Miscommunication and other breakdowns in health have been reported to cause significant negative impacts. However, care networks are becoming more connected by harnessing the utility of telehealth to promote proactive health monitoring that streamlines health systems using digital technology.
Artificial intelligence has been commonly used in the business world for its basic automation. Applied to pathology and dermatology, AI’s power can analyze patient images as a clinical decision support tool while connecting medical workers to create an optimized patient healthcare ecosystem.
Some nations’ implementation strategies have proven to be drivers in overcoming technical and regulatory obstacles when applying teledermatology in their health system. The U.S. and other nations should attempt to imitate and build upon these methods to facilitate further global adoption.
Dermoscopy: known for its ability to increase the diagnostic accuracy of skin cancer, comes in many forms. Recently is the introduction of mobile dermoscopy for in-home imaging. What can medical experts do to convince patients that this is the next step in receiving accessible skin care services?
The scalability of teledermatology software like DermEngine is breaking through to health operations of all kinds. From solo & group practices to large enterprises, this cloud-based software provides the opportunity for growth so that healthcare professionals are able to better serve their patients.
Total Body Photography (or full-body imaging) is useful for monitoring patients with a greater risk of developing skin cancer. However, with this method requires many imaging sessions in a clinic setting. How are dermatologists addressing this challenge while ensuring patients receive quality care?
Skin cancer is a problem that affects us all. In spite of the widely recognized importance of skin cancer early detection, rates continue to increase. Overwhelmed, dermatologists are starting to empower patients with mobile dermoscopes to take skin cancer imaging into their own hands.
