MODICA Alternative

Modica

Dear MODICA User,

The makers of MODICA have announced they are "discontinuing support" for their mobile app and cloud storage. As of December 5, 2017, you will not be able to access your patient photos anymore. We have an alternative for you.

MODICA allowed you to capture and store patient photos in their secure cloud storage. PicSafe enables you to capture and send patient pictures to:

  1. Another doctor by attaching the encrypted photo (and accompanying consent) to an email.
  2. Various medical record systems, and
  3. Secure storage services like Box and Dropbox.

The third option here, basically, replicates MODICA. PicSafe allows you to capture patient photos securely and both Box and Dropbox have HIPAA compliant storage solutions where you can store the patient photos. Note, you'll need PicSafe PRO (normally €9 per month or €99 per year), but we have an exclusive deal for you. MODICA users get 50% off for the life of your subscription. It is only available if you sign up below and only available before December 5, 2017.

Please follow the PicSafe+Box or PicSafe+Dropbox instructions below to migrate your existing data from MODICA.

Kind regards,

Signature

Instructions for Migrating from MODICA to PicSafe + Box

Move your existing clinical photos to Box

  1. Log in to the MODICA portal.
  2. Tap on the Export option in the left menu.
  3. Tap on the Request new export button that appears in the dialogue. (If you are an administrator for your organization you can choose between exporting all data for your organization, or simply your own.) This might take a few minutes.
  4. Tap on the "Download export" button. A zip file will begin downloading. This might take a while to download.
  5. Once the file has downloaded, double tap on the file to unzip it.
  6. Go to Box.com and either Sign up or Log in. Note: Box says they apply the same security and privacy controls for all of its customers no matter what plan you are on. However, if you are required by law to comply with HIPAA, you must have a Box Enterprise or Box Elite account.
  7. Once you are in, you will see your files (if you have created a new account you will see none). Tap the New button in the top right and select Folder.
  8. Tap the Upload button in the top right and select the Folder option.
  9. In the resulting window, navigate to the modica-export folder where you unzipped the file earlier and tap the Upload button.

Note. You may see that the photos don't have a file extension. You will have to edit the name of the file to be able to open the file on your computer. To do this, right click on the file (e.g. "media-1") and append ".jpg" to the filename. It should not look like "media-1.jpeg".

You can now use Box to view your existing patient photos. You should be able to search for a patient's name in the Box search field at the top of the screen.

Set up PicSafe so new clinical photos can be uploaded to Box

  1. Purchase access to PicSafe PRO using the form above. (You should purchase here as it will give you 50% off for the first year.)
  2. Download the PicSafe app on your mobile phone. Search for "PicSafe" in the App Store or Google Play.
  3. View the introduction video and then complete the Sign up form.
  4. Open the email app on your phone. You will have been sent an email with a sign in link. Tap on it.
  5. Complete the introduction wizard and send a test "report".
  6. Tap the Settings button in the header.
  7. Tap the Box row.
  8. Tap the Link Box Account button and follow the prompts to sign in to Box.
  9. Back out of the Box screen and tap the Close button in the header of the settings screen.
  10. Take another photo and enter some dummy patient details.
  11. Scroll down to the Send to row and tap on it.
  12. Select Box from the list.
  13. Tap on the Send button at the bottom of the screen. The "report" you just created will be uploaded to Box.

All reports you upload to Box through PicSafe will appear in a "PicSafe" folder. Note, PicSafe uploads each report as a zip file. You will have to download it and unzip it to see the contents.
