Limited technological prowess in older generations, isolation due to the pandemic, and a lack of an accessible video calling service for older groups.
What it does
HealthStream is a video calling website built specifically for use in hospitals and nursing homes for the purpose of easily connecting elderly patients with their loved ones through technology. EyeCamC is a new device that tackles the potential problem of limited technology in caring centers, needing only a display to provide full access to our website.
How we built it
HealthStream was made using HTML Proof of concept video uses linkello. EyeCamC design: Camera $8.79: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07L82XBNM/ref=asc_df_B07L82XBNM/?tag=hyprod-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=343234125040&hvpos=&hvnetw=g&hvrand=16379154497705213898&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9031523&hvtargid=pla-717544328579&psc=1&tag=&ref=&adgrpid=68968886317&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvadid=343234125040&hvpos=&hvnetw=g&hvrand=16379154497705213898&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9031523&hvtargid=pla-717544328579

What's next for HealthStream
If the project moves further, we would first start with a trial run at a local hospital or nursing home for 3-6 months as well as limited production of our EyeCamC devices.
