I, Naman Goyal, born on 2nd November1997, was raised in a common middle class family in Punjab, India. I have a team of four people including me named as "THE M3N"(M=MRITYUNJAYA, M=MOHD JAFAR, M=MOHIT, N=NAMAN). We created some projects, participated in many Competitions and we won prizes too, We're presently in 3rd Year Pursuing B.tech in Mechanical Engineering From CGC,LANDRAN . Our teachers induced the good qualities & values in us like helping others whenever possible. Our teachers always motivated us to think innovatively and examine every problem practically. We discovered that some doctors were not even able to see past medical record of the patient (losing the reports or some damage) and in India people wait in lines to get the appointments from the doctors. Also, My grandfather was not even able to manage their reports and medication lists.(some got lost too) The medicines were just collecting up and he was not knowing which ones to keep. Also he had to keep many apps in his smartphone. But no app was upto his needs. Some poor patients were not able to get the costly medicines. So i discussed with my team and we thought of an unused medicine donation system too which can be of some help to them. So, we thought of this idea to help old people, doctors & patients, poor people and all other people . Some people were not able to get the ambulance facility in case of emergency, so we thought of Emergency cab integration system too. Our teachers motivated us to save the mother earth too in whatever way possible& we discovered that a lot of paper is used & wasted in managing and creating the databases and reports of the patients. So, on digitalizing the whole system paper wastage can be reduced.
