What does the app do?
This app is for New Zealand users to submit a photo of their skin concern to a skin specialist, at a cost from $19.95 NZD per photo consultation. The app can also be used to simply keep track of a mole, rash or other skin concerns over time.
- The app guides users through the process starting with instructions on taking photographs of their skin concern. This can either be done with the user's mobile device or with an attachment on the mobile device called a SkinScope (an optional purchase for $29.95 NZD) which takes a magnified image.
- The app then asks users to provide details including where on the body it is located, how long it has been there, whether it has changed over time, accompanying symptoms, and risk factors for melanoma.
- The user is given the option to save the information within the app for future reference, or choose a skin specialist in their region and submit the information for consultation. The specialist advises whether no further action or a follow-up appointment is needed or in some cases a course of over-the counter medicine may be advised.
