Project Name - Care Health
Aakesh Kunwar(Kathmandu Bernhardt College)
The concept is to gather the information about the hospitals, clinics and pharmacies in Kathmandu valley like where is this hospital or clinic or pharmacy located, its contact number, its ambulance service number, Schedule of the doctors, health events of the organizations, free medical plans of the hospitals, its charges (bed charge, OPD charge etc.), list of the specialists, online consulting with doctors with extra money, taking online appointment with the doctor. It will also include top news stories, press release and articles related to health.
Using this app one can not only gets all the information related to hospitals , clinics, pharmacies and doctors but also some of the events going to be happen like free eye checkup, blood donation programs etc. The online appointment with the doctors will save the time. Some of the important health tips from the doctors will help us to live our life more healthily. The map of the hospitals and clinics will make users easy to find that hospital or clinics.
This application will target all the people of the city who uses smart phones. Everyone needs to know the information about Hospitals, pharmacies, available Doctors, frequent plans related to health like free medical checkup, blood donation programs etc .
When I explain my concept to few of my teachers, seniors and friends I got very positive responses and also came to know that they are expecting me to add some features like map of the hospitals and pharmacies which I have decided to add in my application after their advices. Their advice to keep the telephone number of each and every doctors might not be possible but if I got appropriate information related to that I will definitely work on that too.
This project is aimed to make people informative about the Hospitals , private clinic and pharmacies (with map) along with the treatment facilities and cost of hospitals and private clinics. Not only this but also it will aware the people about diseases as well as the health events that is going to be held. I don’t know whether there is such type of application available or not but I can surely say that there is no online appointment and online consulting with the Doctors which is the powerful factor of my application. Moreover I will be adding new features according to the feedback.
The other facto of this app is that it will include different news , articles related to health, hospitals & clinics and also consist some health tips from Doctors which is very much essential for our day to day life.
Every person needs to know which hospitals provide what kind of treatment facilities. They also need to know about their Doctors. If emergency then they need to call the ambulance service which will be included in my application. There are many pharmacies in our city so s/he can search a nearby pharmacies through this app to buy medicine.
Every person sometimes have to visit hospital just to take appointment. Using this app, they can take online appointment which will save their valuable time.
