When reviewing your case, doctors have the opportunity to utilize tools powered by artificial intelligence to support their clinical decisions for an enhanced level of care.
In order for DermEngine’s algorithms to become “smarter” over time to fulfill this mission of improved care, they must be continuously trained. To support this intrinsic need, every time a doctor uses one of our artificial intelligence-powered tools the system has the opportunity to “learn” and become better for you and other patients around the world. Any images and data used for these algorithms have been de-identified, which means that all identifiable information such as name, date of birth, health ID number, email have been removed. This entirely automated process ensures that all data remains anonymous and secure, with no employees or third parties having any access to your data at any point of the learning process.
Transparency is our core value. If you do not wish to have the DermEngine system use your de-identified information to tailor its features and enhance smart tools that may be used by doctors, you have the opportunity to opt out at any time. When given the opportunity to learn, DermEngine’s algorithms will improve over time to help other patients and doctors around the world for enhanced care outcomes.
It is important to note that you are able to opt out at any point of the care process, however, the exclusion of your data from the algorithms will only be eligible for information that is entered after the opt-out request has been completed.
