Presented at Chicago Health 2.0 Meetup, Nov 9, 2011:
Two brave Chicago-based companies, Leslie's List and Human Practice, submitted their web-based Health 2.0 apps for a no holds-barred rigorous user experience (UX) teardown. Jasmin Phua, a user researcher and user experience designer will walkthrough design issues and offer suggestions for improvements with illustrated examples.
Leslie's List (http://leslieslist.org/chicago/) was founded by Dr. Leslie Ramirez and Jeff Bailey, to help patients and prescribers find affordable medications and healthcare services. They've been featured in the WSJ, Forbes, and NBC Nightly News.
Human Practice (https://humanpractice.com/) was founded by Moses Hohman and Dr. Sehjin Han, to help patients select their care provider by "meeting" them online first, via smart physician profiles. They won our start-up pitch contest back in July. **You'll also get a preview of their social recommendation engine which will be soft-launching for the Chicago area**
