imito, the clinical photo app and the Swiss eHealth Summit 2017

Review 2016. Nine Start-Ups line up in front of a critical Swiss eHealth Summit  jury to perform the first Start-up Slam Switzerland. The five minutes presentation of imito AG convinced the jury to honor Chrysanth Sulzberger and Manuel Studer with the 1st place and an exclusive presentation slot in 2017 for their radically simplified clinical collaboration with their clinical photo app. The hashtags #imitorocks and #unleashed symbolize the power of that moment and the continous development of thoughtful solutions for the clinical sector.

The highlight of the two days summit was the duo presentation with Mischa Richli, clinical project manager from the HFR Fribourg Hôpital Cantonal and imito’s CEO Chrysanth Sulzberger.

Mischa Richli presented with his «Feedback from the field» speech the HFR’s engagement for the measurement of wound surfaces as a Swiss first mover with an iPhone prototype in 2011. After challenges and errors the clinical collaboration with imito AG from 2016 onwards provided the desired clinical photo documentation by their clinical photo app in BYOD format for the use in transversal care units and staff. Finally the solution imitoCam was officially implemented in the front-end while imitoConnect delivered the needed data services in the back-end. The succesful deployment includes Wound Care and Diabetology in nursing as well as Orthopedic and Vascular in surgery.

Chrysanth Sulzberger reinforced the impact among the spectators with his «one year later» presentation, a summary of 12 inspirational months since the Start-up Slam 2016. He emphasized the milestones reached using the imitoCam:

  • a clinical collaboration with the clinical photo app in a class of its own
  • a validated and standardized solution
  • enterprise mobility experience
  • lean and efficient integration and deployment
  • development of an imaging-tool to a visual collaboration platform
  • 80% of Swiss University Hospitals already using the imitoCam
