The high cost of doctor visits both in the United States and abroad presents a large barrier to patients who prefer not to spend excessive time and money for manageable conditions. The idea behind this project was to build a free tool capable of determining a patient's condition with a series of prompted questions.
What it does
DG-Doc allows a patient to answer a series of questions and obtain a doctor-approved recommendation.
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
Developing the UI took a lot of effort, and we also ran into some difficulties with linking user responses to follow-up questions and recommendations.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Neither of us has extensive experience with front-end development, which made it all the more satisfying to have created a tool that can directly impact patient health.
What's next for DG-Doc
We hope to extend this platform to enable doctors to build out the graph of questions and answers, thereby improving accuracy and reliability for patients.
