THE CHALLENGE

The National Capital Poison Center (NCPC) is a non-profit gathering of keen specialists and contributors from all over the world that selflessly battles the overwhelming trend of all sorts of poisonings by tackling the issue in various ways (from common poison management across consumer industries to antidote research).

The organization lacked a proper online HQ and a dedicated app for a better (potentially, life-saving) reach to target users. This called for creating a public online info resource and a smooth-running app to back it up.

THE PROCESS

Our team was fast to structure, build, and fill up a new dedicated resource with useful information that should educate and even save the lives of hundreds of potential and very real poison victims in critical situations. The app reinforces these capabilities with an even more hands-on poisoning-related solution. 

In particular, in the course of the webPOISONCONTROL project, the dedicated EPAM team managed to develop:

  • Step 1
    A site and an app filled with an expanding database of poisonous substances that products from pharmaceutical supplements to your regular plants and foods at your home may hold.
  • Step 2
    Android and iOS applications with a pill identifier feature, smart recommendation engine, and barcode/UPC and geolocation scanning option to achieve the best user experience.
  • Step 3
    Three smooth-running, critically helpful web applications were created in the long run.

THE RESULTS

Ultimately, dramatically more lives will be saved from poisonings with the new app and site, making poison education, advising, and prompt reaction to critical incidents much more accessible for tons of smartphone owners and Internet users out there. webPOISONCONTROL is a highly available database and advising platform where, if in-built features and info don’t help, a real expert will help you handle a poisoning incident individually.
