Patient Profiles

Patient Profiles

Problem: I have too many patients and I need to match all of them with complex trials

Goal: Give the user a quick snapshot of the patient, then let them dig in deeper.

 

 

When evaluating a patient for a clinical trial it’s vital to know the patients medical history. Physicians are often seeing patients all day and do not have ample down-time to collect and evaluate lab reports, physical notes and medical record before an appointment. For this reason, a patient profile has to be extremely digestible and give the viewer the information they need at the right times. 

After user interviews, user testing and a few design iterations, it became apparent that physicians needed to first see current diagnoses and drugs over time. Showing this data on a timeline saves the physician from interpreting value changes and dates. If they want to dig deeper into the profile, the user can choose to expose more and more values like labs. 

Here is one of many user personas used in the design process.

 
 

Another key feature of patient profiles is entering missing patient data. If a patient does not have ample data, then their trial matches will not be strong. After working with the product team, we devised two ways to add data: Manually entering the value and extract them from PDF reports. I designed these two workflows, then had users test them remotely (for quick feedback).

The ideation phase of the design process started with many ideas and sketches, then were narrowed down to few layouts shown below. These were tested and crituqued to devide on the best option.

High fidelity

 
 

The test provided data for which key features and interactions that needed tweaking, and also validated assumptions.
