Elevating Health Monitoring

Symptom tracker

The user interface has been changed due to the client confidentiality


The client needed a solution for their patients who suffer from PV – a slow developing type of cancer. It’s really hard to track symptoms and monitor the patient’s response to the medication because the effect is very slow.

Patients can use the PV symptom tracker to log and monitor any symptoms or side effects they experience while taking medications. This empowers them to actively participate in their healthcare by providing accurate information to their healthcare providers, enabling timely intervention if needed, and improving medication adherence by addressing concerns related to side effects.

By leveraging innovative design principles, I’ve created an app that fosters engagement and encourages users to take control of their health journey. From personalised symptom logging to insightful data visualisation, the UI design priorities user-centric features that enhance the overall experience.







User Interviews

After talking to the representatives from Novartis and the patients, we discovered that PV patients struggle with monitoring their health over long period of time. In addition when they come to the doctor they don’t have all the analysis they’ve collected over the years. So we wanted to give them a space where they can track their blood work, symptoms and overall mood over the years in one place.

User Stories

To make ure all the information provided is relevant, I’ve outlined the main user personas and wrote down the user stories to make sure the patients and the doctors will have relevant information prior the appointment.


The prototype was done within 2 month, including interactive elements a small design system. Symptom tracker has 4 parts: introduction into the illness, the MPN10 quiz, overall mood and the dashboard with the health data.


Symptom info

Users have an ability to scroll through their symptoms and see the annual fluctuations. They can also specify how they feel using the common phrases given by the patients prior sending the notes to their HCP.



For the mood tracker it was important to create the UI so it resonates with people of different backgrounds and ages. So the weather was taken as an inspiration and I’ve added the graphic that will help users indicate their overall feeling.


Accessibility and readability of the platform was crucial as the end users would normally be elderly people. So the symptom tracker data have been significantly enhanced, while visual clutter has been minimised.
Large text, clear labelling, simplified graphics, and strategic use of colour ensured that information is conveyed in a digestible format, while interactive features empower users to explore data in greater depth.


Overall, a PV symptom tracker serves as a valuable tool for enhancing pharmacovigilance efforts, promoting patient safety, and advancing our understanding of the real-world impact of medications. HCP can better understand how the patient feels and address the symptoms that are slowly developing over the years to improve lives of people living with PV.
