Although many focus improving care at hospitals, we wanted to be unique and tackle a different problem. We realized that there are many ambulances incapable of saving patients in time because they either fail to arrive on time, or fail to give the necessary treatment on time. We chose to tackle the second problem.
What it does
It allows bystanders and patients to send medical information to First-Aid responders, so they can quickly diagnose the issue and save valuable time. They also will be able to have a message conversation with the bystander/patient for more information about the situation.
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
We had to steer away from our initial plan because we noticed many problems with it as we moved along. It was hard to quickly change a feature because of issues with data storage and a few UI problems.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We are proud that we finished the project in time even though we had to change many features past half way into the hackathon. We created a well designed website to promote our product as well as a prototype login system.
What we learned
We shared skills with each other and taught each other some tips and tricks to code more efficiently. We also learned how to coordinate as a team, especially since it was the first instance in which we worked together as a team.
What's next for HackathonThing
We want to create an app so it can fulfill its desired purpose as well as create a database to store user information. We will like to tighten security and then finally flesh out the application to help save many around the nation.
