“Hemophilia, appearing mostly in men, is a hereditary condition characterized by proneness to bleeding. Suffers lack normal amounts of blood platelet, a substance in blood that enables clotting. Bleeding generally occurs at joints and muscles, under the skin and within organs. Injecting fresh blood or using coagulants can stop the bleeding. Lack of treatment leads to muscle atrophy, which can lead to disability or even death. However, if treatment is timely and effective, patients can function quite normally.
Statistics show that hemophilia occurs in about one out of every 10,000 people. Presently, there are about 400,000 hemophiliacs in the world, one-fourth, or about 100,000 of whom, are in China.”

This conceptual mobile app for the international students in the U.S. and the people in China who have hemophilia called Hemolog, which is built with the intent of assisting people suffering from hemophilia. Hemophilia is a group of hereditary genetic disorders that impairs the body’s ability to control blood clotting, which stops bleeding when a blood vessel is broken. Hemolog’s purpose is to combine multiple functionalities relating to healthcare. These functions include locating hospitals within a map, organizing doctor contacts and ease of communication for reaching appropriate medical providers. Additionally, Hemolog enables mobile medical documentation, tracking health data, and simplified payment options for medical bills. The mission of Hemolog is to provide an assistive mobile platform that enhances quality healthcare and communication between patient and medical provider.
