A US based start-up in healthcare domain providing technology solutions
Company wants to use smart phones to improve collaboration between patients and doctors
Irregular and incorrect consumption of prescribed medicine
Maintain a manual record of medicines consumed
Patients miss the timely intake of their medicines
Difficulty in keeping track of the medicine consumption routine and sharing updates with the doctor or family
Developed an iPhone application which enables the patient to record their prescription details and generate notifications to consume medicines at the right time
Implemented a log book facilitating easy interface to add the medicine consumption data and also way to quickly synchronize the consumption with application database
The medicine consumption data is periodically synchronized with Kinvey, a cloud backend platform. The app then analyses the medicine consumption from the historical log on the server and recommends the next dosage level to the patient.
Core Plot Library was used to create the graphs and reports. The app interface enables the patient to invite family/doctor to view the graphical reports via a pass code.
