2. UX Design and Strategies
Below are examples of my low-fidelity prototype that was created using Balsamiq.
Calendar and Appointment Tracking
In this application, I have included a calendar, time-keeping device, and an alert system that will ensure that the user continues to take their medications on time, eat on time, etc. They can add new appointments to their calendar to keep track of them, and even connect their application to their doctor’s/hospitals calendar system to keep more detailed information about their appointments handy at all times.
Care+ allows users to input their current medications and the frequency of which they need to take each medication, and will allow them to create alerts at various times of the day to remain on schedule. It will also let users know when they are running low on their medication prescriptions, and when it is time to refill.
Care+ also includes a nutrition tracker, as suggested during my first user evaluation. Using this tracker, users will be able to ensure that they are sticking to their recommended diet based on their health needs. They can input the name of the food they have eaten, track calories, nutrition information such as calories/fiber, and view an aggregated snapshot of their nutrition intake at weekly intervals on the main page.
Using this application, users will be able to track various aspects of their health, including allergies, lab results, health conditions, medications, and nutrition. This feature of the application would provide an overview of each health aspect, allowing the user to drill-down into more detailed information if desired. They can use this feature to enter new health conditions, allergies, medications, and other health-related information. This serves as a catch-all for their health care records.
