As New Zealand starts to move gradually out of it’s Covid-19 lockdown, GP’s are facing a different environment.
The number of remote or in-home consultations are increasing dramatically.
While the MedImage app is built to work inside a practice, it also works on-the-road, and is a useful companion for in-home consultations, as the photos get sent directly back to the Practice Management System, and are not kept on the phone.
In this situation it could be used by a doctor / remote nurse pairing, where a doctor is at the practice and a nurse is on-site taking the photo. The doctor could give a live diagnosis based off the photo sent through.
Our parent organisation, AtomJump, have also released a fully remote solution, which allows patients to take their own photos and share them on a single chat session. This lets a doctor and patient have a chat-based discussion, where a patient can upload a photo of themselves, or can go to a video link.
- Chat on a unique and private one-time forum for a patient
- Upload photos
- Video conference
- Save photos via your desktop browser to your desktop
- Export messages to an Excel file
- No app downloads or sign-ups needed
- The service is free of charge
Please note: this is a Beta service. Please let us know what you think.
In the future we would also like to add the capability to export any photos /discussion directly into your MedImage Server, so that they appear in e.g. your MedTech system.
Note: If you’re an existing customer, but you’re not doing in-home consultations, we’re happy to extend a payment holiday to your practice.
