I've built many chatbots for connecting people to locations. But I've not seen chatbots for tracking health measures. With the coronavirus pandemic going on, I wanted to create a chatbot that helped track a user's symptoms and help them find medical attention when needed.
What it does
It conducts daily checkups with the user and tells them how their health is and what symptoms they might have for common illnesses and other illnesses of interest.
How I built it
I built it with Python and Flask for the Telegram Messenger platform.
Challenges I ran into
I've never worked with buttons before, so getting them to work in such a short period of time was a challenge.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
Troubleshooting issues with connecting to Telegram and making the chatbot work.
What I learned
What's next for SymptoTracker
More diagnostic questions and connecting users to nearby clinics and hospitals if and when they need help.
