Unite Account Planning

Led prototype-intensive sessions with developers and clients to create an information management system for hospital services. The project began with virtually no initial requirements and varying specifications coming from 5 different countries.

Multiple iterations of prototyping and workshops led to a precise understanding of client needs. Because the prototyping sessions were so comprehensive, the coding process was much smoother and the product was delivered earlier than expected. Received two internal awards for Customer Focus and Innovation.

Safety Surveillance Tool

Developed a profiling system for scientists leading researches on chemical compounds to eventually be used in clinical trials. We conducted research analysis with the end users and recorded their before to develop an optimal interaction design.
