Powerful Skin Image Analytics Enable Effective Digital Engagement for Medzino Telehealth Customers
AUSTIN, Texas and CAMBRIDGE, Mass., June 29, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Medzino Health and BelleTorus Corporation ("Belle") today announced Medzino's licensing of Belle's skin AI technology for Medzino's digital healthcare platform.
With Belle's technology, Medzino's skin health patients can upload smartphone photos of their skin conditions to Medzino's website, where Belle's AI engine analyzes the photos to help characterize and quantify skin conditions including acne and atopic dermatitis (eczema). A U.S. licensed physician then reviews the photo, AI analysis and other patient information, and may issue a prescription to the patient if suitable.
Belle's powerful AI technology supports the diagnosis of lesions and tracks severity, providing rapid decision support helping Medzino's physicians to assess, track, and treat patient skin conditions. The Belle skin image matching engine is secure, cloud-based and HIPAA-compliant, and is provided via API integration into partners' websites. Belle's applications are available for providers, clinical trials, skin and health product companies.
"Belle's AI outputs, which quantify the severity of skin conditions, can help track patient progress and the effectiveness of prescribed treatments," said Sami Malik, Medzino Chief Executive Officer. "This improved tracking and assessment will translate into improved patient retention, optimized therapy, and better outcomes."
Belle's skin AI offerings also include the powerful Belle 1K™, which classifies over 1,000 common and rare skin conditions, as well as other skin AI modules that quantify the severity of inflammatory skin diseases including psoriasis, nail psoriasis, alopecia areata, vitiligo and melasma.
Belle is a global leader in AI-powered skin image analytics and enjoys partnerships with top medical centers and dermatologists to test, validate, and continuously improve its AI algorithms. Physicians in more than twenty countries currently use Belle's AI image analytics modules and devices to drive better access to skin healthcare and to achieve improved medical precision in clinical research.
