Project description:

EXANDRA provides HCPs with a patient-specific treatment plan based on the Diabetes Canada Clinical Practice Guidelines.

Background to the assignment

Exandra will be the first medical software product developed by BI as the legal manufacturer and therefore needs experts in the field of medical device development. One key function within the team will be a UX Researcher. The goal is to enhance our understanding of our customers (patients, physicians, pharmacists), establish user research practices and optimize our feedback loop. For this product UX is very crucial because it will be a differentiation factor to get competitive advantage. As it does not have suitable resources and expertise for this internally, the contractor holds a unique position and provides significantly different services than the internal staff.
