Client: Navigant – Healthcare Consulting
Project summary: This project consisted of a desktop website built on the SharePoint 2010 platform and a supplemental iPhone app that allows doctors and physicians to track and measure various KPI’s and view Key and Ad hoc reports.
Industry: Healthcare Analytics & Benchmarking
Duration: 4 weeks (June 2013)
My roles: Visual Designer, UX Designer, Interaction Designer, Graphics Production
As with most people, healthcare professionals are always on the go, needing access to their up-to-date analytics to make sure they are on target.
One of my contributions was supplying this third-party team with the visual design comps; I took the Fireworks wireframe file and applied a visual design layer on top. Once client-approved, the third-party team took my completed file and transferred it straight into development.
App Icon Concepts
UX Flow Documentation
I worked closely with UX members on our team to create a functional spec document and annotated wireframes, which guided the third-party team to complete the app.
Desktop Website Redesign
The need for a new desktop website arose after the client completed fleshing out their data cube and their customer base started growing, creating a demand for a user-friendly, visually appealing site.
Our team worked closely with the client to gather requirements for content on the pages. We emphasized the need to lock down content (as it always greatly influences design decisions but often seems last priority). After reviewing and approving a content list as well as what reports they should be surfaced, I quickly began wireframing – designing with both user and business goals in mind.
Our client already had existing branding and color palette, from which I took the more vibrant swatches to create a new palette (shown above). Since the reports had the potential to be in an array of unknown colors, I wanted to keep the overall design predominantly white, grey and brown so as to not distract from the reports.
Key Learnings / Challenges
During this project, I learned how to work with an iOS development team. I learned tips on how to design specifically for the device and hand off deliverables for an iOS app. One challenge for me was that I was new to reporting and visualizing data, so I leaned on my team mates who had more knowledge in that space. As a result, I learned more about data visualization! Win – win.
