Cohort Panel Re-Design
Population analytics is one of Genospace’s most powerful tools. Researchers can examine an enormous group of patient’s attributes to make hypotheses. Users build cohorts by selecting values and Population Analytics tells you how many patients match your cohort. The only problem was the cohort panel was extremely unintuitive, so users were unsure if the they had built their cohort correctly, or if the number of patients calculated was even correct.
To start this project, I interviewed two of our users at a research hospital to understand which feature are most commonly used and which aspects of the UI was most frustrating. I then created lo-fi mockups and presented these to our users to get feedback & initial impressions. We continued to have bi-weekly meetings to discuss the design progression, until we reached a hi-fi mockup that everybody was exited to build. Throughout this process I shared the design progression with members of our engineering team, to be sure what I was designing was feasible.
Once it was time for engineering to start building this, I created designs for every use case in the cohort panel and mapped the features from the old panel to the new design. As a cross-functional team we worked through edge cases and details to quickly deliver a redesigned product to the customer.
