So where do you start?

Today’s smartphone cameras give everyone the tools to take diagnostic-quality images and share them in seconds. This offers huge potential for speeding up care. But there’s a lot to think about before you can take the first steps in your practice:

  • Where can iPhone photography fit into the doctor/patient relationship?
  • What makes a useful medical photograph (and what do your patients need to know)?
  • What processes will need to be adapted?

iPhone Medical Photography tells you exactly what you need to know to get started.

Imagine if you could see the problem without seeing the patient. How much faster could you deal with the query? Skin conditions, wound treatment follow-up, joint movement following surgery and more – all can be seen just as well in a good quality photo or video as they can be face-to-face.

Allocate time to review images and queries sent in by patients, and you can triage cases according to need. Simple situations can be dealt with in moments. Your time is freed up, allowing you to timetable more appointments for those people who really need them. You can charge a low review fee and still see your per hour revenue increase, because of the speed you can process each case. In turn, patients get answers fast, worry less and pay less, and get a better value service overall.

Combining easy-to-understand explanations and simple practical tips, iPhone Medical Photography shows how smartphone medical photos can help speed up care, cut costs, and reduce the need for face-to-face time with patients.
