TOPIC

Describe the problem your idea is solving (max 3 sentences). Define the problem & target, who has this problem. Try to define the problem as precisely as possible.

In the current scenario, many professional health care workers are usually in a dilemma about going to their own houses because they fear infecting their loved ones. The spaces provided by the government or hospitals cannot accommodate all these workers and they are left with limited options. At the same time; most commercial, educational and other organisations are empty currently because everybody is locked in at home and these could be used to accommodate these heroes in complete isolation.

If you had something ready before the hackathon - what did you have? NA

TOPIC

What did you build during the hackathon? (max 5 sentences) Describe the technical and non-technical elements as best as you can.

Firstly, we created a Progressive Web Application with Glide and Google Spreadsheets which is user-centric. App link: heroom.glideapp.io It behaves differently for different types of users (Health care professionals and citizens who list their spaces) while maintaining a common interface. To optimize the UX of the app, we had to use some formulation on the Google Spreadsheets. We also had to get in touch with many people to get their places listed and offer those to the doctors who might need them and we successfully could give safer accommodation to a few doctors.

TOPIC

What are your next steps / plans to go forward with the idea? We plan to spread this platform as much as possible and try to take help from the government in creating awareness among citizens to help their fellow workers in these difficult times. Also, we aim to get in touch with hospitals so that they could actively provide this option to all their workers. We also plan to get in touch with NGOs who could create awareness campaigns with the help of their volunteers.

Will the team be able to bring the idea forward - make it happen after the hackathon? 5

TOPIC

What kind of impact are you expecting to have with this solution? With the help of such a platform, medical professionals will be relieved of the risk of infecting their loved ones and at the same time non operative places could be put to a better use which aids the government too in calling in more health care professionals in red zones without worrying for arranging their accommodation. With the accommodation provision in place, it can also be motivating factor to many retired and non-practicing healthcare and medical professionals to come forward and help us at this time of crisis. Also after the lock-down ends at our respective countries, the inflow of students, NRIs and other such personnel can be responsibly handled by quarantining them at these isolated accommodation for greater good.
