FAQ

Can we conduct a trial?

Other FAQs

Absolutely. There are different types of trials you may want to try.

App Trial

PicSafe is free to use so simply download and give it a go.

If you want to send reports to Box or Dropbox you will need PicSafe PRO. You can purchase access for 1 month to trial the feature within the app.

Email Integration Trial

One way of storing reports might be to setting up an email address for your institution (e.g. [email protected]) and getting users to send all reports there. This then becomes a repository of all reports. To open reports you will need to send the report back to a mobile device that has PicSafe installed. We recognize that this may not be practical in some situations and therefore we have created Endpoint Integrations (see below).

Once you have set up the email address (e.g. [email protected]), instruct users to do the following:

  1. Open the PicSafe app and tap on "Settings".
  2. Tap on "Institutions Medical Record" and then the "Add" button in the top right.
  3. In "Send type" select "Email", enter the name of your institution (e.g. "My Hospital"), in the "Endpoint" field enter the email address you set up (e.g. [email protected]), and leave the "Key Server" field blank.
  4. Tap the "Save" button in the top right and go back to the main form.
  5. Now in the main form, in the "Send to" options there will be a "My Hospital" listing under "Institutions". Tap on that.

Now you are able to send reports to the email you set up. When you "Submit" a report the email dialogue will open and the email address will be pre-populated.

Endpoint Integration Trial

This will be more relevant for those that operate the IT department of an institution (hospital, clinic, etc.). If you want to integrate PicSafe reports into a patients medical record, PicSafe provides a simple API to allow you to do so.

PicSafe provides a sample Endpoint application. You will need to write your own middleware to take reports uploaded to the endpoint an move them into your medical record system (PicSafe does not perform this integration). To trial this system, however, you do not need to set this up yet - we have a test endpoint setup but please note, all reports are visible to the public. DO NOT USE IT FOR LIVE PATIENT DATA.

To test it out do the following:

  1. Open the PicSafe app and tap on "Settings".
  2. Tap on "Institutions Medical Record" and then the "Add" button in the top right.
  3. In "Send type" select "Post (Dynamic Key)", enter the name of your institution (e.g. "My Hospital"), in the "Endpoint" field enter "http://endpoint.picsafe.com", and leave the "Key Server" field blank.
  4. Tap the "Save" button in the top right and go back to the main form.
  5. Now in the main form, in the "Send to" options there will be a "My Hospital" listing under "Institutions". Tap on that.

Now you are able to send reports to the email you set up. When you "Submit" the report will be uploaded to the demo endpoint. Once finished uploading, if you go to http://endpoint.picsafe.com/ you will see the report you uploaded. Obviously under normal circumstances a page like this would not be visible to the public.

For more details on how endpoints work and how PicSafe can be integrated into medical record systems, please see the Integrations Section of this website.
