Medical professionals can then log in with a Yubikey OTP to locate eligible donors within a certain range of the hospital's geofence, and even provide directions.

StayAware

The key idea of StayAware is to allow to the final user to stay aware of “areas of interest”. What do we mean by “areas of interest”? An area the interes is any area that can provide insight to the user, for example, let's suppose that you are traveling to Bogota for business, as it might be your first time in the city you do not know what areas are safe or not. In that case StayAware would be the platform that would allow you to download those areas and will send you alerts if you are going in
