Abstract

Healthcare has become one of India’s largest sectors. The growing concern is to find the right doctor and adhere to medication as prescribed. This brings the necessity for a medium where one could find doctors and book appointments for consultation. The proposed system provides a medium to discover doctors under certain specializations sorted based on user reviews, location, and availability and book appointments for consultation. The doctor will be able to fill in a form replacing the traditional paper prescriptions that can be accessed by the patient at any time. All the other medical reports can also be stored in this application which will be secured with a password known only to the patient. For editing a prescription given, two passwords: 1 - Patient, 1- Doctor will have to be used. In addition to password protection, storing the records through blockchain will ensure data integrity and provide more security. This system also provides a way to make patients get alerted for taking pills, for next reviews, tests to be taken, and surgery dates. These reminders can be very useful to elderly people to ensure medication adherence. This application also comes with some additional features like an emergency button, tapping which a call will be connected to the Doctor.
