When the first experimental COVID-19 vaccine took place in China, hundreds of people queuing outside of the hospital waiting to get that vaccine. Imagine if the mass-population has to be vaccinated later in all around the world. There's a big chance while queuing they can spread the virus to people around them or maybe get infected because they cannot perform social distancing at all. We sure don't want that to happen.
The other big issue is that there are lots of conspiracy theories, rumors, stigma, and other forms of disinformation simultaneously spread across our social media about COVID-19 and it's vaccine. This misinformation creates frustrations for users many asking, we really don't know which one is right? Which one is wrong?
What it does
Cure is a mobile app that can save your life and save your time. The goal is to make the distribution of mass-vaccination become more effective, faster, and less crowded. With this app, you can book your vaccine appointment based on your own preference. So the user can easily choose the hospital based on the nearest location and easily schedule an appointment based on their availability.
In addition, based on my research I found that Covid-19 vaccines requires 2 shots given in 3 weeks apart to achieve that high effectiveness. And there's a big probability that people can forget to return for a follow-up shot. We can minimize that probability. This app will automatically process to schedule the patient for the 2nd vaccination so there is a less likelihood of user error. The reminder system (as notification feature) that will remind them in their phone when they have appointment that day.
How we built it
I built all prototypes using Figma.
Challenges we ran into
Get as much data as possible about Covid-19 vaccine plus filtering the information from rumors, stigma, and other forms of disinformation.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
QR Code Feature for storing all personal data + health condition, so user don't need to wait for a long queue of administrative things.
Digital Registration Form checking if user is qualified of COVID-19 vaccine and which vaccine suits best.
Scheduling Feature based on date, vaccine availability, and the nearby hospital.
Appointment History to track all data of patients, this data can be used for better efficiency of mass-vaccination in the future.
Progress Bar for vaccine & reward badge for completion
Reminder Notification to remind the patients every time they have appointment so they don't miss it.
Vaccine Articles - Ensure the user can get the accurate information from a verified source.
Emergency Button - In case there are side effects after vaccination.
What we learned
Since I attend this hackaton alone, I really need time management skill to design everything from scratch. I also researched and learned a lot about the facts of COVID-19 Vaccine; Some coronavirus vaccines may work better in certain populations than others. And there may be one vaccine that seems to work better in the elderly than in younger populations. Alternatively, one may work better in children than it works in the elderly. Research suggests, the coronavirus vaccine will likely require 2 shots to be effective in which taken 21 days apart for Pfizer's vaccine and 28 days apart for Moderna's remedy.
What's next for Cure
Build the application and propose this solution to our government. I hope the Cure app could be implemented in real life and be a solution for people to get COVID-19 vaccine effectively, efficiently, and safely.
