Butler University’s Computer Science Department has been tasked with developing an electronic medical record application for Barnabas Task and the College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences (COPHS). This application will be utilized by student volunteers, pharmacists, and physicians in their efforts to deliver medical care in the Dominican Republic. Specifically, this application will allow for the storage of patient medical histories and pharmaceutical information. As the application is being developed for the iPad, our team will use the Xcode IDE and the Swift programming language. In addition, information will initially be stored on the mobile backend server, Parse.
