The skin cancer open data platform collects data on dermatological conditions related to skin cancer from users through mobile applications and websites. One of the benefits of this data platform is that it will provide live, crowdsourced data collected from around the world, providing deeper insight on the impact of age, sex, geographical location, ethnicity, and other factors, on skin cancer.

This data would be made freely available for researchers to access, and provides a model for open data platforms to be created in other major medical fields.
