While designing the home screen, I came up with some features we can include. As I was writing up the design for the home screen, I was trying to come up with a way to give the user an easy way to return to this main page. I became interested in the design used in the CNN app used to the left. The "CNN" logo on the top left doubles as a pull down menu. I wanted to have a a "Crohn'sPROMISE" banner on the top of the app and decided that this could double as a scroll down menu with different shortcuts throughout the app.
All About Me
The Quality of "My Care"
- I do not know all of the potential prevention and interventions that we want to be recorded
- I have not been able to come up with a simple intuitive way to group different care measures
This is an important page in the app that will create the checklist item at the top of the Patients Report Card. We need to make it easy for patients to find the different interventions that are either in their care plan or that they have experienced. I want to make a pre-compiled list that a patient can scroll through, but I do not want to throw everything together because this would produce too intimidating a list. If we can come up with an intuitive way to break this list into even two categories, I think that would do the trick.
The reason we are asking about their care is because we want to have a checklist at the top of the patient's report card. We need to know what a doctor plans on doing and what they have completed and I want to integrate this information into this screenshot. I also realized that we can add one more criteria. A "yellow -dash-" on the checklist can mark an item that a patient is interested in discussing with their doctor. At the top of the "My Care" screenshot, I put a scroll menu with three options: ""Completed Intervention" (and then a date input will pop up), "Recommended Intervention" and "Want to Discuss". These options will sort the different interventions and orgnize the checklist on the Patient Report Card.
All in all today was a productive day of design. I went much slower and think I found great improvements from the screenshots I created yesterday. I will continue on this path as I finish up the remaining screenshots.
