UBM Medica Announces PhotoClinic Mobile App for iPhone and iPad
Date:11/15/2010

NORWALK, Conn., Nov. 15, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- UBM Medica announced today that it has launched PhotoClinic Mobile, an iPhone and iPad application which enhances physicians' clinical proficiency through easy-to-find diagnoses and treatments.

Drawing from the popular DermClinic and PhotoClinic sections found on ConsultantLive.com, this application features images, submitted by primary care clinicians, all specially selected by the Consultant editorial staff for both their teaching value and seasonality. PhotoClinic Mobile is an easy-to-use tool intended to help physicians diagnose and treat their patients, right at the point-of-care.

Ninety-four percent of physicians are using smartphones to communicate, manage workflow, and access medical information, according to a report from Spyglass Consulting Group (2010 "Spyglass: Physician smartphone usage on the rise, along with concerns").  The study also displayed trends on how physicians are progressively adopting mobile communications at point-of-care to improve collaboration, productivity, patient care, and safety.

"Physicians are becoming increasingly dependent on mobile devices, such as the iPhone," says UBM Medica CEO, US, Sally Shankland.  "With this app, UBM Medica continues to provide innovative solutions that enable physicians to increase their effectiveness, both at the point of care and beyond."

With PhotoClinic Mobile, users are able to:

  • Search the image database by diagnosis, symptoms, treatment, key words, anatomy, and image type (clinical photo, x-ray, MRI, CT scan)
  • Browse through the images library.
  • Submit their own photos to the editors at ConsultantLive
  • Send photos and diagnoses to colleagues.

To download the application, also available for iTouch and iPad, visit: http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/photoclinic-mobile/id398992941?mt=8 .
