Health Scan app is developed with medical emergencies in mind.
A user could input personal and medical information. This would then generate a medical QR code containing all the data.
Health Scan card :
Health Scan card contains a medical QR code which is very helpful during Emergency medical situations.
First responder/Doctors can easily scan the medical QR code and provide immediate medical help.
Health Scan card can help doctor to discover what allergies or medications the user is taking as well as other personal medical information thereby saving valuable time and providing better emergency care.
Important Features of Health Scan card :
1. Internet is not required to scan the medical QR code therefore it is very
beneficial in Rural Areas as well as on roads where there is no/limited
Internet facility available.
2. Medical QR code generated by health Scan app does not have any expiry.
Health Scan card can also be beneficial for Diabetic,Heart Patient and people with disabilities like : Blind, Autistic, Mentally/Physically challenged people.
I have developed this app under the guidance of Dr. Shishir Joshi and Microsoft R&D Head.
Road Accidents Statistics :
A Report on Road Accidents in India 2016, published by Transport Research wing under Ministry of Road Transport & Highways, Government of India, has revealed that at least 4,80,652 accidents in 2016, leading to 1,50,785 deaths. The number suggests that at least 413 people died everyday in 1,317 road accidents. Further breaking down the statistics, the data reveals that at least 17 deaths occurred in road accidents every hour.
Over 1,37,000 people were killed in road accidents in 2013 alone, that is more than the number of people killed in all our wars put together.
“India is no. 1 in road crash deaths and injuries in the world.”
Global Status Report on Road Safety, 2015 by World Health Organization.
And over 80% of these victims do not get emergency care in the first hour following the accident.
And this Results in : Preventable injuries leads to death.
50% of lives can be saved if people get basic care on time.
