The DermEngine Team on Apr 15, 2019
Today marked day one of the American Telemedicine Association Conference held at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans. If you haven’t already, be sure to visit our team at booth 932 to chat with us about how DermEngine’s teledermatology features best fit your professional needs!
Our first year at ATA, the conference has already proven to be a great success for the MetaOptima team. Filled with energy, the hall was packed with healthcare providers, clinicians, business professionals, and leaders across a variety of technology and health sectors interested in learning about the latest innovations in telemedicine.
The Need for Teledermatology Services
At MetaOptima’s booth, attendees had the opportunity to learn about the benefits of adopting teledermoscopy services within their practice. Interest proved to be even higher than anticipated due to the increasing demand for teledermatology services:
- Urban areas saw a jump of 20% usage between 2015 and 20161
- 45% of doctors believed remote working is the answer to unsustainable demand2
- Teledermatologists are able to triage 60% of consultations to be seen the next day or later3
- 74% of millennials prefer booking a virtual healthcare appointment versus a face-to-face visit4
MetaOptima at ATA
The MetaOptima Team was focused on demoing how DermEngine’s teledermatology features could support medical professionals in providing expedited, accessible, and affordable care to new and existing patients. What made DermEngine stand out from other software providers was its variety of additional tools and resources, from clinical decision support tools powered by artificial intelligence (AI), complete total body photography module, to the associated line of mobile dermoscopes.
Through adopting DermEngine, healthcare providers are equipped with the latest technologies to integrate digital health technologies into their daily clinical practice. Rather than dedicating nearly 50% of their work day to administrative tasks (as is currently the case), dermatologists and other care providers and triage and prioritize cases and focus on patients- not the process.
