Medical Control SaaS

User interface design for a medical control, record of medical reports, radiographs, history of medicines, allergies and medical history SaaS.

To comply with my non-disclosure agreement, I have omitted and obfuscated confidential information in this case study.
All information in this case study is my own and does not necessarily reflect the views of the team.


In the middle of the 21st century we are still tied in most cases to physical medical records, kept in folders within archives or in places that we do not remember later.

That is why it was necessary to create a tool that would allow us to save patients' medical histories, allergies, medications they use, X-rays, ultrasound scans and all relevant medical information that could be easily shared and that would be in the cloud.

Business Objectives

Design a SaaS that allows to keep all the medical information and that can be shared with doctors, relatives and any person that is necessary.


  • 1. That all medical information can be saved, edited and shared within the platform and through other means such as Dropbox, Google Drive and others.
  • 2. To keep track of the medicines the patient takes, allergies, operations performed on the patient and any relevant medical information such as appointments and laboratory tests.
  • 3. That doctors also have profiles within the platform so that the user can share their information, make any queries to their doctor and that doctors can prescribe medicines or make video calls to their patients.

My Role

Being the only UX UI Designer I participated with the Product Owner from the ideation phase to the implementation phase in the development environment supporting a team of 3 developers and 2 QA Engineers.
I did all the research work, user interviews, UX Artifacts, wireframing, prototyping and UI Design.

I did all the UX Design (research & tools) but for this use case I will only focus on the UI Design process.

UI Design Process

In this case it was very important that the design was optimized for use on tablets, since the client wanted users (especially doctors) to be able to use it comfortably with an Ipad.

The SaaS also had to be very easy to use and practical in its mobile version, so that patients could use the tool at any time and in any place.

So I started with the sketches and wireframes focused on Ipads and mobile phones and then adapted it to desktops and laptops

In the case of the doctor, my goal was that the three main actions: Search patient, search medical history and add new patient, were always one tap away.

In the case of the patient, my goal was that the user could easily access all the information in his medical history: Medicines, x-rays, medical prescriptions, history of diseases, allergies and operations.

Color testing was done with colors analogous to the logo colors, I also proposed adding night mode to avoid eye strain mainly to doctors.

My featured contribution

Fast and effective

My main contribution was to make the interface as easy and quick to use as possible for doctors when creating patients or prescribing medicines, as well as for patients who needed to search and share their prescriptions or any information related to their medical history.

It was also my idea to incorporate a Whatsapp-type chat within the SaaS where patients and doctors could share information, doctors could also communicate with each other and groups could be created to keep the whole family up to date with the progress or requirements of their loved ones' illness.
