iDoc24 started in the STING (Stockholm innovation and growth) incubator in 2009 and took home first place in the Mobile Healthcare University Challenge at last year’s mHealth Summit in London. So what does a spine surgeon design for iDoc24’s first health application? A remote dermatology exam of course! The product contains a front end mobile application for the patient and an online back-end for the physician. Alexander walks us through the interface and how these two portals provide care.
