Domain targeted - Healthcare The increase in patients has led to the decrease in the relative number of doctors per patient which results in a vicious cycle where ignored or delayed diagnostics of an ailment makes the patient more dependent on doctor’s check-up. Some also cannot afford to visit a doctor. Also since the time of COVID19 outbreak, it’s not safe for people to visit hospitals for consulting the doctor as many hospitals have COVID19 patients being treated in them.

Challenges we ran into
1) Firstly, as health is one of the most opted topic in hackathon, we had to do a lot of research in order a produce a project that was unique in itself. 2) Using various API's and transforming it as per our need was one of a challenge that we faced. 3) Since most of our project is in the form of website, there exist some features that would be inconvinient for the user to use on website. So to resolve this we had to make an app for the same. 4) Integrating the ChatBot in our project and training it according to the track that we had chosen was tough, as we were not trained to do this. 5) Also the ChatBot connects us to another feature that tells the user as to what he/she should do and not when facing the health issue they specified to the the bot. It was difficult to connect the Bot and the API and bind them together.
