Supporting healthcare providers and the health of Canadians
Drug Access Canada provides drug access resources, support and advocacy for healthcare professionals across Canada. By helping to expand the role of the drug access navigator in healthcare settings, healthcare providers and their patients are supported in finding appropriate drug therapy solutions.
Drug Access Canada needed a powerful website to support its members and provide relevant drug information to both the public and healthcare professionals. The focus of this project was to design and build a website that would make large amounts of content easy to access, would be easy to navigate and present it through a clean, modern design that would differentiate it in the healthcare sector. From the start of the project Drug Access Canada expressed that they would like their website to be a modern take on healthcare web design and were open to exploring best practice web design trends.
The new website for Drug Access Canada needed a robust backend that would make content easy to manage and edit and at the same time create an efficient user experience for members. In addition, the website required a custom solution for providing healthcare professionals access to all drug programs in Canada, using intuitive search and filters to help find information quickly and easily.
Scope of Work
Solving the Programs page functionality challenges was the top priority for the Drug Access Canada website. At the outset of the project, we investigated similar models to assess their appropriateness for Drug Access Canada’s needs. This initial research gave us baseline user data that informed the development of a custom solution for the site.
As with every Inorbital project, we leveraged what we learned in our research phase to develop high fidelity wireframes of the site to ensure a highly efficient user experience. We developed a series of prototypes so that we could test different user journeys and ensure there were no pain points that would stop a user from accomplishing their goal.
Our solution was to create a responsive table with custom search functionality and filters. Understanding user behaviours and needs allowed us to develop a solution that delivered the right amount of functionality without the distraction of too many search options. The result was a well-functioning search bar that wasn’t cluttered with unnecessary filters.
Our design approach was to align the Drug Access Canada website within the healthcare industry while still creating a distinctive visual style for the organization. A focus on structure and subtle design elements let us create visual interest and personality to the Drug Access brand.
The end result was a modern take on healthcare web design, complete with exceptional user experience and a backend that is easy to for content editors to manage.
