Not everyone has access to a doctor, so why not put one in their pocket?

What it does

Chat bot interface through SMS for medical diagnosis

How I built it

Flask server running on Heroku. Twilio API for interface, Infermedica API for backend.

Challenges I ran into

Team split up more than half way through the hackathon. First time hacking alone.

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

Doing it in less than 10 hours

What I learned

How to use Twilio API

What's next for PocketDoctor

Want to add more features


I have reused a little bit of code from a previous hackathon that I participated in. (Basically the part which parses infermedica responses for follow up questions and diagnosis.)
