On file servers... That means the photos need to be stored manually and are often not accessible by other teams. The process of taking and storing these pictures is time-consuming.
Worst of all, reusing these valuable artifacts in order to analyze the healing process or to compile pictures for research or training is very inconvenient and takes a lot of time!
Before we founded our company, we analyzed the market. Around 500 European doctors took part in the survey. By 2015, more than half of them already indicated that they were using their smartphones for clinical photo documentation.
Are they putting their smartphone pictures to a data graveyard file server? What do you think?
Not really. Many hospital teams have already started using the available technology. They manage patient images with cloud services and share photos with non-data protection compliant messengers like WhatsApp.
We decided to investigate these loose ends and started to connect them with our apps. With imitoCam we have succeeded in making photo documentation much easier.
Our passion for radically simplifying everyday clinical tasks has already produced another intuitive tool with imitoScan.
Today we are very proud that our solutions are already being used in over a dozen hospitals (References and Partners) in Switzerland and Germany. Since 2016, our interdisciplinary team has learned a lot about the practical use of our apps by implementing these first projects successfully.
