Cancer Patients & Financial Struggles
What it does
Helps predict and manage medical debt for cancer patients
How we built it
We mocked an EHR sandbox environment by building ruby on rails API that can handle patients and associated treatments. We then created an IOS app that runs on a Firebase powered backend. The app helps us keep track of our users and display correct information about their financial journey. We send requests to our fake sandbox patient environment to mock insurance provider APIs.
Challenges we ran into
Business Model & Profitability
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Tackling an Unmet Need
What we learned
We learned that creating a sustainable model is sometimes more important than a comprehensive demo.
What's next for FiMed
A lot more research and development
