G-nome provides a personalized experience tailored for the patient including medication reminders, symptom tracking and appointment making through a voice-activated care system.
Nurses are the most trusted healthcare professionals. They are with patients throughout the continuum of life and provide both emotional and physical care. G-nome does not replace the importance of trained registered nurses and doctors.
There is a nursing shortage in North America. Due to an influx of patients into the health system, the retirement of baby boomers, and educational bottlenecks, nursing positions aren't being filled fast enough to keep up with demand.
This is where our solution comes in. G-Nome provides a personalized experience tailored for each and every patient including medication reminders, symptom tracking, and appointment making through a voice-activated care system. We put ourselves in the shoes of disease sufferers, most specifically Lou Gehrig's disease for this project. We empathize with sufferers of ALS and conceptualized tools that could make their lives a little easier. Some common complications with ALS include muscle spasms, cramps and fatigue. Additionally, some medications have to be taken consistently everyday for successful treatment. To help ease the burden of these issues, we have implemented a tracker for symptoms and medication reminders through Alexa. With over 58 million of U.S. adults having at least one smart speaker in their home, it is an easy to install application for smart home devices which helps improve the quality of life for patients who are extremely ill.
Our goal is to bridge the gap between patients and healthcare professionals by providing digital automated services to make patients’ lives easier and ensure they get healthy as soon as possible.
