Inspiration

Few days back, one of my relative got very sick but because of COVID-19, they were not able to get any doctor assist. So at that point I got an idea to make a web app so that the person can connect with doctor with just a click of button over internet.

What it does

Insta-med is a web app over which a patient can get instant first aid and help from doctors all over the world with just a clock of button. Patient can have a video call with doctor and can even have an appointment at nearest hospital.

How we built it

We used HTML, CSS, Node.js and express.js to build it. HTML and CSS is used to create the interface and Node.js and express.js is used to create server and client side connection and interface.

Challenges we ran into

Major challenge was to make this much within a timeframe of 2 days. We somehow managed to make a proper web app but only limitation is we needed a TURN server for this to work properly but TURN server is a paid service. So we were not able to implement.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

We were able to make web app through which multiple person can connect together and have conversation with doctor just like they are with them. They can even chat with each other.

What we learned

We learned how to setup a server and make web app using various frameworks of java script. We came to know about terms like TURN and STUN server.

What's next for InstaMed

I am planning to add a TURN server so that people across the world can access my website and have conversation with doctors. I will also make it's interface much responsive.
