MetadataShow full item record
There’s little or no time spent by doctors to remind patients about their medication on a timely basis, and due to busy schedules of some patients it’s easy to forget to have or take their prescribed medication on time. This creates a weakness especially on the patient side. The study of this report was intended to develop a cancer patient medication intake monitoring and reminder app, to remind patients of their prescribed medication plans as set by the assigned doctors, ask for immediate assistance in case of emergencies and also to provide a consistent communication between the doctor and patient. Data collection techniques were used to gather information using forms, questionnaires, observation and interviews that were issued out to a population sample of doctors, patients and their caretakers. From The findings there was a need for a system to help remind patients of their medication time promptly, this would also reduce the burden on their caretakers to spare some time for themselves. The findings also revealed the system requirements such real time alerts or alarms, patient and doctor data management are needed to develop the system. The output from this project is a fully functioning cancer patient medication intake monitoring and reminder Application to be used by the doctors and patients.
