Niemann-Pick type C (NP-C) is a rare neurodegenerative disorder, that when discovered early enough can be treatable. The problem though, is there are just a small number of doctors that specialize in NP-C, and the ones that do are scattered across the world.
Interestingly, NP-C is able to be diagnosed with a simple eye exam–it just takes a trained eye to decipher the slight involuntary muscle movements that affect those in the early stages of this disease. Actelion saw an opportunity in connecting primary physicians with widespread NP-C experts–simply record a patient taking an exam and send it off to a secure database for review and potential diagnosis.

I worked primarily on the physician flow and wireframes during my time at ICON Wordwide. With the client's requirements in mind, I designed a simple process that takes the physician step-by-step through data input and exam instructions.
Below are samples of annotated wireframes from the physician's flow.
