Abstract


The adaptation of mobile application is supportive for the discharge patients in less amount of time. The use of mobile application enables physicians to detect the possible implications of treatment at an early stage. The study aims to provide a support and prevention application for kidney failure patients to monitor their diet, receive notifications for taking medicines, get a reminder of dialysis, and conduct easy communication between the doctors and patients. For this purpose, the study has supported the implementation and usage of Kidney Failure Care Application (KFCA). The software architecture of this application aids in the understanding of how the system would behave. The results have shown that the application has eased the communication with their respective doctors, and their diet was also monitored effectively. An average success rate of 80% was observed as a result of testing KFCA application.
