The Forge Announces the The iOS "De-Identifier app" Camera App for Doctors and Patients

An iOS camera app that will automatically remove all identifying features from clinical photos.

Online PR News – 24-May-2015 – May 22/CA – San Francisco, CA -- May 22, 2015 – The iOS "De-Identifier app" Team, David Grundy, MD, Paul Grundy and Bobby Gayol, have just launched an Indiegogo campaign to fund the development of a powerful new smartphone camera application for use by medical professionals. Think of it as “the Snapchat for doctors” and a unique new camera app for the iPhone that will help both doctors and their patients in myriad ways!.

This app will address important issues in patient confidentiality and data security.
It’s going to be a very valuable tool for the medical field.

The use of smartphone imagery has had a powerfully transformative effect on the practice of medicine, but has also introduced many inevitable new risks:

• Patient confidentiality
• Image Security
• Policy violation
• Security of the cloud

The "De-ID", the De-Identifier app, can prevent you or another medical professional from accidentally transmitting a patient's confidential information in a smart phone picture. Without any effort, avoid all the ethical and legal problems of someone forwarding a photo you sent which had too much identifying information.

Please help The Forge build the De-ID iOS camera app that will AUTOMATICALLY find and remove all identifying portions of clinical photos!

With this extremely intuitive and simple to operate app on your phone, it will become simply impossible to take and transmit "unsafe,” privacy compromising clinical photos.
