As a part of my Career Foundry UX Design course, I was put in charge of the UX and UI Design for a health and well-being portal.
The challenge was to create a health and well-being portal used to organize medical information and appointments.
The app is designed for everyone who wants to keep medical information in one place and have fast and intuitive access to it.
UX research, design, testing and UI design
Pen and Paper, Figma, Miro
When I first dived into the challenge I was surprised at how fewer portals to manage all that data - especially in the European area - exist. Below are the main conclusions I draw from my research:
Using more than one app for health-specific topics makes it confusing to keep track of it.
People forget to make appointments annually due to doctor visits.
No database or digital space to save notes for health-improving assignments.
No database for health-specific events/clubs in your area.
I created a competitor analysis comparing 2 competitors: Pomeló and gesund.bund.de.
I also created a competitor profile including their marketing and SWOT profile as well as analyzed the Usability, Layout, Navigation Structure, Compatibility, Differentiation, and Calls to Action.
Based on this analysis I defined Olive's main industry and target: Usually, parents manage the doctor's appointments for their children. Children start doing that for themselves once they become young adults. Older people (up to 60 years old) still interact with smartphones.
I created a catalog of questions with mainly open questions to collect qualitative data to validate users' needs and the core features of Olive.
Users most likely go to doctors like dentists, house doctors, gynecologist, children's doctor, physiotherapist
Doctors visits reach from 2 to 5 appointments per year (more when having children)
Handling these appointments is difficult because of their irregular nature.
Handing in invoices from self-paid treatments is quite complicated.
From these interviews and previous research came Olive's MVP:
Easy contact information management to quickly schedule new appointments
A way to manage the medical data of more than one person
Invoice and refund manager
I created 2 user personas of target customers based on real people to illustrate the core target audience, with a focus on the major needs of the most important user groups.
I created 2 user journey maps for for visualizing the processes a user goes through in order to accomplish a goal. After that I went on to create 2 user flows in order to focus more on the successful flow through the app and to know what kind of screens I need.
I conducted remote card sorting which helped me generate the information architecture of the app.
Based on the results I created the sitemap:
I sketched out the first wireframes using pen and paper to organize the main features.
Wireframes were created to validate and redefine Olive's core features using the design tool Figma. They were also tested in various usability tests (moderated in-person and remote in-person) with potential users from my target group. After indicating the biggest improvements I iterated the wireframes.
Below are three examples of the iterations:
I also changed the overall design of the interface. I created the favorite doctors' section right below the dashboard title. The "plus" icon was also exchanged for more direct action.
I created a style guide by defining colors, typography, and styles and applying them to the user interface (UI).
Feel free to try my interactive prototype with the following use-cases:
Use Case I
Imagine that it's the time of the year again to go to the dentist. Call him to schedule a new appointment.
Use Case II
You just had physiotherapy and had to pay the invoice directly to the therapist. Submit the invoice to your insurance to initiate the refund.
Use Case III
You want to manage the doctors appointments of one of your family members. Create a new profile for them.
