How can medical prescriptions be easier to manage?
Over half of all patients don't adhere to their prescribed treatment schedule: they forget a dosage, neglect a refill, or confuse medications. Poor medication compliance is expensive and can render treatments ineffective or dangerous.
Students developed the MedCloud app so patients can easily track their medication schedules. The MedCloud user inputs their prescription dosages, frequency, and the total prescribed amount as well as a schedule of each medication.
MedCloud user interface
MedCloud uses the input data to remind the user when they need to take their medication and of how much to take. The app uses the total prescribed amount input to notify the user when they need to refill their prescription.
Students used Google Cloud Messaging in the technology stack to handle the queuing and delivery of messages.
