Recently, a lot of people at our school came down with covid-19. As people were being tested, we noticed that every test site in our area was extremely busy. We wanted a solution to lessen the burden on health care workers and decrease the waiting time for people who actually need to be tested.

What it does

The diagnostics test asks a series of questions regarding anything related to covid, whether it be exposure, symptoms, etc. From their, it calculates the level of medical attention the user needs depending on their input. For example, a person with mild exposure and symptoms might be recommended to be tested, or someone with more severe symptoms would be urged to seek more urgent medical attention.

How we built it

We coded the project in java using eclipse. We split up the coding and worked on calls, and then eventually merged the project.

Challenges we ran into

After we selected eclipse as our means to code, we had trouble setting up and using it. Since it was our first time using it, a lot of the time we spent was actually simply figuring out how eclipse worked. Additionally, while we do have a little bit of java experience, we had to spend some time learning new java techniques to code with.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

We are proud of learning how to use eclipse as well as advancing our coding skills. In addition, since it took so much time to just learn eclipse and java, we are pretty proud of even finishing our project.

What we learned

As stated earlier, we learned how to use eclipse as well as some java. We also learned perseverance and time management skills through finding out how to use eclipse effectively all while coming up with ideas, coding the program, and designing it.

What's next for Covid-19 Diagnostics Test

There were some additional ideas we had that we weren't able to code, such as integrating data from the internet like nearby testing sites or the amount of cases nearby, as well as sending positive messages/reminders to help the user deal with their symptoms and/or get better faster. Our design was also lacking a little, so it could have been designed to be more appealing to the user.
