Edwards Connected Insights Dashboard

An industry-first dashboard that analyzes hemodynamic data, resulting in positive patient outcomes and improved hospital ROI.

Role & Team

As the sole, senior designer on this project, I built the entire platform's design from the ground up through content audit, information architecture, user flow, wireframes, visual design, prototyping, visual QA, design systems, and documentation. I collaborated with marketing, product, and engineering to align business goals with user needs and ensure successful design handoff.

A Mission To Improve Standards

Connected Insights was designed for practitioners across major hospital systems at the administrative, service line, and clinician level. The software's objective was to aggregate hemodynamic (heart-related) metrics to inform protocols and standards, eventually leading to better patient outcomes. This was a new initiative for Edwards Lifesciences, traditionally a leading hardware company in the healthcare space. The interface required was highly complex, data-heavy, and necessitated thorough documentation to capture the software's intricacies.

The Tip Of The Iceberg

This represents a small portion of the final app's information architecture. The software's functionality included individual patient view with detailed drill down, reporting with various cuts of data, complex settings, filters, and permissioning.

A Work In Progress

When I left the team in 2021, the project was still in development—here's an overview of where it stood.

Screen 1: Custom global filters to target complex data sets.

Screen 2: Dashboard displaying aggregate data and key metrics.

Screen 3: Report creation screen.

Screen 4: List view of patient data with grouping ability.

Screen 5: Individual hemodynamic patient data with ability to drill down.

Challenges & Learnings

Besides the complex, data-heavy interface mentioned, the biggest challenge of this project was designing within the constraints of the sensitive healthcare field. Throughout the design process, the team had to ensure each new feature adhered to strict healthcare protocols and security requirements, slowing the project down considerably.

A key recommendation I made when moving on from the project was a pivot to a mobile-first strategy for more practical use in fast-paced hospital settings.
