The inspiration for Petals stemmed from the growing need for patient adherence assistance amid the pandemic, where uncertainty in routine health habits greatly impacts our most vulnerable populations. We wanted to create a healthcare specific communication application which congregates relevant and useful information while streamlining the communication channel between patients and their healthcare providers.
What it does
Our app promotes patient adherence and offers a unique opportunity for healthcare providers to provide quality care. It allows doctors and patients to communicate in a novel way, as the app allows healthcare providers to assign tasks (ex. Physiotherapy stretches) and patients to submit their proof of completion of each task. Additional functionalities are offered such as clinic locating, calendar scheduling and more.
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We are very proud of ourselves for building a functioning and practical app in such a short amount of time! Great job everybody!
What we learned
All of our team members learned new things about react-native, and those of us working with Firebase also learned new things in that regard.
What's next for Petals
We will make more cool apps together, and try to develop a cure for COVID-19 using a combination of C++ and C#.
