Our team gets excited when we apply latest technology in fields such as AI and Machine Learning to help our community. We have in the past enjoyed providing community service and volunteering for important organizations. However, due to the recent COVID-19 pandemic, we have been unable to do this to a certain degree - despite more people needing help than ever. These people not only include patients of the novel Coronavirus, but also patients that require medications but are unable to receive them due to severe risks and issues with the pandemic on their demographic. That is why we have taken steps to create a new organization designed specifically for this problem.
What it does
The website allows patients to login and request a delivery from the pharmacy for their prescriptions. Pharmacies can also login and keep track of their requested deliveries, and message the patient for confirmation of their identity.
Once our project is complete and scaled, users will be able create an account on our community app or website to order a prescribed drug from a local pharmacy. The app will then contact volunteers/workers (based on pharmaceutical clients' preference) through their accounts in order to request a delivery. We hope that in the future, we will be able to contact local pharmacies and institute this service throughout the country.
Challenges we ran into
We currently are facing challenges in terms of executing the plan on a larger scale and would appreciate any help.
