What we needThe goal of this app is to help to standardize photographs and eventually help differentiate between normal skull shape, deformational plagiocephaly (irregular head shape for infants lying on their back) and craniosynostosis (irregular head shape from premature skull bone fusion which can result in severe developmental delay). Parents drive many hours to Akron for craniosynostosis rule out given it requires highly specialized, interdisciplinary surgical teams, but the diagnosis could be excluded by telemedicine in 70-90% of cases without them making the trip.

About usWe were founded on the principle of serving the needs of our community. Within our doors, this means treating all children as if they were our own, and turning no child or family away based on their ability to pay. In the community, this means improving access to healthcare services for children and families, enhancing public health, advancing medical or health knowledge, and reducing the burden of government or other community efforts.
