IA Problems

There is obvious confusion with the structure of the My Health section. It lands on the sub category “Test Results”. Although Test Results section is a very important category, other categories are equally important. Creating a My Health landing page with a dashboard was a priority. Goal was to incorporate all important information on one page for easy access based on client feedback.

There is obvious confusion with the structure of the IA and navigation. It lands on the sub category “Test Results”. Although Test Results section is a very important category, other categories are equally important. Creating a My Health landing page with a dashboard was a priority. Goal was to incorporate all important information on one page for easy access based on client feedback.

Research Findings

  • Unmoderated testing showed that users were confused how to find what they were looking for.

  • Card Sorting (Optimal Workshop) showed a large variance of were categories and sub categories should sit

  • Responsive web with mobile first was needed. This also brought to our attention that users wanted a patient portal on an IOS and Android Native app.

 

Navigation

With the early research gathered, I begin to consolidate repetitive action items and most importantly move towards a responsive navigation.
