Source: Scoop, February 2017

New Zealand health app Firstcheck is launching in Australia tomorrow on its mission to put skin specialists in the pockets of all smartphone users.

The app has been addressing New Zealand’s alarming skin cancer rates by connecting people to a skin specialist from the comfort of their own home.

“Firstcheck puts a skin specialist at your fingertips to make it super easy to get an expert and almost immediate opinion on suspicious moles and other skin conditions,” says Firstcheck co-founder Hayden Laird.

The iOS and Android app is free to download and was launched in New Zealand in November 2016. It goes live in Australia tomorrow, just in time for Melanoma March.
