As every year the Ship2B Foundation has recognized, with the seal of social enterprise impact, different startups and companies that develop innovations in the area of health. Among them is Legit.Health, an application capable of detecting skin cancer through a simple photograph taken with a mobile phone. The aim is to create a space to promote technological innovations that help to improve the health and quality of life of people.
This pioneering technology, already in use in several hospitals such as the Torrejón University Hospital in Madrid, is presented as a tool that uses artificial intelligence to improve the lives of doctors and patients, thus creating a better healthcare community. As Andy Aguilar, CEO of Legit.Health, and patient with several skin diseases says: “We use artificial intelligence with the aim of helping the doctor to perform tasks that can be automated so that he can focus on what is more important: the patient”.
The creators of this application are 4 young people with chronic dermatological pathologies. Therefore, they have created the first tool capable of providing doctors with the necessary tools to help them help their patients. The Ship2B Foundation states that this mark recognizes companies that, like Legit.Health, persistently pursues an improvement in health and social welfare. And they seek to respond to current health issues by providing doctors with the tools they need to diagnose diseases that affect millions of people.

Just by filling in, automatically, and with millimetric precision, the tedious measurement scales. Relieving health professionals by providing them with valuable information to make the right decision.
“Legit.Health is a tool that allows both the doctor and the patient to get to the information in a very safe and quick way. It can be accessible at anytime from any device and there is no need to install anything. We made it incredibly easy-to-use.”
Behind the team that runs Legit.Health, there is clear intentionality to respond to social challenges or problems. As Taig Mac Carthy, Co-founder of Legit.Health, says: “Our mission is to help doctors help their patients, the health system is oversaturated and doctors have more work than they can handle.

A pioneering technology
Legit.Health is a communication tool between doctors and patients that uses artificial intelligence and computer vision to help diagnose and monitor visible skin diseases. A platform, which is not only able to recognize what type of pathology appears in the photograph and help diagnose it, but also identify the degree of severity it has and track it.
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. This adds a layer of objectivity that was impossible until now.
This tool has managed to create a technology that adapts to the real-life situations of doctors and patients by helping healthcare professionals streamline their work, automating routine and administrative tasks to help them focus on what’s most important: their patients.
In short, a platform capable of making a clinical diagnosis and an estimate of the severity of the pathologies with the same objective, to assist doctors in the diagnosis and indicate how serious the patient’s pathology is.
