In this paper, we propose an application where the user must register and login to the application to buy or sell the medicine. And the pharmacist also registers into the application to display the details of the pharmacy to the user. Once the user confirms the order the pharmacist should accept the order by checking the details of the medicines specified by the user like expiry date and quantity.

After a successful registration they can login by using valid username and password. After a successful login user can do some operations like view profile details, search and view the results and then perform some operations on the fetched data.


Administrator has to login with his valid username and password. After login successful he can do some operations such as view all user, their details, add documents with details, add images with details, List All documents and images uploaded, List all users search history ,view similar group data, view similar user searched keywords in cluster, view keyword and query details and fetched ratio, view ratio results for keywords, generate r* tree for searched keyword ( keyword as root and fetched results are sub roots), find IR tree for both images and documents( image or document category and its titles).


The conclusion states that a basic and up-to-date medical category application is designed to help the patients and caregivers to determine the nearest hospital with a specific specialization field. The hospital names along with their address and route are determined by Smart-phone GPS receiver. With the help of Google Map, the distance and route to each of the hospital is displayed for the user.
