Filtering and Search System
(UI/UX - 2021)
Background - Igentify
Igentify® is a digital health company. It has developed the world’s first Digital Genetic Counselor – a digital platform for genetic tests providers. The platform is capable of providing a fully scalable end-to-end genetic counseling solution in both clinical as well as non-clinical (direct-to-consumer) genetic testing set up. The platform’s unmatched user engaging capabilities enable the test providers to give the best user experience to their consumers from enrollment & personalized consent for the genetic test, to the automated delivery of machine-generated personalized genetic counseling.
This area in the system is responsible for the settings which define how genetic tests are created and catalogued within the system. Based on these settings,
a genetic counselor can correctly assign test results to the patient.
The way search and filtering worked had to be overhauled.
Tools used in this Project
Starting with understanding the needs
The main challenge in this feature was to improve the UX flow of searching and filtering actions.
User Flow Requirements
Improve the “clinical significance” filter UI
Indicate “filter is active” on the search box.
Search Area Requiring Improvement
The filter tags appear to only be related to the "variants" column, when it should be identified with the entire panel
1 Understanding that the available space needs to be prioritized for the Panel
itself. This led to a reduction of other UI elements which were less critical,
removing the opening paragraph and rearranging two buttons in a hamburger menu.
2. Take into account existing design elements and incorporate them into the Panel.
3. Take into account the total number of filter fields.
New UI design
Filter section now identified with the entire panel
Active search is now part of the active filter
Handling tag overflow
Buttons rearranged in hamburger menu
