BellinHealth is to release a new facial application that aims to bring together beauty, science and science education for the healthcare workforce.
Launching in April, the new application, Teladoscope, will bring together research and education to support the delivery of cosmetic surgery services.
“Teladoscope will give healthcare professionals a new way to share their knowledge and experience,” Teladoscopes CEO Tim Wilson said.
“It will help improve the quality of care, reduce costs, and improve the customer experience.”
Teladoscope’s application will use a combination of facial and voice recognition to deliver a facial-based, interactive app for the health care workforce.
“A lot of our existing services, like our Facial Imaging service, are not accessible in a digital context,” Wilson said, noting that the app’s use of voice recognition is the first in the industry.
“We’re trying to make it easy for health care professionals to share experiences with patients and their families, and also for consumers to find the service they need.”
Telascience’s Facial App is available for iOS and Android devices and will include a variety of features that are already available to the Facial Diagnostics app.
“For the health professional, Facial Exam is a way to assess the appearance of a patient’s face to help the clinician make an informed diagnosis,” Wilson added.
The application will be available in the Bellin app store and will be made available to patients in early April.
Telascientys facial app was first launched in October 2015 and features features a range of user-generated content, such as video and photos, along with the ability to view patient information such as location and clinical information.
“In addition to facial assessments, we will soon be introducing an online consultation platform where you can ask questions about a specific procedure or consultation, and we’ll also be developing a facial training tool that will help healthcare professionals improve their own appearance,” Wilson explained.
