Understand the personal experiences of asthma. Gain Knowledge in how people affected with asthma currently record or track their attacks? Understand how people affected with asthma schedule their doctors appointments when they are experiencing breathing issues. Discover the forms of technology they currently use to schedule appointments or track their asthma. If they are not using a form of technology to track their asthma, find out what would motivate them to use new technologies. Learn about how family members and friends help the individual to cope or treat their asthma.
The data revealed which features potential users valued most. I created personas which helped to personalize insights gathered during the research process. I created a prioritized product roadmap to define which features were top priority for AMMA, and which ones would be added later. I created a user flow to determine how users would move through the product to accomplish their goals.
I performed both direct and analogous competitor market research which, shed light on existing features and features that could be intergrated into the amma application.
Tracking and Recording Symptoms - Helps to predict asthma attacks through monitoring the body.
Reminders and Notifications - to take medication, use of inhalers, pickups of medication, when to see the physician.
Alerts to physician - to notify physician when you are having an attack, previous history.
AMMA User Testing Prototype
In order to test the usability of my wireframes, I created a prototype using the low fidelity wireframes using Marvel app. Testing my marvel prototype with people from the target demographic confirmed which user flows worked smoothly and where heuristics needed to be improved. I performed in person usability testing using my phone with friends and people recruited via social media. Remote testing was conducted via Usability Hub.
Readability was of very high concern during the design of the style guide this is where basic type treatment specifications were established. I used Material Design Principles and integrated appropriate form elements such as: text forms, checkboxes, radio buttons to keep the data-input process sensible and accessible for users.
GOALS / POSITIVE OUTCOMES
- Alleviate stress and anxiety for caretakers of those with asthma as well as people with asthma.
- Increase a better understanding of asthma and it’s triggers as well as track current physical condition.
- Less money will be involved with emergency visits because user will be able to identify and understand their personal triggers.
- The app will remind users of when to take their medication and when they have visits to the physician which will enable them to manage their asthma and prevent negative outcomes.
