About Legit.Health

Legit.Health is a communication tool between doctors and patients that uses artificial intelligence and computer vision algorithms to help diagnose and monitor visible skin diseases. Its technology automates routine and administrative tasks to help doctors focus on what’s most important: the patient.

The algorithms designed by Legit.Health are able to score automatically, and through a simple photograph, most medical grading systems such as PASI, SCORAD, UAS, GAGS and many more dermatological grading systems.

The automatization of these scoring systems not only helps doctors and empowers the patient, but adds a layer of objectivity that was impossible until now. This technology helps dermatologists provide quicker diagnoses than the traditional way, reducing doctors’ workload by allowing them to estimate the severity of the pathology quickly and objectively.

A platform capable of making a clinical diagnosis and an estimation of the severity of the pathologies. In short, an application designed to help doctors reach where they can’t reach. And give them all the keys they need to help them help their patients.
