Inspiration

Since the last few years have been full of diseases, illness, a huge number of people have been in need of medical assistance. Our elders suffer from certain illnesses and have a hard time remembering which medications to take, in what amount and what time. So, Similarly I made an app that saves all medical records and prescription either in email form, scanned copy or written form and setting medicine reminders that enables client to determine the pill amount and timings to take pills for everyday.

What it does

  • Problem 1 - Most of the patients frequently have difficulty in remembering or managing multiple medications .Many a times they forget medicine name and how they look like, especially for elders. Medication non-adherence leads to 125,000 preventable deaths each year, and about $300 billion in avoidable healthcare costs.

  • Problem 2 - We all have multiple folders in back of our closets full of medical records, prescriptions , test reports etc. which lets all agree are a hassle to carry everytime a doctor asks for our medical history .

  • Problem 3 - In times of emergency every minute counts and in that minute finding contacts of our caregivers, nearby hospitals, pharmacies and doctors is extremely difficult.

Challenges we ran into

  • CRUD operations in firebase took a lot more of my time than expected.
  • Pushing image notifications was another obstacle but with constant hardwork and support I finally completed it .
  • With the help of our mentors and Youtube research I worked all night and handling this project with college classes was a test of my time management and that's totally worth it at end.

What we learned

I learned how to worked quickly with Dart. I also learned how to use packages like contact picker, airplane mode checker in a effective way. It was my second time using Swift and I had a lot of fun and learnings while using it.

What's next for Med-Zone

In the future, I can add features of providing diet charts, health tips, exercising/yogas to follow, and some expert insights for which I can charge the subscription fee.
