App lets you share cases securely, learn from others
from the AAP Division of Quality
Physicians, other medical professionals and medical students can share and discuss
medical images and clinical cases using a free app called MedShr.
ECGs, scans, X-rays, and patient photos and videos are among the images that can be
shared on the secure, private network. MedShr features an in-app patient consent form
and system for anonymizing images.
Users can set up a profile to designate their area of interest/specialty and follow
clinical cases they find interesting. They also can create a case, obtain consent
and start a discussion securely from their mobile device. Privacy settings of postings
can be controlled so they are sent just to colleagues or with health care professionals
around the world.
If you would like to share a first-hand experience using technology, such as software,
program, app, widget, etc., to improve patient care or practice management, email
submissions of 250 words or less to Cathleen Guch at email@example.com.
