UX Design for Patient History

While at Epic, employees across the company were invited to share UX ideas for the design of the electronic medical record (EMR) software. These are my sketches for a redesigned patient medical history. I was particularly excited about my idea for a more interactive family history. My hope was that it would encourage more engagement from patients and care providers during a very routine part of the intake process. I also believed that the more visual display of information would lead to more thoughtful review than a massive list of checkboxes.

I learned a lot about user experience at Epic, and it was enjoyable to practice, regardless of whether my idea made it into the final software release.

  • Completed: Spring 2012
  • Submitted to the Epic Ambulatory team for consideration as a future improvement to the user experience.
