Working with design partner Clade, we rapidly prototyped a complex member approval process for the Share My Health application in just four short weeks. The prototype demonstrated to key stakeholders the power of the idea— creating an easy way for patients who may not have various forms of identification to securely share their health information with non-profit care providers. Within the quick timeline, we aimed to deliver prototype code that the client could both test with key users, but also later reuse on the final product.
We leveraged Create React App to quickly spin up a React app and used session storage to store variables for things like mimicking authentication and stepping through the member approval process. Keeping our code modular, we were able to ensure that front-end components easily translated to the eventual Django app. We utilized modular styles, and react-bootstrap so that SCSS code could be reused as-is. Perhaps the most important for an app in the healthcare space, we were able to ensure that the prototype met accessibility standards, making the code even more reusable.
