PicSafe version 2.5 has just hit the App Store and Google Play. Among other things, you can now send via text message and WhatsApp; there is a new consent screen with video, and we now have DIY enterprise account management.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
