Nowadays health is the most important thing in our life, and people put a lot of effort into avoiding or treating illnesses. Doctors are the ones who can help the most but some people prefer not to go that route, either because of financial problems, or bad experiences in the past.
During this thesis I will present a group project work in which we created a mobile phone application for patients who have a high risk of cardiovascular diseases or they are already suffering from these illnesses. We want to combine the proper medical knowledge with modern information technology to help our users. I took part in the backend developing team and I made a knowledge-base to store interesting articles, a dynamic quiz for testing knowledge, and a questionnaire for getting data from our users.
During this semester I learnt many new things and gathered a lot of experience in team working and developing applications which was really interesting and enjoyable. It is also very pleasing to be able to help people with my work and I really hope that this application will have a huge user base and our work will help them.
