The No. 1 Healthcare App in the U.S.

Share on Facebook

Currently, the most-downloaded healthcare app in the United States is a medical image-sharing app, according to a report in the Canadian Medical Journal Association.

Figure 1, launched by Canadian company Movable Science two weeks ago, allows users (90 percent of whom are physicians, according to the report), to share and comment on medical images.

The app has a face-detection algorithm to prevent images with patients' faces to be shared, and other privacy-protecting information is included in the app's instructions, according to the report.

The app is currently only available on the iOS platform, but an Android version is in the works, according to the report.
