App of the Day: Figure 1, A Photo Sharing App for Medical Professionals
Movable Science has launched Figure 1, a crowdscourced image library for healthcare professionals. Users can upload photos of medical conditions, x-rays and surgical procedures to help the community gain a greater understanding of how diseases manifest in actual patients. The photos are also shared with patients’ privacy in mind. Faces are automatically identified to be blurred out and additional editing tools are available to safeguard privacy. The app is available for free in iTunes with an Android version on the way.
