Lenghty Patient name in patient Banner

Sep 22, 2009 at 7:56 AM

Hi,

As per the MSCUI guidelines syntax for showing patient name is FAMILY NAME, Given name (Title) and following is the max length recommended by MSCUI.

  • ·         Given name (40 Characters)  Ref : NID-0021
  • ·         Family name (45Characters)  Ref: NID-0027

My query is when user enters his name with max length, his name will be 85 character length (minimum). 

I don't think that his name can be fully displayed in the Patient banner. Is there any solutions ?

Following are the maximum character lengths as per the guidance which can seen at http://mscui.net/DesignGuide/Pdfs/Design%20Guidance%20--%20Name%20Display%20and%20Input.pdf

Field

ID

Guideline

Title

NID-0014

Input control must allow a maximum of 35 characters.

Family name

NID-0021

Family name input box must accept a maximum of 40 characters

Given name

NID-0027

Given name input box must accept a maximum of 40 characters.

If the name field cannot be shown fully on a line then it should wrap. until it reaches the maximum limit. At this point it would be truncated with an ellipsis. The SL and WPF banner control both do the above. We also have a PatientName tooltip property you can set as required.

Thanks,
