Skin-checking app Miiskin has become the first app of its kind to be recommended by UK GPs and other primary care clinicians on the EMIS App Library.
EMIS App Library provides clinicians with a list of digital health apps that they can electronically recommend to patients to access the right support for their specific needs.
All the apps in the library have been reviewed using NHS Digital’s Digital Assessment Questions (DAQ) framework or have been recommended or commissioned by local NHS authorities.
The Miiskin app, which was developed to encourage people to be more aware of changes to their skin, has also gone live on the NHS Apps Library, which has less than 100 apps listed. It is now one of two skin-checking apps to be listed on the Library, alongside MoleCare.
Jon Friis, founder and CEO of Miiskin said, “We are delighted that Miiskin has been listed on the EMIS App Library for GP referral, as well as the NHS Apps Library. The app enables users to track their skin and present photographic evidence to clinicians if they notice concerning changes. Unlike other apps, Miiskin doesn’t aim to encourage patients to self-diagnose.”
