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.
Join MetaOptima at the HealthCert’s Professional Certificate of Skin Cancer Medicine course on February 23-24 in Melbourne. Meet MetaOptima’s Country Manager, Mr. Peter Birch and Client Success Executive, Ms. Michelle Menzies for a chance to learn more on DermEngine’s potential in your practice.
As disconnected healthcare systems continue to burden providers, medical experts are turning to an enterprise approach to standardize operational workflows. Practices are now adopting interoperable EMR software such as DermEngine with the goal of optimizing communication for higher quality care.
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 advent of cloud-based dermatology software has allowed for the implementation of streamlined data collection, storage and analysis. Stakeholders in the healthcare system can benefit from real-time sharing of updated information that drives improved diagnosis.
Skin cancer early detection constitutes the biggest challenge of dermatology practices. The application of teledermatology and total body photography has brought great improvements in detecting the disease at early stages with higher survival rates and important saving in the public health systems.
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?
