About Skinopathy 
Skinopathy is a Canadian medtech company that is modernizing how healthcare practitioners, pharmaceuticals, and cosmeceuticals are screening, tracking, and managing all skin conditions. 

It was started during the pandemic when Co-Founder, Dr. Colin Hong, noticed patients were coming to his clinic presenting with late-stage skin cancer due to delayed and/or canceled skin cancer screenings. 

Not only were people’s well-being at stake, but he knew that these delays would only get worse and stretch an already taxed healthcare system to its limits. 

That is when he decided to collaborate with technologist and entrepreneur, Keith Loo, MBA, 
to revolutionize, digitize, and automate the entire dermatological journey. Everything from 
screening to research.
