healthcare solutions framework
requirements analysis, user interface design
Every once in a while, the management of giant software
companies decides to shake things up, and they do things
like announce a complete overhaul to the software you thought
you'd just finished designing. This happened to our team while
developing a comprehensive suite of healthcare solutions, both
inpatient and ambulatory - no small effort, to be sure.
A mad scramble went underway to put new framework design
ideas in for consideration, and our team of designers worked
individually to propose several different solutions in order to get
an array of different concepts in front of decision-makers in a
very short amount of time.
While most of this design never left the drawing board, a few
of the key concepts were successfully incorporated into the final
overall re-design. Albeit a very small contribution, I like thinking
that I've made the lives of doctors and nurses out there - and
therefore also patients - just a little bit easier. Which is not a
completely unselfish thought to have, once you stop to consider
that you might just be on the receiving end of this thing someday.
