How we built it
This model was built using Appery.io, an app building service which uses Angular.JS and ionic to make cross-platform apps.
Challenges we ran into
Designing information flow, adding code behind visually programmed front-end and having the front-end still update afterward.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Bring together a team of different backgrounds to produce an innovative app. Developed a solution that improves quality of care provided throughout the local public health system.
What we learned
Through the use of technology we can break down access barriers to healthcare in a financially responsible way. Through innovations in nano-technology and healthcare, we can potentially decrease the mortality rate by making people more aware of their health.
What's next for E-Care
We will present this information to the people of St. Louis Public Health to make awareness of the disparities within our community. Help access care for all.
