While working at CSC, I worked on a project based in the UK for an application that displays a patient’s test results and records. This is a desktop application that shows a quick overview when all 9 of the widgets are displayed with the ability to drill down to view each widget in greater detail and also be able to quickly switch to a more detailed view of the other widgets present.
When I joined the project the initial discover stage was complete and I was able to take the information gathered by my colleague and translate this into working prototypes. We iterated on a number of different options in Balsamiq to quickly show all the different results on the same screen. In a clinical environment there was a requirement to quickly be able to jump from say medication to test results as there are often dependencies between the two. Another key element to the design was the ability for each user to be able to configure their workspace. This was done by designing each section as a widget that can be toggled on and off. This allowed the users to be able to configure the workspace as was needed depending upon their role. I was then able to take these prototypes and test them with the relevant stakeholders to ensure that the relevant information was at all times displayed in the thumbnail view.
