10,774 students submitted their prototype ideas to get a chance to solve key health, hygiene and cleanliness issues on a national stage. 200 ideas out of the submitted 10,774 were selected and were assigned a mentor who helped the students carry out their submitted idea. After 6 mentorship classes, all 200 students who were selected had to present their apps and were interviewed. Out of the 200 students, 50 students were selected for a 50,000rs scholarship and an opportunity to meet Amitabh Bhachchan. The selected applications were posted on playstore and are available for download right now.
The idea submitted by Pranay Sinha Karpuram for this competition is Leukemia Drug Tracker. Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia is the most common type of blood cancer seen in children. After months of intensive chemotherapy, children are started on maintenance therapy with tablets. They need to take these medications for 2 to 3 years. During this period the blood counts have to be monitored closely. Leukemia Drug Tracker App provides a user friendly interface which allows you to easily enter blood counts which are directly sent to the doctor. This allows the progress to be monitored remotely by both the user and the doctor and by establishing a direct communication between it reduces any chance of flaw in communication.
