I initially thought that a touchless Voice interface would be ideal for a patient care application. However, a voice interface without a normal feedback loop feels quite weird. The interface should be fluid to evoke the user to log his conditions actively. I find a flexible workflow is mandatory to this screen as proper examination and utilization of this card could lessen doctor visits and reduce time at the drug store.
UX lessons from Dr.Sam Yen on transforming SAP Enterprise transformation and on design thinking gave insights on how a user would make his/her choices. As a designer, it is imperative to provide a delightful experience to the daily user.
Researchers at UC Berkeley, Science of Happiness has found that people prefer if the daily tasks are automated or limited to some scope rather than starting from scratch. For instance, people who are on a regular meal tend to be happier than the ones who have unlimited options. Hence, I suggested choices to the user to log their conditions.
What it does
It delicately captures the user feelings through swiping the deck of cards.
If the user swipes right, the item is supposed to preferred whereas a swipe in other direction meant they have other alternatives.
The application delivers a personalized card deck and based on user choices the physician or caretaker could suggest things.
How I built it
I choose the native base as a component library and real-time firebase database as the data store. I envisioned that the user preferred this type of interaction as it is playful and can be understood easily by anyone. Moreover, they could spend only a few seconds on it. There is also a room for the classical document writer and note maker.
Challenges I ran into
This is my first react native application and I find it hard to work with the right tools. The changes took ages to reflect on the simulator while learning, however, the repo from solve care team was quite fast enough.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
The application would definitely delight the user of all age groups irrespective of language barriers. This could create a sense of belonging and harmony between the caregiver and the user.
What I learned
User would prefer consumer grade application rather than classical forms. These choices give the designer to apply New- Renew techniques in the workflow. Rotate icon at top left seems intuitive than at the right bottom for the cards.
What's next for Stacte
Integrating it with Nutrilink(one of my earlier project) to suggest nutrition choices based on user selection.
