Millennium Fellowship Project: HealthWithAClick
My project is a web application that helps connect doctors with patients at the click of a button at any time of any day. The main motivation behind this project was to help ease the congestion in hospitals especially during the Covid-19 pandemic. This platform will have qualified doctors who would be ready to avail themselves for consultation or even onsite treatment from the patient’s address. It will also work in collaboration with hospitals in case a patient has to go to hospital and with pharmacists who can offer pickup or delivery services of prescribed medicine to patients. This way not only would access to proper medical care be improved but also more employment opportunities are created.
As of this month, November 2021, my web application is almost complete. I just need to create a database for it and launch it in the internet. I also need to reach out to my friends and family so that I can create awareness about my platform. I am also planning to community map by reaching out to my school’s clinic so as to get the first professional doctors from there.
