An app/sensor duo that dispenses medicine continuously, records biological results, and provides a visual graph of the data. This information, as well as the patient’s journaled feelings, are shared between patient and psychiatrist - creating a better understanding and resulting in more effective and personalized care.
The Problem:
This Application was designed with personal experience in mind. Those who struggle with Depression and other mental-health problems often find it difficult to receive proper treatment. This is caused by inconsistency in taking medications, following a treatment plan, and reporting accurate results to a health-care professional. It can be a frustrating experience for both patient and doctor. 
SERO is designed to better unite patients with their health-care professionals. A sensor/medicated patch gathers physiological data that is reported to both parties as well as dispensing prescribed amounts of medication to the patient on a regular basis. SERO also includes journaling features - a technique that greatly benefits depression patients - and creates a more accurate record of how the patient is responding to the medication. When it comes to meeting for sessions, the doctor already has the information they need and can get rightThis will result in more concentrated and effective care between patient and doctor.
