While access to healthcare and hospitals remain very delicate in these times, we are developing a Health-oriented application that aids the user in maintaining and tracking his/her health conditions properly. The aim is to build a one-stop solution to all health-related needs of a person. It automates the process of manually maintaining records and provides basic diagnostic features.
What it does
The health application serves several purposes. To begin with, the app has a Disease Predictor, which takes symptoms as the user input and predicts the disease based on the same. The application also implements a Barcode Scanner that scans the barcodes on different medicines via the camera and displays the details about the same like usage, effectiveness and side effects. The app also lets the user input their daily medication including the number of doses and their timings. On adding, the app would send the user a notification at every dosage time.
How I built it
The app is completely based on python with android being used as the front end framework.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
The accuracy of the model and its ability to predict upto 41 diseases based upon the 132 different symptoms provides evidence of the advancements that can be made in this field.
What I learned
Being a machine learning enthusiast, i had never used android for deploying a front end to my application, hence android is the very main thing that i acquired from the project
What's next for The Virtual Medic
I plan to work on the UI of the application as well as plan to integrate a virtual video conferencing tool that can connect the user to nearest doctor for health consultation.
