The application was demonstrated at a press conference at Microsoft’s TechEd Conference in Orlando, FL held on June 12, 2012.
Idea’s Rounds application was developed for Microsoft’s Healthcare division as a project to demonstrate the capabilities of the Windows 8 operating system.

The application features include a pen interface for consent forms, procedure descriptions, patient charts and a map showing patient room location. Another feature is the ability to either instant message or email other treating doctors.
