Teledermatology: Support Your Patients At Every Step

by The DermEngine Team on Apr 15, 2020

Telemedicine has quickly become the go-to solution in response to COVID-19 for medical professionals to provide connected care without compromising the safety of their staff and patients. To encourage a successful implementation, stakeholders must be supported at every step; after all, how effective can patient-centric services truly be without the confidence of its patients?

Breaking down traditional proximity barriers, the value of teledermatology lies in its ability to engage the patient in their care cycle through a tool they already possess: a smartphone. In a few simple taps, patients can submit images to their doctor from the comfort of their home while experiencing peace of mind. However, while teledermatology has the ability to drastically improve accessibility of care, it may present a challenge for the physician to convey the value of telemedicine while ensuring that their patients are able to use the service with confidence.

Support begins when you first invite your patients to complete their account, where they’ll be sent a welcome email complete with a guide to help them get started with ease.

Bringing It All Together: The Patient’s Journey1. Create MoleScope Account-1
Adding Patients: Invite current patients and also extend your services to external patients by having them join the patient portal (MoleScope) directly through your DermEngine account, or set up an invite page directly on your website where patients interested in submitting their cases can sign up. 

2. Capture Images Of Your SkinCapturing & Submitting Images: Patients can capture overview images of their skin condition with their smartphone and submit them directly to your practice for professional review. For skin cancer and other conditions, patients have the ability to use a mobile dermoscope such as MoleScope II (available for $149 USD) to capture dermoscopic images of their skin.


3. Submit Dermatology Images For Feedback

Receiving Reports: Once you’ve provided your professional opinion, the patient will receive an in-app notification and email informing them their report is ready. This can be accessed on the MoleScope web browser or within the app and includes information such as their images, notes, and diagnosis depending on your settings.
