Mobile Prescription

Medical prescriptions are confusing for the most part. At the same time keeping track of the medicine/drugs someone has to take is a bit troublesome (before/after lunch; morning/evening etc.).

Develop a mobile app which notify the patient when it is time to take his medicine/drugs or help him order new ones when he finishes the current ones. The application will notify if there is a conflict between the medicine he is taking or between known allergies a patient might have.

Prescription medicine can also be taken but only with the doctors consent (implement a cryptographic module in the application to handle this feature).

Semantic Organic Medicine

An organic drug store needs a way to organize its medicinal plant collection and sort it depending on the disease/medical condition it could be recommended for. A disease/medical condition has certain symptoms (some diseases/medical conditions have similar symptoms) and medicinal plants treat certain diseases/medical conditions (sometimes the medicinal plants only treat a limited number of symptoms). Thus the drug store needs a quick way of searching through its database and finding the best organic plant for a certain disease/medical condition.

Notice that certain symptoms might be more important than others depending on how the patient describes them.

Bonus: use semantic web technologies.

Patient Eye Tracking Interface

Due to the large number of patients with various motor and speech impediments or paralysis, the medical staff has developed a system that helps them communicate with these kinds of patients. The system is based on the movement of a patient’s eyes and eyelids. For example, the medical staff wants to determine where the pain is on a patient’s body. The patients using eye or eyelid movement can answer a series of questions addressed by the medical staff.
