Medical Instagram Lets Doctors Crack Difficult Cases Together
The Figure 1 photo-sharing app for healthcare professionals allows them to post images to the medical community and comment on them.
Figure 1 is a new photo sharing app for healthcare professionals that enables them to post images to the medical community and comment on them. The app provides a safe way to capture and share medical images in real-time, and doctors will be able to learn from others through the platform.
Co-founder Joshua Landy, MD says he developed Figure 1 because he wanted “a safe wayÂ to share medical images with the medical community, while protecting patients’ privacy.”
Healthcare professionals can upload and view high quality images of medical conditions with the Figure 1 medical community, add arrows, comments and tags to their pictures, and receive feedback from others in their field.
The app features simple image uploading, automatic face blocking, and the ability to remove identifying patient details with the swipe of a finger. Public, private or small group sharing can be selected for each image, and they can be saved for later in a Favorites folder. You can watch Figure 1’s introductory video below:
