The MetaOptima team greatly enjoyed their first year attending the ATA19 Conference! We were happy to share insights on the power of efficient and accessible teledermatology tools that streamline practices and provide quality care to patients with evidence-based support tools.
Today was day 1 of the American Telemedicine Association Conference. Visit booth 932 to see how DermEngine’s teledermatology features best fit your needs.
In dermatology, the dermatologist is the center of the practice. It is their extensive knowledge and skill set that allows the patient to receive the care they need. So why is 48% of their time dedicated to paperwork? Dermoscopy workflows can be distributed among practice staff for optimized care.
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.
Medical professionals, particularly dermatologists, have been combining their services with telecommunication for nearly a quarter of a century. Although valued for its efficiency, in some areas teledermatology approaches still face numerous barriers which have slowed its widespread 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?
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.
