Diabetes is the 7th largest cause of death worldwide. It costs more than 320 billion euros to the world’s economy. But the worst, it robs us of our most precious gift. The years in our lives. Increasing the risk of early death by 2 times globally.
What it does
The problem is even worse in developing countries. with overall lower smartphone affinity, unstable internet connectivity and bad accessibility. Our target audience is the type 2 diabetes patient in the age group of 40-60 years. Doctor Sugar is a lightweight assistant to monitor your glucose while increasing engagement through education, and deriving useful insights from your historical data.
How we built it
We build a chat/voice bot that provides results and tips about diabetes. Uses Dialogflow by Google, Mongo DB along with the resources and expertise provided by Roche to simulate engagement and behaviour change.
Challenges we ran into
Integration between the different platforms (i.e. Telegram, webapp, slack, facebook etc.)
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
We got a working prototype with a database connection including a dashboard and a functioning android app, ios app, telegram integration along with feasible text message(SMS) support.
What we learned
How to create a simple and very light application in form of a chatbot to be used in resource constraint environments and how to look from customer's point of view.
What's next for Doctor Sugar
Lets conquer the world ;)
