Design and implementation of mobile application for blood donors
Blood donation is an act of humanity and solidarity towards fellow human be-ings, since it can only be donated by volunteer donors
In Greece, the demand for blood persists at an elevated level, despite con-certed endeavors aimed at augmenting the participation of voluntary blood donors
Informing citizens about the simplicity and safety of the blood donation pro-cess, as well as instilling a culture of voluntary contribution, play pivotal roles in establishing a sustainable and secure blood supply to meet the demands.
Concurrently, the development of technology and the use of smartphones that have made noteworthy advances in the M-Health sector can contribute to the effort of directly connecting blood donors with the blood donation process.
This dissertation focuses on the design and implementation of a mobile appli-cation for blood donors on smart devices for volunteer blood donors, attempt-ing to facilitate the process of blood donation through the utilization of mobile devices. This is achieved by providing access to information pertaining to blood donation, locating nearby blood donation centers, and issuing reminders for the subsequent blood donation appointment.
The development of the application was based on the requirements of an in-dicative sample of blood donors, following an interview and analysis of the resulting data. Subsequently, the application was piloted and evaluated by potential future users, the results of which showed that it is an organized tool for blood donors which, if improved, can become an integral tool for volun-teers, facilitating both themselves and the blood donation process.
