and Mathematics from the University of Missouri in 1999.   In 2005, Robert began working with Eclipse RCP in order to develop Cerner's next generation healthcare applications.   Robert currently works for Cerner Corporation as a Distinguished Engineer/Chief Architect for the iAware Platform; an application platform based on Eclipse RCP technologies.  

Frank Rydzewski holds Bachelor's degrees from the University of Iowa and the University of Pennsylvania in Computer Science and Neuroscience, respectively.  Frank has been working with Eclipse at Cerner since 2005.  His involvement with the Eclipse RCP has included: leading a reusable component (SWT-based) team, the development of rapidly prototyped RCP Applications for demonstration internally and at trade shows, and most recently designing and developing a Critical Care Dashboard application that is currently in production at multiple facilities across the country.  Currently, Frank is a Senior Software Architect and is involved in the design and development of the iAware Platform, whose foundation is the Eclipse RCP.
