WHY - PROBLEM SPACE

“As an electrophysiologist I do not want to be distracted by tools around the data and the software operator’s mouse movements.”

WHAT - THE GOAL

creating a scalable design 
which prioritizes procedural data and 
minimizes mouse movements

INFORMATION ARCHITECTURE

HIERARCHY OF INFORMATION

11% increase of the physician’s view

Discoverability is not a principle for this product as users undergo extensive training before they use the product in the field. Driven by users workflow and frequency of the use of controls I utilized UI design elements to create a layered architecture including:

 

  • eliminating duplicated controls by defining the scope of their effects - panel specific or global (across panels)

  • expandable and collapsible menus

  • tabbing structure

  • including a ‘more options’ button

F SHAPED PATTERN OF READING

restricting mouse movements

The highlighted F-zone of the interface is clear of frequently used controls, thus restricting mouse movements in that area. This further emphasizes the procedural data.

“Use the F-shaped pattern to draw attention to the most important information instead of relying on the arbitrary elements that people may fixate on when they scan in an F-shape.”

HOW - RELEVANT RESEARCH

research backed design

COMPETITIVE ANALYSIS

optimizing screen real estate

Considering that the software is not a web based product and is used in a highly niche context, we had to rely on how our competitors handled certain features and their design.

competitor 1 - 85% procedural data

competitor 2 - 90% procedural data

Kardium’s previous Globe software - 75% to procedural data

FORWARD THINKING

offering multiple concepts

In an agile software team which values incremental improvement over perfect solutions, I aimed to provide two or more design solutions with varying degrees of usability, value and feasibility.

1. today - cheap and cheerful solution
2. tomorrow - more sophisticated, target solution

USER ENGAGEMENTS

context specific testing

At Kardium, I have experienced testing in different contexts depending on the stage of the design process. This includes early UX engagement, Usability testing and Simulated testing.

ENDORSEMENT

KEY STAKEHOLDER - CEO

It reminds me of a Tesla's interface now - the nested architecture and modern look.

KEY STAKEHOLDER - DIRECTOR OF PRODUCT

The menus are much more usable and contemporary. The toolbar is more intuitive and accessible. Makes a lot more sense, fewer clicks and invisible which is great.

KEY STAKEHOLDER - CLINICAL FIELD SPECIALIST

It was really slick in the demos. Even better than I expected.
