Can you Imagine Reading Test Results this way?
For every diagnostic test at 1MG, the lab sent a PDF report that, highlighted the parameters with abnormal values, but gave little on what it meant for the patient. Also, being an app-primary platform, the PDFs were awfully hard to absorb on the phone.
The most complicated reports belong to Packages with a structure as shown. One could also just get a Test Group or an individual Test.
I began building and detailing my blocks bottom-up, starting from a single test.
Different Tests | Different Scales
Unlike most data sets, all diagnostics tests can NOT be mapped onto one uniform scale. For some, a high value is great, while for some it would be extremely dangerous. Some would just have a narrow safe range. This would be highly inaccurate.
Exploring result visualisation
Made various attempts to show the result on a similar scale.
Started with the not-so-great ones and eventually moved to including range markers and clearly highlighting values that need attention
The test card
Each test value would expand to give the patient further information to interpret and act upon the results.
Test group report
Getting a Lipid Profile, which is a group of tests would get you a report like this. Each test would then have its own details
And structurally, the package would show all groups included. And marking out ones where the values need attention.
However, for most patients, the first thing they want to know upon getting the results is which tests are not quite right. So let's just give them that! And let them dig deeper if they need to from the "See All Tests" button below.
