Use Apimedic API to search and fetch medical symptom, list down the possible medical conditions/diagnosis, thereafter using web scraping to scrape information regarding their treatments and storing it in Firebase Realtime Database.

  1. API 1 to To fetch the symptoms by using Apimedic’s APIs.
  2. API 2 to list down the medical conditions for a given symptom.
  3. API 3 to fetch/display treatment options for given medical condition and store it in a database.
  4. API 5 take a text like “I’m having a back pain”, and extracts symptoms and based on those symptoms returns the medical conditions.

API 1 and API 2

Search and Fetch Symptom

On Searching a Symptom, URL for the JSON query to fetch all symptoms is created "" key.Token +"&format=json&language=en-gb", if apimedic database contains that particular symptom a query URL for its possible diagnosis is formed "[" + currObject.getString("ID") + "]&gender=male&year_of_birth=1997&token=" + key.Token + "&format=json&language=en-gb" and executed, after fetching JSON objects of the diagnosis, its information is displayed in a list.

Fetching Auth Token

As AuthToken is valid only for a period of time, it needs to be fetched every time on creation of main activity, key = new AccessToken(); A class named TokenKey has function named LoadToken for the specified purpose.

Working with Volley Library

Volley is an HTTP library that makes networking for Android apps easier and faster.
For fetching both symptoms and diagnosis , connection to API is made through volley.
RequestQueue queue = Volley.newRequestQueue(this);


Web Scraping for a given Diagnosis

For a particular Medical Condition, information regarding its available Treatments were scraped from "Knowledge Panel" on and "Glossary List" on using "JSOUP" Library Document doc = Jsoup.connect(URL).get();

Incase of scraping a Knowledge Panel, a google search like "Treatment for Common Cold" gives us a web page which has a info box containing "TREATMENT" tab which is automatically selected, 4 separate List containing HTML elements of same Class Name is maintained after inspecting each info box.

   Elements treatoptions ="div.hXYDxb");
   Elements subtype ="a.HZnEfd");
   Elements subdetails ="div.Rs3Epd");
   Elements counter ="div.Y6f3fc.HtP7nb");
image image image otherwise for Glossary List, based on ID of Treatment a simple query `("" + params[0].ID)` displays a web page from which information under title "Consequences and Treatment" is scraped
  treattab = doc.getElementsByTag("p");

                        for (Element element : treattab) {

                            if (element.previousElementSibling().text().equals("Consequences + Treatment")) {
                                treatObj.Info = element.text();

Use of Firebase Relatime Database

To store already fetched information of Treatments for a Disease, Firebase realtime database is used which is a schemaless database (NoSQL) in which the data is stored in JSON format. Any further query on same diagnosis will fetch data from database instead of scraping it from web.



A simple "String.contains(Substring)" functionality inside "if condition" during fetching/checking for symptoms can take a text like “I’m having a back pain”, and extracts symptoms and based on those symptoms returns the medical conditions.
