Caretaker Mobile App is a smartphone application developed for PBOL, Raahe, Finland to be integrated as part of their UbiPill project. UbiPill is a ubiquitous solution for reminding senior citizens to take pills on time.
The application is developed for the patient's caretaker to monitor patient's medication regularity. It runs a background serivce that periodically polls the UbiPill server and alerts the caretaker if any new alarm is received.
A local SQLite database is maintained within the phone to store past history and future schedule. The UI displays the information (one week at a time) in a 4x7 grid showing the actual state of the patients classic 4dose-7day pillbox. Missed medications summary can also be seen in a similar arrangement. The application also enables the caretaker to update new dose timings to the central
server if required.
A simple server-side PHP interface to respond to polling requests was also developed as a part of this project.
