April 14, 2015 — DICOM Grid announced the release of “medical selfie”, a new feature available through its mobile optimized medical image management platform. Using the feature, patients and care providers can upload medical pictures taken on an iOS device and securely share them with physicians. 

The medical selfie feature facilitates real-time sharing of “visible light” imagery in a HIPAA-secure environment.  Commonly used in dermatology and wound care, visible light imagery can be assessed without special equipment. In addition to still pictures, patients are also able to share diagnostic imaging and related data. By creating a DICOM Grid account, all information that is uploaded and shared can be accessed and viewed by patients online. 

“As a physician who performs online patient consultations, tools like medical selfies help to streamline the telemedicine process,” commented Rourke Stay, M.D., founder of Lightbulb Radiology“From a workflow standpoint, having images and pictures sent directly to my worklist is great. These tools empower patients by enabling them to seamlessly transfer imaging data from their own iPhones into the hands of an expert consultant.”

DICOM Grid debuted the medical selfie at HIMSS 2015.
