Figure 1 is Like Instagram for Doctors and Nurses (Video)


Josh_Landy_ScreenshotThis week on Health Tech Weekly I bring you a special interview with Dr. Josh Landy, the originator of a new social media app created just for health care professionals so they can share images and information safely and securely while protecting patient confidentiality. Think of it as Instagram for doctors and nurses. Here’s that interview with Dr. Josh Landy.

Josh created Figure 1, a new photo sharing app designed specifically for nurses, doctors and medical students. The idea behind Figure 1 is that there is a wealth of knowledge that can be tapped into by capitalizing on daily social media behavior. With privacy a concern, Figure 1 protects the patient by instantly removing all identifying features from the photo. Here’s a special interview and look at the Figure 1 app with Dr. Josh Landy!

  1. Hey! I know this is kinda off topic however I’d figured I’d
    ask. Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest
    writing a blog post or vice-versa? My website covers a lot of the same topics as yours and I feel we could greatly benefit from each other.

    If you happen to be interested feel free to shoot me an e-mail.

    I look forward to hearing from you! Awesome blog
    by the way!
