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.
Health information privacy represents a crucial aspect of patient data handling in dermatology practices. As established by the New Zealand privacy code, cloud-based dermatology software must comply with all rules and regulations for the appropriate management of patient information.
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?
Total body photography has become the preferred methodology for large scale study of potentially serious skin diseases such as melanoma. Despite current technical and operative challenges, this technique is labelled as the future for effective dermatology practices in the fight against skin cancer.
The access to skincare is vital for the early detection of many skin conditions. Better accessibility to dermatology services can be achieved through a wider variety of points of care including PCPs, pharmacies and teledermoscopy services working in synergy to ensure best services for patients.
