Utilizing digital advancements, an integrated Flask-based platform has been engineered to centralize personal health records and facilitate informed healthcare decisions. The platform utilizes a Random Forest model-based symptom checker and an OpenAI API-powered chatbot for preliminary disease diagnosis and integrates Google Maps API to recommend proximal hospitals based on user location. Additionally, it contains a comprehensive user profile encompassing general information, medical history, and allergies. The system includes a medicine reminder feature for medication adherence. This innovative amalgamation of technology and healthcare fosters a user-centric approach to personal health management.
