I wouldn't use this to prescribe. Maybe the FDA should just make every drug over the counter. Then people could just self diagnose and treat. If they are right, great, terrific, they save money. Butif they screw up , and need a physician to straighten out their health, well my fee wold be very, very high..and cash only!

> The manufacturer claims it could reduce the cost of healthcare by reducing office visits. So your doctor sees you over the Iphone but insurance won't pay for a phone encounter. All the liability, no payment. Maybe the patient could send the image to the nurse call line from their insurance provider who might not even be in the USA and get a prescription sent from Mexico.
