Process Highlights:

Why?

Being immersed in the health care industry myself has been an eye-opening and unparalleled, long-term contextual inquiry as a designer, that has fueled by passion for healthcare UX. Being in the position of physically, mentally, and emotionally, caring for the geriatric population resulted in the uncovering of pain points and an insider understanding to better design for this specific user group.

Overarching challenges:

User Testing

Script:

  •  A usability test is never to test the user, but the interface.

  • Please provide me with a commentary of your chosen actions and thought process.

  • My Goals are to identify problems in my design, uncover opportunities to improve, and learn about user behavior.

  • I will ask minimal questions and provide you with minimal answers to your questions, in an attempt to deflect questions back to you to result in a self-sufficient  conclusion and discovery. This will result in more accurate testing.

  • Not all of the apps functionality is working but blue indicators will highlight clickable areas. The keyboard pop-up for type-ins is not interactive.
