A digital dermatoscope (also known as dermoscope or microscope) is an essential tool for providing patients with optimized patient care, high resolution imaging to better track any changes and promoting the early detection of skin cancer and other conditions. However, there are strict criteria and enhancements which allow a mobile dermatoscope to truly enhance a medical professional’s practice. This blog post will focus on some of these qualities while discussing their roles in imaging quality, convenience and interoperability.
In recent years, advanced teledermatology services have become the most popular form of telemedicine for patients, with a projected market value of $8.6 billion by 2024. With89% of healthcare leaders expecting the telemedicine industry to transform healthcare in the coming decade, it is important to examine exactly how the benefits of teledermatology are affecting the healthcare system. From there, upcoming challenges and future expectations can then be determined for future research.
We're excited to announce our partner in Italy, MedEA was on national television to talk about the benefits of their distributed technologies including DermEngine, our advanced dermatology platform for skin cancer screening and analytics!The CEO of MedEA, Vincenzo Telesca, appeared on TV Dec 29th on Uno Mattina, channel Rai 1 at 6:45 am CET. During the program, he presented how advanced teledermatology platforms such as DermEngine are revolutionizing the healthcare industry by providing affordable, effficient and advanced eTriage services around the world.
To celebrate the season of giving, MetaOptima held a giveaway from December 19th-21st for three pairs of MoleScopes. To enter, participants had to tag one friend in the comment section of any one of our posts for a chance to win big!
We’re excited to announce that MetaOptima is working alongside Pure Pharmacy to provide high quality skin checks at six of their locations in the Greater Vancouver Area. Studies show that one in seven Canadians will be diagnosed with skin cancer in their lifetime. Since the survival rate of melanoma is over 98% (but drops to 16% in later stages), it is essential to work together to promote early skin cancer detection and awareness to encourage the continued health of as many people as possible.
Last week, MetaOptima was proud to be one of nearly 50 organizations to sign a memorandum of understanding to establish the Cascadia Venture Acceleration Network! The basis of this partnership is for participants to work together in the support of inventors, researchers, and businesses in the areas of Life Sciences, Information Technology, and CleanTech industries across British Columbia, Washington State and Oregon.
It's that time of year again: the air is bustling with excitement as everyone gears up for the holidays. In the spirit of the giving season, MetaOptima is excited to announce that we will be giving away MoleScope devices to THREE lucky winners and one of their friends each!
"As wearables, sensors and data lakes become more common throughout the healthcare industry, analytics can offer a path to a more personalized and cost-effective care system." Advancements in Big Data processing tools, data mining and data organization are causing market research firms to predict huge gain in the predictive analytics market for healthcare.
There is a great need for medical professionals to adopt new, advanced technologies to combat the shortage of experts (such as dermatologists), incompatible documentation, analytics, and patient management systems, and continued use of physical paperwork and filing systems. Due to these rising concerns, four primary tools are rising in popularity to help benefit the practice of medical experts:
