Version 2 5

New Features

Feature text message
Added the ability to send via Text Message.

Quickly flicking an image to a colleague or peer outside of a doctors current hospital/clinic is standard practice. Now doctors can comply with privacy regulations while doing so.

Feature whatsapp
Added the ability to send via WhatsApp.

Many institutions (rightly or wrongly) are using WhatsApp to communicate internally. That is a bad idea if sending photos. PicSafe now allows you to keep using WhatsApp but do so securely.

Feature consent
Added a standalone consent screen.

Doctors can hand their phone to patients, and the patient can view a 20-second explainer video before giving consent. This streamlines to process and prevents doctors from having to repeat themselves.

Feature no data
Allow sending reports without patient data (with a warning).

Although we don't recommend it because the contents of a photo can often be used to identify a patient, this feature has been requested by many. It allows doctors to take advantage of PicSafe stripping the metadata from photos.

Feature enterprise
Allow the app to accept enterprise users.

We have added an "Enterprise" section in "My PicSafe" that allows a manager to purchase enterprise licenses, add/invite users, and generally manage their account. Enterprise users get all the benefits of PicSafe PRO.

Feature export
Added the ability to export photos from open report previews

For PicSafe PRO and Enterprise users only. This allows photos to be added to medical record systems. Previously one had to use Box or Dropbox for this.
