About 75 million American adults (32%) have a chronic condition such as high blood pressure—that’s 1 in every 3 adults
Having high blood pressure puts you at risk for heart disease and stroke, which are leading causes of death in the United States.
Glü utilizes a cloud based AI buddy to communicate with you and your family throughout the day to make sure you are taking your medicines and making wise choices when it comes to managing your health.
What it does
Glü is an ENGAGING Family-Social Health Management & Maintenance Platform
How we built it
With all the technologies available to us and the prevalence of IoT devices Glü promises to enable real-time management of chronic conditions and medication adherence for families. For our solution we wrote a cloud back end in C# and also used Ring Central's API to sms and voice call to track medication usage for our proof of concept.
In the future we will be integrating the Glip API and framework to make it easier for families as well as doctors to keep up with patients usage and habits.
Challenges we ran into
The biggest issue we faced was time management. We wanted to accomplish much more but were limited by our day to day availability. Also had some hard time translating and utilizing the Glip API.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We were successful in generating app mockups and designs that will go a long way when we fully build out our app. We also have really bonded as team in regards to the idea and it's potential to impact lives.
What we learned
RingCentral has some potentially powerful API's we can leverage as we continue to build out Glu.
What's next for Glu Health
We would like to integrate with other smart devices and continue to explore unconventional UI's like text and voice further.
