Tri-Valley freshman places third in Swalwell’s App Challenge | News
The app allows patients to track their appointments, as well as any notes to share with doctors during those appointments. It further offers an area to enter and track pain details, as well as side effects. This information can be sorted and filtered, and a button on the app allows patients to share the information with their doctors.
Doctors, on the other hand, can use the app to see a list of their patients, the symptoms they report, and the treatments they receive. Doctors can click a “predict” button, at which point the neural network model presents them with a list of symptoms based on suggested medications.
“I’m always impressed with how well our young coders work in the Congressional App Challenge, and this year is no different,” Swalwell said. “Protecting against online harassment, a fitness tracker for smartphone users’ eyes, and helping cancer patients record their own medical data – these are the kinds of apps that improve our community’s quality of life, real coding that cares. Congratulations to our winners.
