Pocket-sized solutions Real-sized doctors
Our growing team of doctors support us with medical expertise across research and product development, while also providing medical assistance for our patients. Meet some of them here.
Our dermatologists have years of experience in the use of teledermatology and testing digital solutions alongside their work in clinics, hospitals, and universities.
Extensive training for diverse patients
Thousands of smartphone images of all skin tones, types, and conditions have been analysed by our medical team to build the foundation for remote care.
Modern tools for accessible care
Remote care isn’t a compromise. The evolution in smartphone technology has ensured a high agreement rate between virtual and in-person examinations.
Why virtual care?
With a growing shortage of doctors and long waiting times for a dermatologist, too many people today don’t have access to the care they need to manage their skin condition. We’re here to change that.
We’re on a mission to build a new healthcare model that leverages digital technologies to improve health services and facilitate access to quality care remotely and timely - we call it virtual care.
