InsightMedi and Temple University disrupt dentistry education with InsightDenti

A young company from Europe and a 154 year old School of Dentistry from the US join forces to bring the advantages of healthcare social platforms to the new age of adaptive education.

The Maurice H. Kornberg School of Dentistry (Temple University) and InsightMedi today introduced InsightDenti, a novel cloud-based platform for dental faculty and dentists to share, in a secure space, patient cases for discussion and exchange of critical information. InsightDenti brings the advantages of cutting-edge social platforms to the healthcare ecosystem, focused on providing a secure environment where dentistry professionals, school faculty, and students can discuss clinical cases regardless of their level of expertise, geographical location, or device of choice.

InsightMedi’s role in the development of InsightDenti has been to make sure the School could extend this approach in education to a fully interactive online environment, by providing flexibility to the body of faculty and students, while at the same time taking advantage of InsightMedi’s expertise in creating a robust, compliant platform for social interaction in healthcare.

The launch of this new platform, focused today on dentistry for Temple’s own faculty and student body, has the potential to expand its reach and make a positive impact on the healthcare education system, by allowing the faculty’s clinical experience to be stored, automatically processed, and securely shared among a vast group of professionals. With the promise of improved communication among faculty, secured sharing capabilities for online consultation, and a SaaS distribution model for fast expansion, InsightDenti will make its way into the practitioners’ workflow while helping reduce consultation costs, reaching faster and more accurate diagnosis, removing geographical limitations, and ultimately improving the quality of care.

InsightDenti is a secure and compliant platform

InsightDenti sits on top of the Google Cloud Platform and conforms to the Google security model, an end-to-end process focused on keeping users and data safe across the board. From Secured Service APIs and Authenticated Access to Data Encryption and Sensitive Data Management, InsightDenti makes sure to leverage all critical features implemented in Google’s own security model.

InsightDenti supports HIPAA compliance with the Security Rule, the Privacy Rule, and the Breach Notification Rule through the Google Cloud Platform, within the scope of a Business Associate Agreement. The platform undergoes several independent third party audits on a regular basis to provide users with external verification. Audits on standards like SSAE16 / ISAE 3402 Type II, ISO 27001, ISO 27017, ISO 27018, FedRamp ATO, and PCI DSS v3.1 are conducted on yearly basis.

InsightDenti is an education tool with a life of its own

InsightDenti not only offers Temple’s user base the possibility to share and interact around clinical cases on a secure environment, but it also adapts its content to what the School’s community is engaging around at a given time.

Thanks to its very own trending algorithm, InsightDenti provides easy access to top cases that are being heavily discussed in the platform, with real-time updates on the cases feed. Faculty and students are served with the most relevant content from a “live” stream, that works behind the curtains to guarantee that the most valuable information is pushed in front of as many people as possible.

InsightDenti is an innovative tool that can intelligently adapt itself to address the needs of the evolving process of teaching and learning in dentistry. The more the platform is used, the more it becomes a reflection of what the community around Temple really needs. Therefore making it easier for the School’s personnel to deliver prompt, effective, and high quality patient care.

InsightDenti is accessible and multi-platform

One key aspect of any cloud-based platform of today is accessibility. InsightDenti has been designed to allow anyone with the right credentials to access the system regardless of location, preferred device, or system, ensuring both direct and indirect access, compatible with anyone’s assistive technology.

InsightDenti has been developed following the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG), a series of principles designed for improving web accessibility, produced by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) and enforced by the School’s IT team from the very beginning of the process.

It was extremely important for InsightMedi’s team to provide the same experience to all Temple users, regardless of their preferred operative system or device. InsightDenti follows Material Design principles and it has been built with a fully adaptive interface to deliver the best user experience to all connected devices, regardless of screen size or specific hardware features.

InsightDenti was designed to grow and improve

Taking advantage of the experience gathered for over three years of building InsightMedi’s own platform, InsightDenti’s design started with a vision of expandability. The whole system has been built over a newly created API that will allow InsightDenti, not only to perform efficiently, but to expand its capabilities with direct integration to other systems relevant to the dentistry community at Temple.

Additional features can be easily added to allow third-party systems to export images directly into InsightDenti (e.g., from MiPACS), share cases securely with other platforms, stream video content from relevant external sources, implement Artificial Intelligence (AI) techniques for image analysis, and much more.

A partnership to move the field forward

Temple University’s Kornberg School of Dentistry promotes health through the education of diverse general and specialty dentists; provides comprehensive, patient-centered, evidence-based and outcome-driven oral health care; and, engages in research, scholarly activities and community service.

At InsightMedi, we foster the healthcare community by providing innovative tools to share, update, and expand their knowledge.

InsightMedi exists because the people behind the company firmly believe there are endless possibilities to improve healthcare through the use of technology. The challenges this principle brings to us stimulate our desire to take action, to create, to innovate, and to be a part of something bigger than ourselves.

We envision a future in which the healthcare community works together, regardless of location, language, or field of expertise, to solve global problems effectively, to serve, and to improve the quality of sanitary care for every human being.

We’re thrilled to have the opportunity to work with Temple University, to align the focus of our mission to the one of the School of Dentistry, and to create a new partnership that will help us contribute to moving the field forward.
