Dhadkan


Dhadkan: A Mobile App for heart failure patients.

Abstract

Dhadkan is a Mobile App for remotely monitoring and providing medical assistance to the patients of heart failure. It collects patient's data (at any desired interval) on blood pressure, heart rate, and weight, and transmits it to the authorized caregiver (a doctor, nurse or paramedic) who is linked to the patient during the initial registration. It also provides a two-way communication between doctors and patients. In addition, patients have the freedom to send ECG report(s) to the doctor (if needed). Most importantly, it automatically sends a notification to both the doctor and the patient, in case(s) of any drastic changes in patient's data indicating a possibility of imminent heart failure. Thus, it not only eliminates the need for manual monitoring of each patient by the doctor but also helps them in proactively recommending precautionary action during the treatment period.

We strongly believe that this Mobile App will tremendously help in saving the precious lives of heart failure patients. It is available on Google Play.

Procedure for using Dhadkan Mobile App

First, the caregiver (a doctor, nurse or paramedic) has to register. Only then, the patients can register since they have to specify the number of a registered doctor/caregiver. Subsequently, the doctor and the patient immediately get connected.

In case, the patient is getting an error 'wrong mobile number' on entering doctor's number that means his doctor has not registered yet. The patient should therefore request his doctor to register on the Dhadkan App.
