RESEARCH

CHALLENGE

Users are hesitant to sign up with Pandia due to the form’s confusing questions, tedious format, unintuitive user interface, and intimidating clinical language.

SOLUTION

By designing a shorter/quicker form with clear questions, a concise format, and a personable and supportive language, users will feel confident and successful in signing up with Pandia Health.

PAIN POINTS WITH CURRENT PRODUCT FOR ITERATIONS
  • The Homepage: The client wants a redesign of the homepage to represent their brand voice and how to use their services.

 

  • On-boarding Form: Pandia Health had a low conversion rate, only 10% of users were completing the form 
  • User's Questions need Answers: Users are confused and overwhelmed by Google searches about birth control and women’s health, Pandia has a pool of over 150 answers to help users find answers.

"Frustrated. Sometimes these forms make me feel frustrated."  - User | Research Study

DESIGN PROCESS

HOMEPAGE REDESIGN

The homepage design was freshened with a color palette based on the hydrangea flower that the client requested. Pandia also wanted a friendlier and welcoming tone so we included:

  • How-it-works

  • Icon illustrations

The icons were sketched by an illustrator on our team of four UX Designers.

THE FORM

The biggest challenge we discovered during user research was the time and confusion caused by the form. We designed a simpler user flow for the onboarding form that combined steps.

22 pages lessened to 15 pages!

PROGRESSIVE DISCLOSURE

One of the methods we used to combine the steps is progressive disclosure, the purpose of this is to solve information overload by not showing all the parts that the user needs to know at a specific time. 

 For more details about how we simplified the form please contact me.

"Progressive disclosure thus improves 3 of usability's 5 components: learnability, efficiency of use, and error rate."  - Nielsen Norman Group

Q & A (QUESTION & ANSWER) WITH A DOCTOR

Part of the stakeholder’s business goal was to provide a service that helps users get their questions answered. Pandia's doctors a plentiful knowledge base of women's reproductive health already published on the web. Our tasks as a designer were to design a Question and Answer section using an Algolia search API. The Algolia Search API enables a user to type a keyword into a search bar and pull from the most relevant information from the doctor's plentiful knowledge pool. 

I worked on the Q & A.
