Personal experience and talking to medical students gave us insight into problems faced by the NHS as well as outdated systems to improve people’s health information and NHS’s recommended advice.
What it does
To streamline the end-to-end pipeline from testing results at the nurse’s end to people viewing their test results online.
How I built it
Python Flask server side. Plotly for visualisation. Node.js for nurse client side. NHS API calls - conditions, medicines, search and live well.
Challenges I ran into
NHS API understanding, HTML code generation, difficult to find relevant data (some did not exist), a more coherent technical layout - some field values to get text were difficult to scrape resulting in presentation and parsing difficulties.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
Live, working end-to-end MVP with data very similar to actual blood tests.
What's next for Elucidate
Security frameworks such as proxy re-encryption for access control between nurses and people + privacy requirements. Adopt the framework to expand on blood tests and other tests that are feasible to be made online. Improve user experience as well as use more NHS data to support test results.
