Feature-level Project

Ineligible prescriptions on cart

In Q1 2020, CVS got 1.37M total prescription delivery orders across web and app channel. The traffic visits have grown 940 % vs the same quarter last year. The cart visits are around 4M, where the cart abandon rate is ~60%.

One of the root cause is due to having ineligible prescriptions added to the cart(~31% of Refill Rx), which 66% of customers abandon their cart and intend to pick up their entire Rx if one of all Rx is ineligible for delivery.

The project initiative is to decrease the cart abandon rate by improving the ineligible prescription scenaios on cart.

Cart to Checkout conversion


Design Thinking Process

- Reviewed past research studies and analytics in Adobe analytics to understand what customers say, do and why, in order to define the root cause and job that customers need to get done.

- Developed a research plan to align our team around our research goals and assupmtions

- Designed the testing prototype with Sketch and InVision, and conducted 2-round usability tests with 5 participants per test in

- Synthesized and interpreted what I've learned into insights, and documented learnings throughout the prototype to make sense of what is working and not working.

Portfolio-level Project

Improve store items attach rate on cart

Before the Covid outbreak, the historic store items overall attach rate is around 1~2% in prescription delivery order. Although store items attach rate has grown exponentially over the post-Covid alongside prescription delivery volumes, driven by the pandemic and free shipping,

as prescription delivery grows CVS will see a natural headwind to the revenue if we cannot create a compelling experience of adding store items along with prescription delivery order.

Feature-level Project

Improve CarePass membership enrollment in cart

Due to COVID, CVS launched a FREE 1-2 day prescription delivery to all CVS patients and have experienced unprecedented growth, where overall order volume growth has peaked at 800k+ orders (20x growth). Value study has shown that high-level sizing being performed on how many patients are at risk of transferring to a competitor if CVS increases their delivery fee post-COVID.

The business initiative is to upsell CarePass member benefit, FREE Same-Day prescription delivery, to drive member enrollments and maintain cost per order.

It helps customers to unlock Free same-day delivery and shift towards a highly digitally-engaged experience, which supports the north star thinking of delivering a unified experience across in-store and digital journey.
