Calendula: medication management made easy
Calendula is an Android assistant for personal medication management, aimed at those who have trouble following their medication regimen, forget to take their drugs, or have complex schedules that are difficult to remember.
TRL 8: First commercial system
As a component of a larger solution
The Galician Public Health Authority (SERGAS) has adopted Calendula to be connected with its Electronic Prescription System, resulting in the extension of previous features from the open source version, to include: – Automatic download of the patient medication regime. – Access to the medication pickup calendar. – Automatic recommendation of the best dates to optimize the number of visits to pharmacy. – Acess to the anticoagulant dosing regime. The integration process has faced two key issues: interoperability and security. With regard to the first one, the adoption of the international standard HL7-FHIR (Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources) will smooth the way for an easy deployment in other healthcare systems. Regarding security, the OpenID Connect specification has been adopted, allowing Calendula to verify the identity of users based on an authentication performed by an authorization server provided by SERGAS.
