DermEngine Integration for Zedmed


This page explains how to set-up the DermSync software to sync patient demographic data from the Zedmed software to DermEngine.

While using this software, patients on Zedmed will be transferred to the DermEngine platform. On DermEngine, images and lesions can be added to each patient.

  • The user needs to have permission to install DermSync
