‘Instagram for doctors’ to be launched in Europe
BBC News

An app which enables healthcare professionals to share photos is to be rolled out across western Europe by the end of the year.

The app was designed to enable doctors to share pictures of their patients, both with each other and with medical students.

So far, more than 150,000 doctors have uploaded case photos with the patient’s identity obscured.

However, some experts have expressed concern about patient confidentiality.

Patients’ faces are automatically obscured by the app but users must manually block identifying marks like tattoos.
