Idea Phase **

Doctor writes a prescription; the pharmacist fills it; you take the medication and get better. That’s how it’s supposed to work. But in the real world, plenty can go wrong, and it regularly does: More than 1.5 million potentially dangerous drug mistakes occur every year, according to the Institute of Medicine, the health arm of the National Academy of Sciences. There must be a better way to avoid drug mistakes occurs

What it does

Drug checker is a ioT device to check what drug is prescript by the doctor and calculate the correct amount that is safe for the patient. It will display the picture of the drug, the next scheduled time for patient to take the drug and the safety information about the drug. The device will using image technology and physical measurements to identify it contains the correct drugs for the patient to take

We will use intel ioT, mobile web and Ruby for Rails on the backend
