MDAlgorithms, an Israeli developer of mobile health apps, has developed MDacne, a new dermatology app for tracking and treating skin conditions.

Unlike other online dermatology services that charge patients a fee to schedule a visit online with a dermatologist, the MDacne app uses enable consumers to take and upload photos of their skin problem and create a personalized 30-day treatment plan based on an assessment of related clinical data stored in the company’s database of skincare conditions.

“Prior apps only exchanged patient data with doctors,” says MDAlgorithms CEO Oded Harth. “This app provides the stepping stone to everybody looking for a solution for skin disorders and our app places the patient in the center and allows for self-treatment.”
