In terms of health issues, it is always better to prevent than cure and technology is making that prevention easier than ever before. In this age of electronic information technology we get all the information we need right into our hand in just a few tap. Mobile and wireless technologies are benefiting millions of people around the world in every sector including health. But the medical system in our country is still running in an analog manner. Thereby, people face lots of problems while taking medical services. For example our medical reports are often lost, or we forget about our scheduled checkups. We don’t archive our medical states, so we cannot monitor our health or get the data when necessary. Such activities often cause serious health problems. In the other hand, patients like Diabetes, heart diseases, old-age etc. who need to monitor and analyze their health condition on a regular basis. They need to follow appropriate nutrition plan, regular exercise activities and maintain their medication properly. This motivated us to take-up a project on “Mobile Application for Personal Health Record and Management” which will target to achieve the expected. The project conceived from the requirements of real life. The project is implemented using Android platform. This innovation is tested from the real-time point of view and found very useful. The project already achieved an outstanding accolade in the ICT Carnival 2018 organized by the Daffodil Group. In future data analytics will be added to incorporate intelligence with the system.
