Title: System for alerting against adverse drug reaction
Author: Tang, Derek; Hui, Jack; Mclean, Roger; Wong, Simon
Abstract: In this short paper we outline a newly developed system for adverse drug reactions. The purpose of this system is to alert users when to take their medication and to supply information about the drugs such as conflicts with other medications. The design consists of two devices; a stationary device and a portable device. The stationary device updates information and refills the inventory of portable device. Several iterations of the design process were necessary to achieve the best results for the system. A software simulation of the design was used to test whether the functionality met the requirements and to develop the algorithm for testing drug interactions. After extensive testing of the limitations and restrictions to place on our design, the end result seems to be fairly promising and should achieve its goals with relative ease.
