Energy Optimized Mobile Software for Rural Health Enhancement – Healthcare Applications
Amrita Mobile Health Solution [AMHS] focuses on two main aspects of healthcare, personal healthcare and primary healthcare. The personal healthcare aspect focuses on the following areas:
a) Consultational advice – the user will be provided with an interface in his mobile in which he can enter the readings of pressure and sugar level and it will be stored in the user’s database. If a similar pattern of information is entered for 3 or more days, then the mobile can show a message indicating whether to consult the doctor or whether his values are normal or not. Here the mobile will be acting as a knowledge base.
b) Reminders for medicine patterns – Alarms can be set on the time when the medicine has to be taken. It will display which medicine has to be taken and also its dosage.
c) Monitoring medication of elders – An UI can be created in which the user has to tap the button after he had taken a particular medicine. It can be set as on tapping the button the information that he had taken a particular medicine will be sent to the intended person and also the information will be stored in the user’s database.
