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.)
