UCB is a pharmaceutical company, with a focus on neurology and immunology. Their biggest ambition is to change the lives of persons living with a severe disease. To offer each patient a solution for their specific issue, it’s important to follow a patient’s activities and problems on a day to day basis.
In total, a set of 4 applications was developed:
- eDiary: application on smartphone, for the patient
- Investigator Portal: application for the doctor/ researcher
- Site PRO: tablet application, used during a visit for filling out extra questionnaires
- Study Admin Webapp: umbrella application, where doctors and patients can be managed in the system
For the doctor and patient, especially the eDiary and Site PRO were of great importance; these were also the first items which were tackled during the project. For each of the applications, a first flow was designed; linking each screen in a schematic overview. That way we could guarantee that all functionalities were included and that none of steps were forgotten during the process.Once the flow was finished, it was time for developing the Wireframes; and finalizing the different screens in a detailed design. These screens were used as a basis for the development team and the further development of the applications.
The result of this project was an overview of the flow and clear insights in the connections between the different screens.
Besides the flow, a set of screen designs (Wireframes) were developed and annotations were added to brief development. This document will be used as a visual communication tool between the different parties working on the project.
The development team is working hard to get the apps up and running; and to start user testing as soon as possible!
UCB will receive better insights in certain diseases and disorders thanks to the new application set. This can help to develop new medication or solutions and to improve the life of their patients. Of course, the applications will constantly be improved and adapted; according to the needs of doctors and patients.
