About this project
There’s a saying in medicine that care is not always the same as caring. If this strikes a chord with you, know that there are companies out there that are working to change this situation for the better. PerformXhealth is one of them.
It’s a performance management system for hospitals that’s focused primarily on the patient experience. It helps medical personnel remember that we’re all just human beings after all, and that caring sometimes means making a conscious effort.
James, the company’s founder, commissioned me to design an interface for the software when it was still in the earliest phase of its build. But first, he needed mockups that didn’t have to be functional or even well-thought-out. They just needed to illustrate the concept to potential investors. True prototyping came after that.
We started from a set of rough wireframes designed by James. They weren’t as much about the interface as how the system would work. We used Jim’s thinking to design mockups he wouldn’t be ashamed to show.
If you design interfaces yourself, you might have noticed that these screens are very small. That’s true. This size was chosen so that the mockups could be easily projected in meeting rooms during presentations. Designing a hi-res interface won’t help if people can’t see what’s in it.
See what the actual software looks like below.
