Image and Video app that works in conjunction with Arthrex’s arthroscopy tower

Overall: 4+
Functionality: 4
Coolness: 5

This app works with Arthrex’s arthroscopy tower and allows for each transfer of images and videos to an iPad for editing, patient education, and sharing.  Use of the app and login information can be obtained from your device representative.

The app is organized into a list of patients with their corresponding images. Once a patient is selected, the images can be viewed individually, with a few editing features for enhancement. For example, this includes saturation adjustment, contrast adjustment, and the ability to annotate with text, lines, and circles/arrows. The benefit of annotation is that images can then be selected for sharing with the patient, via email.  In addition to the images, links can be provided for documentation on related implants, or documents uploaded by the surgeon.  The surgeon can also record a video message or narration of the diagnosis and treatment.

Arthrex has gone to appropriate lengths to ensure that all transmissions are HIPAA compliant, and sharing the images generates 2 emails, the second with a secure password that allows the patient to unlock the attachment in the first email.

Overall, this is a very high quality app that complements their associated medical devices.
