Thought I’d post some screenshots of the app I’ve been working on. It seems to hang together but the next stage is to test it properly.
Another thing I need to do is prepare the web page for it, so I knocked up some ficticious records and this is what I came up with.
The main screen is split into two tabs. First, the meds you’re on currently:
and second, a list of all the meds you were *ever* on:
The way you add and remove meds from the list is using the “Add” dialog.
The neat thing about this dialog is that it allows you to part-type a name, then scurries off to find all matching meds in either the UK or the USA. I’ll probably add more countries as I go on – the EU is a prime candidate but right now, they’ll still be in sync with the UK. The drugs above, I haven’t a clue what any of them do, but they are all officially prescribed by our NHS.
This was actually surprisingly easy to write, but a real pita to search for the information. It is all publicly-available, but they don’t make it easy. One medical company quoted me thousands for just the UK data, and here I am bundling it into a piece of freeware. What good value 🤣
That’s basically it. It’s meant so that you can keep your own record on your own PC. But, if you do want to share the information with anybody, it has a PDF export function which produces the following kind-of thing.
So now I suppose I’d better start testing the bloody thing. Meh, tomorrow.
