It's an app inspired by realizing the need for a chat forum for patients who want instant consultation from doctors.
What it does
It's a chat forum that allows patients to chat with doctors regarding their problems. It has been developed both on Android and iOS. It also includes a map that gives the address and directions to hospitals in the patients' city.
How I built it
We built it using Android Studio And built the database on firebase. The database for iOS has been done on parse and its front end on the iOS developer platform.
Challenges I ran into
We had a hard incorporating the chatroom exactly how it was meant to be in a question and answer form, and had to settle with a message format.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
The accomplishments I am proud of is that it is the first time we developed a database on firebase or parse
What I learned
How to develop a back end.
What's next for HealthChat
More advanced chat forum with a question answer format and a database with the patients medical history for the doctors' reference.
