Telemedicine Uses – Teledermatology

by James Heller 8. October 2010 14:22

Teledermatology is a health technology tool used by dermatologists all over the world. With this, dermatologists are able to reach out to patients in need of care from thousands of miles away- distance is not a barrier to treatment. Using teledermatology makes it possible for a patient to receive treatment from a dermatologist within only a few hours or days, instead of having to wait several weeks or months. Another benefit of using teledermatology is efficiency – it allows dermatologists to treat more patients in less time.

One teledermatology method is to participate in a live online interactive treatment session with the patient (web camera, computer with internet connection). Another way is through email. The dermatologist views a high-resolution image sent to their email, usually by the patient’s primary care physician. In many cases, the doctor can view the patient’s ailment and give a diagnosis for treatment,then prescribe medication to the patient. All of this can happen without the necessity of a face-to-face visit. Additionally, the dermatologist can give a consultation through email or phone.

Teledermatology is very beneficial because a patient can begin treatment much sooner and be on their way to better health. Without teledermatology, unfortunately for many patients, the ability to see a dermatologist face-to-face usually involves having an appointment date in the far future, a long wait time in a doctor’s office, or not at all due to travel issues from home to the doctor’s office. Teledermatology is a convenient and efficient way for a patient to receive much needed healthcare.

Tarzana Treatment Centers in Los Angeles provides teledermatology services as part of our commitment to integrated healthcare.  Offering our patients speedier and more efficient dermatology services through telemedicine is yet another example of our efforts to stay on the cutting edge of health technology.  Treatment for skin problems is now available in the San Fernando Valley and beyond.

With 42 percent of Americans living in areas underserved by dermatologists, says John Bocachica, M.D., "A qualitative study led by a research team at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center suggests that patients want full access to all of their medical records; are willing to make some privacy concessions in the interest of making their medical records completely transparent; and, going forward, fully expect that computers will play a major role in their medical care, even substituting for face-to-face doctor visits (Walker J, Ahern D, Le LX, Delbanco T. J Gen Intern Med. 2009 Jun;24(6):727-732)." He is chief of dermatology and teledermatology, Alaska Native Medical Center (ANMC), Anchorage, Alaska, and chairman of the American Telemedicine Association's (ATA) Teledermatology Special Interest Group (SIG).
