This paper overviews private pediatric practice clinical data management needs and discusses the basic visit types. It then models the patients' trajectory in the course of a visit as he or she sees the nurse for routine measurements then the doctor for age-based well visit interviews or ad-hoc sick visit consultations. For both the nurse and the doctor, we consider conventional text-based electronic health records (EHR) data entry forms as well as an alternative, visually-based, user interface. We discuss the impacts of the alternative visual interface and projected benefits. It is our hope that the findings are generalizable to other medical specialties.
