As I write this post, we are feverishly working on our presentation for higher-ups at Premera on Thursday, as well as the final report on our design process. Our initial presentation went quite well, and we got some great feedback; as a gigantic group, the rules apply to us a bit differently, so we’re making […]Read more "Dec 6, 2014: Wrap-up"
Last week, we of group 2 decided that our idea for simple reviews immediately after a visit could be simply and elegantly combined with group 8’s continuing review system for repeated visits. Our two four-person groups combined, then, into a single mega-group which took dominion over the review system with an iron fist. Most of […]Read more "Nov 22, 2014: Consolidation"
This week we presented to a larger team from Premera, in a much larger venue! We made a number of edits to our presentation since last week’s post, and received feedback from Karen and Linda with regard to its design. Thankfully, we were able to incorporate it all before the presentation, which I think went […]Read more "Nov 16, 2014: Use Cases"

However, they’re important for prioritizing: everyone wants to be […]Read more "Nov 8, 2014: Elaboration on One Idea"
This week we went through the process of brainstorming, using our research to come up with as many ideas as possible and then narrowing them down to the six best entries to further ideate on. We did this through two distinct sessions. As part of class time on Thursday, we got together with our paired […]Read more "Nov 1, 2014: Brainstorming"
Today we gathered in the studio to put our heads together and come up with some concrete frameworks for all the research we’d been doing. Before coming in, we each took on a single focus that we’d previously identified and did some secondary research on it, and when we arrived we quickly summarized that to […]Read more "October 25, 2014: Research Frameworks"
Today we met up for our first official meeting at Cafe Allegro to get to work on researching existing healthcare and doctor-finding options. Outlook: bleak (for current existing options) and hopeful (for our purposes). Most existing options seemed either to be nonfunctional or designed in such a way as to make them very difficult for […]Read more "October 19, 2014: Secondary Research"
