Usability.gov: Tell Us What You Really Think

Thursday, December 20, 2012

As we begin our redesign of Usability.gov, it is our mission to make it the leading resource for user experience guidelines and best practices. The website redesign will ensure that the site stays credible and timely, while still providing some reference material that remains applicable over time.

We plan to follow the same usability best practices and methods outlined throughout the site and share our progress and lessons learned with you as we go.

We’re Open to Your Feedback

To provide useful tools, content, and guidance, we need your help. We’re looking for your feedback and are open to the responses we receive.

We‘ve created a user feedback surveyExit Disclaimer for the site to easily gather your thoughts and suggestions. Our goal is to:

  • Learn what works on the site
  • Determine what you would like to see changed or added

Please take the surveyExit Disclaimer and tell us what you think. This survey will be available until January 1, 2013, but make it your resolution to respond today.

You can also join the conversation by commenting below. Talk to us on Twitter using hashtag #UsabilityRebootExit Disclaimer and follow @UsabilityGovExit Disclaimer to learn more about the redesign.

I believed socialized medicine is a mistake. In essence, the federal government is attempting to take over the healthcare system to take the profits and control citizens as it has in the student loan program. Forcing people to buy a product - health insurance - is un-Constitutional. At the very most, the federal system should be voluntary.Consider improving the private market if necessary. I am happy with the quality of my plan. I would like to keep my current physician.

First time trying to get information about individual coverage since the first day site was up and not really functioning. Today, I tried to get pricing and subsidy info. based on my state and income level, and from the Kaiser calculator, I could see that on an estimated income in 2014 of $11000, my health ins. premium would be well over $7000 for the cheapest silver plan, and well over $6000 for a bronse plan with no subsidy available to me as the calculator put me at 94% of poverty level. Well, how would a person of that income ever be able to afford health insurance at that price? It's insane, and I'd be forced to just pay the fine and hope that the law is overturned. I also, want to get pricing info. wtihout enrolling or signing up at this point. I can do that with getting an auto ins. quote, so why isn't the site set up to do that? Would make things much simpler and user friendly and help to allay people's frustration with the process and the site.

This is interesting. If done right, I think it will help our shop a lot. Other shops, too.

Marketing research is an initiative from a firm who would to help acquire information come up with informed decisions regarding products and solutions. Businesses need not always be experts at ways of research either.
