Think Tank Innovations ( ShareSmart)

ShareSmart is a secure clinical photography and chat app for healthcare professionals to collaborate with one another using their smartphones to adhere with patient health information privacy regulations. ShareSmart was launched in August of 2016 after a series of academic studies, elucidated the daunting statistics surrounding health information privacy breaches in healthcare, involving the transmission of clinical images and patient information on smartphones. To complement our software applications our academic work with institutions like the Canadian Medical Association (CMA) and the University of Calgary have made us a thought leader on digital privacy and professionalism. Above and beyond this, the individuals of ShareSmart contribute to the small business and innovation ecosystems to help drive economic diversification, innovation and job growth. It is our goal to create positive global change by restoring public confidence in digital privacy within the healthcare sector.
