Alosa Foundation - Information Architecture and Interface improvements
The Alosa Foundation is dedicated to making sure that doctors receive unbiased advice on the treatments available for their patients. Their signature Academic Detailing process offer medical education for health care professionals that comes from evidence-based research that comes from academic and a variety of other groups.
 
With the rapid expansion of their site, and so many data modules available, the result was they needed someone to review their website and provide them with a UX assessment.
Project Role
I was asked to review the site and make suggestions about how to improve accessibility of information (IA), navigation, and also how best to organize informational content (UI). I also made suggestions regarding adding a more distinct social media presence.
Brainstorming
The website is mostly used by doctors and other medical professionals, meaning their research would frequently be made "at-a-glance" using mobile devices. Ease of accessibility to the clinical information was going to be paramount.
 
A complete list all the modules available from Alosa was added to the Home page, for instance allowing a doctor who might be about to consult with a patient to easily find information related to their condition. Vertical and horitzontal menus were added to help better organize the large amounts of related information, making for a better user workflow.
Wireframes
The new scrollbox list of data modules was added to the Home page, as were improvements in navigation on the Module, IDIS, and About Us pages. Notes were added that illustrated the reasoning behind the new design decisions.
