Clear description of the target social issue in one paragraph of 100-200 words
The social issue we are focusing on is that the healthcare sector doesn’t have a program or database in which all the patient data is kept. This is an issue due to the fact that patients may go to another doctor or specialist and have to tell the doctor all his or her medical background; this causes lack of efficiency in the field or in an emergency room the process can be obsolete, where doctors might lose precious time that might save a patient. Also, if you are in another country or if you are unconscious without any company, this makes it really difficult to have a proper diagnosis due to the lack of communication because of the language or if you can’t speak unconscious; and again doctors or paramedics might lose precious time.
People when they go to the doctor might assume the risk of not knowing the name of the medicine they are taking or if they have a medical history that can be important for a diagnosis. People with low resources have too much on their plate and aren’t experts, so having a database can help improve the medical system for all people.
