Creation of the Electronic Medical Record (EMR) system for a university hospital in the city of Mirebalais, Haiti. The software provides functionality like patient registrations, appointments schedulling, diagnostic and vital signals capture and patient records control. It was based on openMRS, one of the leading open source EMR frameworks in the world.
I have done mostly front-end development and interaction design in this project, but also some business analysis on appointment scheduling and the development of a live style guide for Mirebalais and OpenMRS to support contributors in the future.
During a visit to the hospital facilities in Haiti, Bill Gates himself called it "(...) a sophisticated system for keeping medical records". :)

UX DEBT MAPPING AND THE PACKS FROM THE COLLABORATIVE SKETCHING SESSIONS:
Being an agile team, we took iteractive approaches and collaboration seriously. We kept prioritising work to be done and, much like technical debts, we had what we decided to call Design Debts. These consisted of design improvements we wanted to make that wouldn't necessarily create new functionality, but would make general UX better. Prioritization was done based on a simple "gain vs pain" analysis - being whatever had a lot of value and low effort to implement the top of the pile of things we would do on our spare time.
Another important part was collaboration. I brought the entire team - devs, QAs, BAs, clients and PMs - to participate of sketching sessions where we could apply a double-diamond approach of diverging and converging ideas to come up with solutions that would carry many points of view within. Besides increasing the quality of the design, it also put everyone on the same page and created a greater sense of ownership.
