The system allows to check INR values of patients through internet automatically. The patient receives the dose weekly, biweekly or monthly medication to take. This implies the public health saving of thousands of dollars in transfer of patients to medical centers or colleges to remote rural centers.

The International Normalized Ratio (INR) is a way to standardize the values obtained through the prothrombin time. It is mainly used to monitor patients with oral anticoagulant therapy (OAT).
The Android app from the mobile phone will ask the user their current INR value (after being measured with a measuring clotting). This value will be sent via Internet or via SMS to a server, where the user's phone number must be pre-registered.
The server side is responsible for looking at the history of previous patient data. Through these data, the INR value received and medical algorithms will give a guideline in making the drug over a period for a patient.
The server will send the results online or by SMS (depending on the data received) to the patient's mobile phone.
