Method and System for providing Distributed Blood Donor Discovery

Disclosed is a method and system for providing a real-time visualization of potential donors around a user in need of blood wherein the real-time visualization is depicted in an electronic map. The method and system also follows real-time movements of the users including donors as well as recipients of the blood. Figure 1 is illustrative of the method and system involved in providing real-time visualization of potential donors around a user in need of blood.

Figure 1 Referring to Figure 1, a user including donors as well as recipients employ a smart watch/biometric app to download an app in accordance with the method and system. On downloading the app, an onboarding process occurs. An associated physician may also join the app on a request of a user and add medical notes wherever appropriate. A network of users including donors and recipients are onboarded and on receiving a request from a donor, a secure HTTP request is sent to the server. Accordingly, the server monitors the movements of all the registered users for locating available donors near the recipient user for further notifying the user recipient in need of blood.

Figure 2 is illustrative of a method of notifying a user recipient of nearby potential donors based on blood type matching.

Figure 3 is illustrative of a high-level algorithm employed in identifying location of nearby potential donors on receiving a request.
