The Importance of Safety in Aesthetics

Safety in Aesthetics

Safety is one of our core values here at iConsult Software. Why? Well, aside from the fact that it is a fundamental requirement when any kind of service is provided, we also know how important safety is, especially within the aesthetics and private healthcare market.

It is of paramount importance that we practice patient safety right from the first contact. We should make sure that any risks or side effects associated with treatments are made explicitly clear; we should ensure that the patient is clear on all treatment options available to them; and most importantly, we should carry out a thorough assessment during the initial consultation process to determine which treatments are suitable for the patient, and which are not.

Should we feel that a patient is seeking a certain treatment that we do not think is a appropriate post-assessment, we should, as medical professionals, refuse to perform any such procedure (not just for safety purposes, but also because we should practice integrity).

How does iConsult influence Patient Safety?

iConsult assists the initial consultation process by easily enabling the conversations concerning patient safety to flow effortlessly, and ensure that both the practitioner and patient are on the same page.

The app takes you through your consultation in a natural but meticulous way, ensuring no stones are left unturned; you (the practitioner) will have all the necessary information required to ensure the ultimate patient safety going forward (including before and after images taken at the time of consultation), and the patient will leave feeling very clear about exactly what they can expect from a treatment with you, and more importantly, any risks associated.
