Shooting with your mobile in Theatre & Auto Adding to patient file

A recent update to Adobe Lightroom CC on iPad, iPhone and Android devices allows you to auto-add to a patient folder. This is especially handy if you want the days OT images to be synced back to the main catalog in the rooms.

This can be especially useful if you are operating, and you have a surgical assistant take the images for you.

The patient albums ( equivalent of folders on the desktop software ) should be pre-populated by the initial consult images, however if they aren’t you can quickly create a new album.

Important notes :

  1. Have your naming structure match your desktop software - ie : Jane Smith 251084 on Desktop Lightroom needs to be Jane Smith 251084 on mobile - not SMITH, Jane 251084.

  2. Remember to turn off Auto-Add as it will continue to add images to that folder - including your personal ones - if you do not turn it off.

OnDemand Video Library

So it’s finally here! A tailored on demand subscription service for Clinical Photography training videos!

Whilst doing workshops around the world we found similar questions being asked around how to do clinical photography the right way. Whether it’s minor questions on what camera to use, or how to setup lighting or how to position the patient correctly for non-surgical injectables or breast augmentation.

So in response we’ve created a library of training videos covering the basics all the way through to more advanced techniques. This library is designed for those who may not want our full studio or DIY packages, but more just want to subscribe or rent individual training modules.

If you’re a new client you will have full access to this library as included in your installation.

This library will be continuously added too with guest appearances by leading Cosmetic health care professionals.

Support partnership with Clinitech

As we head into our 5 years of Clinical Imaging, we’ve noticed the need for better real time support across our installations.

A common theme in most modern medical practises is poor IT infrastructure, sub-standard computers and networking as well as poor support. We’ve seen this hands on during our installations and it’s often causes numerous bottleneck issues that on the surface appear to be related to our software, but have much deeper issues linked to underlying infrastructure.

With this in mind I spent the first half of 2019 in search of an IT firm that not only understood the industry, but understood my clients very specific needs. I was very happy to eventually find Alec, Jason and Brent at Clinitech.

How this would work :

Support :

All new sites or those on active support plans would have Datto Taskforce installed ( consider it a much more capable version of Teamviewer ) which provides real time support on the photography capture computer.

This would generate screenshots, tickets and a remote support between 9am-5pm AEST.

Sales :

As part of our collaboration Clinitech would provide a free audit of your current IT infrastructure, as well as pricing on service agreements, hardware upgrades and cloud based services. This provides you initially with an indication on the value of your current setup but also a pathway to move forward with a new provider that I’ve personally vetted.
