User interface design

Meet user needs & define interface requirements

Why we do this

Poorly defined or inaccurate user interface requirements can result in an interface that is difficult to use, potentially leading to errors, patient harm, and costly treatment delays.

Well-defined user interface requirements ensure that the interface meets the needs and preferences of the target users. Intuitive navigation, and error prevention features can significantly reduce the risk of user error and improve patient safety.

Information architecture
and wireframes

Why we do this:

Site mapping is critical when designing any user interface as it determines how the content and functionality of the device are organised and presented to the user. Inaccurate or confusing information architecture can result in a UI that is difficult to use, leading to errors, frustration, and potentially even patient harm.

Visual development
and prototypes

Why we do this

In the medical field, user safety is critical, and prototyping can help to identify potential safety risks early in the design process. For example, a prototype can be used to test the usability of the device in a simulated environment and identify potential user errors, allowing designers to refine the UI to reduce the risk.

Test and iterate

Why we do this

testing and iteration are essential to ensure the safety and effectiveness of the UI, to refine the device’s design based on user feedback, and to comply with regulatory requirements. By testing and iteration, we can improve the device’s usability, reduce the risk of patient harm, and ultimately improve healthcare outcomes.

Software development

Software development involves writing code and building software applications. The process of software development typically involves the following steps: gathering requirements, designing the software architecture, coding and testing the software, and deploying and maintaining the software.

The development process may also involve continuous improvement and updating of the software to meet changing requirements and to add new features.
