Mobile Application Design, 2016
HACC 2016 1st Place Winner
Worked in a team with three others to create an end to end solution for assisting and improving the lives of homeless individuals. My focus was on the UX and UI design of the project.
Homelessness is a serious social problem. The State of Hawaii along with many non-profit organizations such as IHS are working extremely hard at solving this crisis. One of the biggest challenges they face, is providing outreach teams with detailed and accurate information from referrals in a timely manner. IHS alone received at least 3,175 homeless referrals through, their website, businesses, hospitals and medical centers, emails, and phone calls. Instead of spending precious time to process incoming referrals, they could have a streamlined workflow with real-time data at their fingertips.
OHAI consists of three vital applications to provide one solution. A mobile app, a responders app, and a web app. Why two separate mobile apps? We took the next step to ensure that our solution can be further secured when implemented by segregating application functionalities.
