My name is Audrey Zheng and this is my pitch.
My business idea is a phone app that will provide medical assistance by giving correct procedures for a variety of medical emergencies.
MedAZ is a phone app where users can receive answers on how to give medical aid in any situation- wherever you are, without the need of wifi or data.
MedAZ is primarily targeted to youth, with the idea in mind that many times, youth are unsure of how to deal with medical situations, and end up waiting for adult help.
Most people are willing to help, if they know how to. MedAZ will be a simple easy-to-use phone app where youth can share situations in the form of a message, call or video, get quick procedures including important contacts such as 911, and how to deal with various medical situations.
Let’s take a look at how MedAZ will work. [Scenario 1] Now, many youth’s first response in this situation is to panic and reach for their phone. They panic, because they don’t know what’s going on or how to help, and they reach for their phone for reassurance.
With MedAZ, youth can simply capture a picture, video or message to upload and immediately receive possible medical issues and procedures, and follow a simple flow chart.
Users are also able to share experiences and receive advice from medical health professionals online, in an comfortable, accessible space
The goal for MedAZ is to help youth become more independent in stressful situations, in an accessible form which youth are comfortable in using---their phone. As well as encourage and help youth to become more knowledgeable in the first aid and medical field, and create a positive community where everyone is ready to help one another.
You can help!
