Solution

My idea proposes a technology of USB pendrive to digitize all medical documents like prescriptions, bills, medical reports, X-rays, Scans etc. The care taker just has to ensure to take the digiband while taking the patient to hospital, it will also contain historic medical record of the patient which is useful for the doctor as well in terms of treatment. The hospital or doctors updates the information into it, the device can be encrypted for security with cloud back up in case of loss of device. Even if the care taker changes the new care taker can just plug the device in a PC or smartphone and get all the information using an interactive user interface. Say for example medicine times and the type of medicine to be given. It will also manage all the expense bills for the caretaker, later while claiming medical insurance it will help the caretaker to just submit all the bills directly from the device as an attachment. It also possible to take printout of any document whenever required. The digiband will have a portable OS of its own which allows plug and play functionality

Describe a caregiver situation that you were/are involved in.

I was involved in care taking of various individuals from humans to pets.

Explain the caregiver problem that resulted for you and/or other caregiver(s).

I see that care takers have a hard time figuring out the correct medicine seeing a lot of prescriptions, when they take the patient to hospital they have to hunt down all necessary documents like X-rays, scans, medical reports. It is also difficult for caretakers to organize medical expense bills which is mandatory for medical insurance claims. Currently everything is on paper that makes the process difficult and a waste of paper.

Describe your caregiver solution that would provide assistance or relief to the problem of the caregiver.

My solution proposes a technology of USB pendrive which the patient can wear to digitize all medical documents like prescriptions, bills, medical reports, X-rays, Scans etc. The care taker just has to ensure to take the digiband while taking the patient to hospital instead of carrying bulk documents.
