Usually, individuals are advised to go to pharmacists or doctors to check the adversity of certain drug to drug interactions. However, we decided to create an app that enables users to access the Drug Interactions API to make people aware of the adverse effects of drug-to-drug interactions. This app makes it easier to check if a certain medication or drug has an adverse effect without consulting the pharmacist and doing excessive research on the web.
What It Does
When the user enters a certain drug, app will return a list of drugs that have adverse effects when taken with that certain drug. The user may also scan their prescription given by the pharmacist or the doctor and the app will return the list of drugs that will have adverse effects with the consumed drug.
The app was programmed in Java using RXNorm, Drug Interaction, and Microsoft's Computer Vision APIs. We used android studio as IDE with JSON and XML as data formatting mechanisms with MVC as design patterns.
