“Prescription for Learning”
Web App Designed for Patient Accessibility
An Engaging UX Design for Doctors and Nurses to Easily Educate their Patients
Taking into account both ongoing usability testing results and user input, I designed a mobile-friendly, tablet-based learning program that combines the best patient resources from the National Cancer Institute (NCI) in English & Spanish with a custom, user-friendly interface. The program’s unique design allows health professional users to select and manage their patient education. Cancer patients benefit from the program’s easy-to-use and engaging learning environment.
Crafting Mobile Website User Experiences to Help Cancer Patients Learn Anytime, Anywhere
Usability testing at multiple cancer centers led to app improvements including a simplified main design and targeted pages for specific types of cancer.
The UX design of the program, known as CancerHelp Online, provides simplified navigation and easy to understand topic menus. This helps both medical staff and cancer patients find the answers they need. The user experience design also helps target the “Care and Support” topics for each cancer center. This gives patients and their family members greater access to information about important classes and programs including support groups.
UX Design for Touchscreen Learning Programs
Targeting the Needs of Low-Literate, Underserved Cancer and Diabetes Patients
Interactive, multi-media, bilingual software developed for health education research for Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine. Software was designed to run on touchscreen kiosks. Learning program design was for a National Institutes of Health grant program to help underserved patients learn about their health at Chicago-based hospitals.
