GPS Mobile App to Help Identify Community Heathcare Options (for travellers or new residents)

By: Brian Sutherland

It is often difficult to find healthcare in a new part of Canada. The application, which currently exists in a live prototype form, employs a smartphone’s GPS, camera and compass to generate health care options for a user’s current surroundings. The application has a list view, a map view (with Show Me The Way directions), and an augmented reality view. It currently catalogues the hospital infrastructures of BC, ON and PQ. Additional provinces, facility types, hours and a photo to add.
