More About this Project

This 9 month project involved the complete redesign of GE Healthcare's PACS used by radiologists and technicians. I worked with 5 other designers and researchers to conduct contextual inquiries of over 12 clinicians. In addition, I contributed to 140 usability findings reports to GE Healthcare on their existing RA-1000 PACS product. These findings were utilized to improve the usability of the next PACS release. My main role involved the creation of a functional prototype using Microsoft Expression. This prototype showcased our new design which had several themes: improved efficiency, reduction of visual clutter, simple search, and better communication support.
