Ideas for a new health app

Warfarin monitoring app

Patient oriented app for managing Warfarin dosing and would be linked to their local anticoagulation clinic/GP practice (whoever prescribes/monitors).

Here's how I envisage the app will work - patient attends blood-taking clinic, INR results processed later and sent to either the warfarin prescriber or an automated computer system. Message is then sent to the app and by text and email (just to be sure) of the next dose. The app would also include information on next test date (with automatic reminders) and basic clinical information (e.g. had DVT, on Warfarin until certain date and target INR) that could be shown if patient ends up in hospital.

Could be called myINR, iNR, both probably already copyrighted though... have checked android market and see nothing similar
