Partner to Show 3D anatomical modeling on iPad and use Apple pencil for drawing and cross-sections
DrChrono Inc., the company enabling the medical practice of the future, and 3D4Medical, the global leader in the development of ground-breaking 3D technology that disrupts traditional methods of education, have teamed up so practices across the United States can access 3D interactive modeling and animation videos from within their EHR to better educate patients.
Now physician practices using DrChrono’s mobile EHR platform can directly access 3D4Medical’s library of 3D interactive models of anatomy across ophthalmology, orthopedics, dentistry, physical therapy, chiropractic, and cardiology specialties. Using the iPad and Apple Pencil, physicians can now draw on these models and display cross-sections of the anatomy in 3D to better educate patients about their conditions and recommend specific treatment plans. In addition, clinicians can access 3D animation videos to give patients more detailed visuals and a deeper understanding of their condition.

Niall Johnston, President of 3D4Medical Inc stated, “Better educated patients make more informed decisions, which lead to improved outcomes. Instead of relying on two-dimensional photos, physicians can now give their patients an interactive, 3D experience that can easily illustrate what is going on in their body in a way that still, flat images simply cannot. Partnering with DrChrono brings this 3D world to patients where physicians are already using iPads and iPhones to access medical records and document patient information. Now physicians can easily launch into our Complete Anatomy application and do things like use the iPad and Apple Pencil to zoom in and show in-depth cross-sections of the anatomy.”
Daniel Kivatinos, COO and Co-Founder of DrChrono stated, “At DrChrono we look for partners like 3D4Medical that leverage Apple hardware to bring the latest breakthrough applications to medical practices. Being able to show patients, detailed 3D models of the anatomy using iPhone, iPad Pro, and Apple Pencil to do cross-sections and explain treatment plans, is a game changer, and we are excited that practices using DrChrono’s platform all over the country can now access Complete Anatomy right from their EHRs.”
