We are looking for an app that makes use of an alarm function and nfc tags to support our staff to reduce the risk of missing giving the people we support medication.
The app must run on Windows phones (8 and above), if it can also be made available for Android and iOS that would be a nice to have and can be costed separately.
The aim is to have a system where up to four reminders can be set with a title (this could use the phones alarm function) based around the times when our staff need to provide medication. When the alarm sounds we would like the only way to silence it to be via an NFC tag that will be located next to the medication cabinet. Alarms will need to be set to repeat on a regular basis, generally daily, and to sound an audible alert even if the phone is set to silent. If possible a visual alert would be beneficial, for example to make the flash blink, this is a nice to have so could be costed separately.
Success will be an app that meets the key functions required above, if more information is needed that is fine.
The app will help us to reduce the risk of the people we support not receiving their medication when required. For people with learning disabilities and autism missing their medication can have serious results both for the short and long term health. We currently support over 2,500 people many of whom receive medication so this work will positively impact the lives of a lot of people.
Please include a fixed cost to provide the work including creating the app, time for testing, any minor amendments to meet the requirement and an expected duration for the work (a delivery date).
Thank you for taking the time to read this and I hope there is enough information for you to be interested in completing the work.
