Some typical problems we and our friends have experienced during last weeks:
- I feel fever. I am worried. What should I do?
- How to avoid being on hold while calling an ambulance?
- I am feeling isolated
- I worry about my friends and family
What 1AID app does
- Self-diagnostic questionnaire: Calm yourself or Call an ambulance
- Ambulance patient queue
- Share your well-being status + alert if ambulance called
- Patient’s profile can be shared with your doctor or ambulance
- Daily symptoms journal

Challenges we ran into
- Bringing actual value to the community is hard. We have started the project beginning of March and have iterated five times over the concept.
- Advertising the project requires time and energy. If you like the idea please like us and vote for the project.
- Even more challenging is to communicate remote-only because of the confinement. Moreover, we are a team in three different time zones.
- Technical details matter. We built our application to be localized for any language and region.
Accomplishments that we are proud of and what we learned
- We have received very positive feedback from different people
- Building a coherent team is a key to achieve something
What's next for 1AID
- First Prototype (May 2020)
- Pilot application (June 2020)
- 100,000 users (Fall 2020)
- Collaboration with medical services / government
- Ultimately: The most needed app during force majeure events (e.g. pandemics)
