TextMD is an interactive server accessible through SMS that can diagnose a patient's condition in real time and direct a patient to an emergency service if needed. It can be used to help improve dissemination of health care knowledge of third world countries, such as Bangladesh.

How It Works

TextMD uses Twilio as a relay to send text messages. It runs a local server using Flask that is tunneled to public access using ngrok. TextMD uses the Infermedica API to diagnose the possible conditions afflicting the user based on their stated symptoms, gender, and age. If the user requests immediate help, TextMD directs a patient to a local emergency service telephone number.

TextMD also storers the diagnosed diseases matched to their geographical location for later use by government agencies.
