CONTEXt & Challenge
In spite of a universal trend towards user centered design, many facets of the healthcare industry still struggle to keep up with this progression towards usability, leaving physicians and patients interacting with tools that sacrifice intuitiveness and ease-of-use for raw functionality. EHRs (Electronic Health Records) are an essential part of a physician’s day-to-day, but between a lack of interoperability between systems and usability that does not match actual clinical workflows, they can prove to be an unexpected source of struggle.
Patient Insight’s goal was to create a visualization tool that leverages the existing EHR system as a data warehouse, reorganizing and displaying complex patient health data in a compact, intuitive way. As a UI Designer, I was brought in to the team to help on design a new EHR concept. We had a span of roughly two weeks before we would deliver a presentation to Kaiser Permanente in order to secure further funding and support.
