Minified worked on a year-long project alongside SP+EE to design and develop a large scale, working prototype of a remote healthcare system for a major health company to test feasibility and user experience.

It began as a series of click-through screens that could be used to show to users and gain feedback from them. As the project progressed, the functionality of the prototype was incrementally increased, first to test small features, and over time to test a coherent full system.

The final version of the system consisted of a remote health platform, with a centralised data store, a patient interface, and a health care professional interface. The prototype was used ‘as real’ by twenty patients and fifteen health care professionals (HCPs) for a month. Updates were pushed to both patient and HCP interfaces during this time as usage data and interview data was gathered and acted on.

Although prototyping a system to such an extreme level of fidelity (where the product is essentially real and distributed) is unusual, it was appropriate for a project like this one, due to the eventual very large size of the real version of the product that would result.

Although I cannot share screenshots or specific details of the system here, I’d be happy to talk through more detail in person.
