As technology continues to evolve, how will patient-centred care shift to patient-centric care with the support of teledermoscopy services?
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.
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.
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.
