We met with representatives from MTPHA both on the technology side and the healthcare side to pinpoint their exact needs. They shared the paper format of what a standing order looked like so we could turn that into a digital replica. We created a journey map with different personas to understand how each user would be making their way through the website and what their exact needs were. From these exercises, we knew we needed a virtual way to update and access information easily and it needed to be consistent across four counties. Throughout this phase, prototypes were demoed and feedback was given to us to continue to iterate and improve the site.
