Using the feature, patients and care providers can upload medical pictures taken on an iOs device and securely share them with physicians.

What is a Selfie?

A selfie is defined as a self-portrait photograph, typically taken with a hand-held digital camera or camera phone. Most selfies are taken with a camera held at arm's length or pointed at a mirror, rather than by using a self-timer. Selfies are often shared on social networking services such as Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter.

"The ability to quickly send a picture is especially critical in trauma situations or frankly just to monitor ongoing care, " Morris Panner, CEO of DICOM Grid said.

"For example, patients or referring physicians can snap a shot of a burn, wound, or other injury and share it with a specialty provider in minutes. A physician can view the picture through our secure portal to determine a treatment plan and advise whether or not the issue requires an in-person visit."
