💡 Inspiration 💡

So many people around the world are fatally injured and require admission to multiple hospitals in order to receive life-changing surgery/procedures. When patients are transferred from one hospital to another, it is crucial for their medical information to be safely transferred as well.

❓ What it does ❓

Hermes is a secure, HIPAA-compliant app that allows hospital admin to transfer vital patient data to other domestic and/or international hospitals. The user inputs patient data, uploads patient files, and sending them securely to a hospital.

⚙️ How we built it ⚙️

We used the React.JS framework to build the web application. We used Javascript for the backend and HTML/CSS/JS for the frontend. We called the Auth0 API for authentication and Botdoc API for encrypted file sending.

🚧 Challenges we ran into 🚧

Figuring out how to send encrypted files through Botdoc was challenging but also critical to our project.

✨Accomplishments that we're proud of ✨

We’re proud to have built a dashboard-like functionality within 24 hours.

👩🏻‍💻 What we learned 👩🏻‍💻

We learned that authentication on every page is critical for an app like this that would require uploaded patient information from hospital admins. Learning to use Botdoc was also fruitful when it comes to sending encrypted messages/files.
