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.
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?
As teledermoscopy software evolves, so do its applications and benefits. This article summarizes the top four sectors set to evolve the way doctors provide care and how patients view their experience. As a result, teledermatology services are becoming more accessible and streamlined than ever before
Teledermoscopy tools such as MoleScope (mobile dermoscope) and DermEngine (intelligent dermatology software) can support the decreasing number of available dermatologists to provide specialized, quality care.
