We've detected that you're in . Would you like to go to the MediCam site?

Doctors should be free to focus on delivering better patient care.

We've created a beautifully designed and simple-to-use app that helps eliminate the risk of privacy breaches when sharing patient data. Securely capture, send and store patient consented photos, videos and audio. Oh, and it’s FREE!

Avoid the lawyers

If ever you take a patient photo on your phone, you’re at risk

... even if your intentions are pure and you're just trying to deliver a better patient outcome. Patient consent should be recorded every time. Photos MUST be securely stored. Photos MUST be encrypted when transmitted.

6 scary problems when capturing patient photos, video or audio

patient data stored on phone

There's patient data stored on your phone. What happens if you lose it?

auto uploaded to cloud accounts

Photos are often auto-uploaded to cloud accounts. There have been breaches in the past.

not transmitted securely

Patient data often isn't transmitted securely and can be intercepted.

not stored securely

When shared, patient data often isn't stored securely by recipients.

no record of consent

There's no record of consent being recorded. This can lead to trouble if there's dispute later!

who has accessed

There's no record of who has accessed the data.

The MediCam Solution


All data and media is encrypted in the MediCam app before being sent.

Patient Consent

Patients can either sign on the screen or record verbal consent.

Audit Trail

Access to reports is logged, and is therefore traceable (geo/time/device stamped).


MediCam is super easy to use, just like the camera app on your phone.

AES-256 Encryption

We use Advanced Encryption Standard 256-bit keys

Most people will not need to know this but, we also use: CBC mode, password stretching with PBKDF2, password salting, random IV, and encrypt-then-hash HMAC. What you do need to know is that there are no known cases of this encryption having ever been "cracked".

Security Tested

MediCam has undertaken independent Vulnerability Assessment and Penetration Testing (VAPT). See the MediCam Security for more.

A$1.7m fines for a privacy breach!

Sending patient data unencrypted is like sending a post card. As it travels across the Internet the content can be read leaving you exposed to significant fines for each privacy breach, even without proving damages.

*Australian Privacy Principles (APPs) came into effect in March 2014. There are fines are up to $340,000 (for individuals) and $1.7 million (for corporations) per privacy breach. There is no longer any legal requisite to demonstrate patient damages. Legal Department, Avant Insurance. Published in Avant Physician Issue 10, March 2013 Also see: Section 13G and 80W(5) of the Privacy Act.

Why is MediCam free?

MediCam is free and will always be free.

We realised that if we charged for the app, doctors may continue to send photos insecurely using the default camera and messaging apps on their phones. This is dangerous and we want to help. Full disclosure, we also have an ulterior motive! We have a "MediCam PRO" version with some advanced features. The free version (MediCam Basic) will suit most people but if you want some advanced features find out more here. We also have enterprise licences that will allow institutions to easily integrate MediCam into patient medical record systems.
