This is the patient information portal
Initial page on website
Log in two ways: enter patient data or check your own information
This is the portal where you can book doctors appointments
This is where you can see your prescriptions.
One of our teammates is from Turkey, where they have a government-made centralized health information system that stores patient data and schedules doctors appointments that one can only access with their ID number. This system is incredibly useful, especially during COVID. We wanted to implement this idea in the USA with added features to make the system much more secure.
What it does
ViaCloud compiles all healthcare information related to a person under a single account which can be modified by healthcare providers. Individuals can access their data anytime, anywhere which saves time and requires less paperwork. Others can see an individual's health data (including information such as allergies, vaccinations and prescriptions) if an individual chooses to share their public key. The entire system is stored and encrypted on the blockchain, which prevents patient data from being compromised.
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
Our biggest challenge was to open Eclipse.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We are proud that we came up with an idea that, when implemented correctly, could have a significant benefit on society.
What we learned
We learned how to work collaboratively and be resilient to new challenges. We also learned that it can be quite difficult to divide large problems into manageable chunks.
What's next for VieCloud - The Unified Health Information System
We will find a method to integrate the blockchain code to our back-end system, which we attempted to do during the hackathon. We will also refine our user interface.
