Taking medicine remains a crucial role in personal health, but the daily tasks and needs of life prevent users from paying attention to these needs. This application intends to bring personal health needs to the forefront, and engage users in a clean, streamlined, efficient, and aesthetically pleasing manner.
What it does
The application reduces the complexity of tracking medical needs for two kinds of users. The first are recipients of medicines, who would use the system to track their medical needs like taking pills. The second, caretakers, may use the system to receive updates on whether users fulfilled their medical needs. We intend for our users to add, edit, and remove reminders, which can be made as recurring to a tailored time of day.
How we built it
Lots of love. Some Soylent. But mostly the React Native library for the front-end, Node.js for a back-end server, and integration of SMS messaging and Sendgrid emails through Twilio.
Challenges we ran into
Additionally, we ran into multiple issues regarding version control of our code across multiple users. By extension, we ran into communication challenges. So goes the saying: _ git merge, git wrecked _.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
What we learned
Be smart about version control. Communicate, plan, and design even during short time limits.
