Current ways of finding UW Medicine clinic information can be challenging. Search engines yield mixed results depending prior knowledge, and the lack of a mobile version of the current UW Medicine website diminishes the user experience on mobile devices.

To address these problems and more, I designed a high-fidelity prototype of the UW Medicine Locator - a native mobile android application for finding and navigating to clinics. The application streamlines the process of finding and navigating to over 100 UW Medicine clinics by providing a simple interface, enhanced clinic information organization and retrieval methods, ability to save clinics, view previous findings, and access to onsite navigation using Google Maps Floor Plan.
