WEB BASED PLATFORM FOR LAUNCHING & MANAGING CLINICAL TRIALS
This is a B2B subscription based platform that provides selection of customizable applications for clinical trials management staff. The platform is highly modular and gives users granular control over trial configuration, trial members and their permissions, creating integrated or isolated workflows, trial subjects management, trial supervision forms design and management of medical imagery and other artifacts.
My work: requirements gathering and assessment of modularity requirements, IA and user role based navigation design, UI framework development, wireframing, collaboration with the development team to produce testable prototypes.
Methods: user and business goals analysis, stakeholder interviews, use case discovery, user tasks analysis, IA, user flow design, wireframes.
Process in short: the initial project started with a smaller number of standalone applications such as trial subjects management application and radiology images QA application, and it grew over time into a larger platform that hosted multiple applications that can be used interdependently or as standalone solutions. Growing number of applications required design of the meta functionality that governed platform's configurations per each provisioned customer account. Complex IA and multi-role permissions posed a significant design challenge. To arrive at a solid solution the team went through multiple iterations of user role based task analysis and navigation concepts, finally resulting in a master user flow that informed all further individual application level design decisions. The process involved close collaboration with product owner, development team and user representatives (clinic staff) in order to ensure common product vision.
Top challenges: complex role based architecture and modular platform design, creating new paradigms of accomplishing tasks in an industry where a lot of processes are still done in the old fashioned way.
