‘Instagram for doctors’



The Sacramento Bee reports on an  “Instagram for doctors.” Clinicians are using a novel app, called Figure 1, to upload photos, X-rays and other images of their patients’ maladies. “Like Facebook for health care, Figure 1 lets colleagues chime in with comments, questions and potential diagnoses.”

The mobile app, gives physicians and other healthcare providers instant access to unusual clinical cases seen by colleagues around the world. It’s part of a wave of social media and technology tools   changing how physicians  interact with patients and each other.
