Inspiration

Our inspiration behind the project was to help clients have an easier way to access their own health care at any given time. We started off this journey by imagining people who have a hard time remembering and bringing all their medical documents to the doctors office. For example, we thought of elderly people who have many health concerns and need constant access to their documents.

What it does

Our app sets up the clients with a database where they can create, alter and access all their medical documents on the go.

How we built it

We used React on the frontend and Node, Express, Firebase, and Socket.io on the backend.

Challenges we ran into

Completing our idea in 24 hours proved to be an ambitious and worthy task, nonetheless challenging. We struggled to complete everything we had hoped to but we were proud to have produced a live frontend app based on our mockups and a backend connected to Firebase with the potential to implement encryption / decryption for added image security.

What we learned

On the backend, we used technologies that some of our teammates did not have much experience with such as Firebase and Socket.io. This project gave us a good understanding of those technologies.

What's next for HlthTrack

Further designing / frontend development and improvements to the backend
