EFMP Member Testimonials
"We were stationed in a base where there was nothing around and we had to drive 3 hours just to get access to medical resources." -Mother of a child enrolled in EFMP
“The biggest challenge has been not knowing what bases to say you want based off of medical needs. It would be nice to have an idea beforehand so you aren’t wasting time on looking at bases that don’t suit your needs.” - A member enrolled in EFMP
“Navigating the enroll and reenrollment forms I needed for my son was like going through a maze.” - A member enrolled in EFMP
Week 1-2: During the first week we got connected with our sponsor to gain a deeper understanding of the problem and identified the biggest issues. We also gathered resources and contacts for potential interviewees.
Week 3-4: We reached out to our contacts and started the interview process. This gave us a deeper insight to the problems the families were facing. We also began working on the first iteration of the app with a flow map.
Week 5-6: We presented our solution draft to CGI for feedback to aid the design process for the application. We also started connecting with more EFMP families and received input to see problems from their point of view.
Week 7-8: We started to connect with Carestarter and met with Autism Learning Collaborative. We also started implementing the feedback we received from CGI to create a better design and wireframe for the application.
Week 9-10: We introduced our wireframe to the families to receive feedback on how we can improve our design. Then we presented a rough draft of our final solution to CGI to see how we can improve.
Week 11-12: We started using Figma to develop a working prototype and continued to finalize our presentation of our solution.
