We can all agree that nurses are at the heart of our healthcare system, especially during this pandemic. Inspired by their dedication, we decided to make a web app and notification system that will help nurses in their everyday work.
What it does
We present to you E-Charts, a tool that nurses can use to keep track of patients’ information and remind them of patient treatments via text messages.
How I built it
We make use of Azure function apps and Twilio for text message notification purposes, MongoDB for the backend, and Flask for development.
Challenges I ran into
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
Our team is proud of overcoming the challenges we faced and deploying a website that works and is a representative prototype of our idea.
What I learned
What's next for E-Charts
There are several features we can add to our web app and SMS notifications. For the web app, we can work on improving the user interface to make it more aesthetically pleasing. With the SMS notifications, we currently send texts to one phone number. In the future, we can implement a feature that allows multiple nurses to receive notifications for their own corresponding patients.
