Hill-rom came to us for a proof of concept as well as an accessibility refresh to their existing icon system.
Hill-rom provided over a hundred different status icons that were heavily embellished in gradients and shadows with hard to read color choices. Our goal was to come up with a visual treatment system that would require the least amount of rework / redrawing. Upon establishing that system the next challenge was to create a one screen interface where hospital staff can see their designated patients.

How can we make hospital room statuses as accessible and legible as possible for the hardworking staff whom need to know the status of a patient at a glance?
