Everyone uses their phone to show pictures to other people. Whether it is some crazy person at Wal-Mart or something really cute that your kids did, the first thing people do is take a picture. Now you can use your phone to improve the use of imaging in managing your health.
The people at MIM Software originally developed the Mobile MIM app for physicians to use for diagnostic imaging. They have now developed a similar app for patients. The VueMe medical imaging app allows patients to acquire their personal images to be taken to specialists, or even to share with friends that also have the app.
From the MIM Software press release:
“When we first introduced Mobile MIM, we knew it would be a hit with the medical community,” said Mark Cain, MIM Software’s Chief Technology Officer. “But we also recognized that empowered patients would want to view and control their own medical data – that is why we created the VueMe App. The iOS platform has continued to thrive with amazing market penetration, and with VueMe, we continue to benefit from the outstanding quality and innovative technology offered on devices such as the iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch.”
One of the major debates over EHR/EMR has been the interface between different providers, apps like this eliminate that concern as the patient can simply carry it from one doctor to the next.
The VueMe mobile app is available on the App Store on iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch, as well as on iTunes.
