OVERVIEW


The objective of this Vacicare project is to be a single platform which will function as an information provider and a reminder app for the parents. The application provides information like prices, who should avoid, side effects, etc. about a particular vaccine on a single platform. Vacicare helps parents get notified about the upcoming vaccine schedule and keeps tabs on the vaccine statuses.

This individual project work was a self-initiated project I worked on to learn more about the user experience field.

PROJECT STORY


Every year millions of children die from diseases that are preventable with readily available vaccines. Children who are immunized are protected from these dangerous diseases. After much research, I realized that there is no application in the market which provides vaccination information on one platform. This project was also inspired by my personal experience. One of my friend wasn’t able to pay his vaccination fees as he was completely uninformed about the vaccine prices.

CHALLENGE


The challenge in creating a uniform single platform which pertains to all kinds of parameters like age, region to be administered, etc. Vaccination strategies vary from region to region. Diseases endemic in a particular region might not even exist in other regions. Figuring out the categorization on which the entire vaccine schedule would depend. For example. Does vaccination depend on age? Does it depend on the region of the administration? How to create a single platform applicable to the masses.

Design problem

Lack of a single informational platform to provide esential information about vacincations.


RESEARCH

Literature Review

I referred to websites like Indian Academy of Pediatrics, Immunization facts and New Health Advisor in order to understand how immunization works in India. These websites gave me an idea about the schedule that is followed by doctors in India and vaccination drives.

NEXT STEPS

The next step for this mobile application is to integrate with the government organizations and NGOs and send notifications to users about various vaccination drives. It would also help people from financially unstable background to avail NGO opportunities of free vaccination drives. Till particular age-specific vaccines are administered but after that age, it’s difficult to keep a track of the schedule since other parameters like specific vaccines according to the environment, travel vaccines, vaccines according to the region, etc come into the picture.
