Press Release (ePRNews.com) - St. Paul, MN - Jun 01, 2017 - Dermatology Consultants and the leading teledermatology platform provider Iagnosis, Inc. today announced a partnership that is now delivering high-quality, convenient online dermatology care to patients in the Greater Twin Cities area.
“Skin conditions can require immediate attention, yet we realize that many people may not have access to a skin doctor within a reasonable travel distance,” said Dr. Jeremy Cook, a Board-certified Dermatologist and President of Dermatology Consultants. “We’ve introduced this service to help those patients gain access more easily to a Board-certified dermatologist. Teledermatology is an exciting new way to diagnose and treat patients in the comfort of their own home.”
“Teledermatology is an exciting new way to diagnose and treat patients in the comfort of their own home.”
Both new and existing patients in the Twin Cities area can select one of the available Dermatology Consultants specialists through the new online visit service, without the need for an appointment. Through the online visit, the patient will receive a diagnosis and personalized treatment plan for medical conditions affecting the skin, hair, or nails. Patients only need Internet access and a device for taking digital photos of their problem issue.
To use the service, patients simply go to DermatologyConsultants.com to start an online visit, or they can download the Dermatology Consultants dermatology app from the App Store or on Google Play™.
Here’s how it works:
- An online Dermatology Consultants visit guides patients through several simple steps of creating a patient profile, collecting some medical history and uploading photos of their problem condition. There is no need to schedule a video conference; the patient simply submits their information.
- The patient selects which dermatology specialist they prefer to review their case, and that provider responds with a diagnosis, personalized treatment plan and any prescription orders sent to the patient’s preferred pharmacy. Online visits are typically completed in 24 hours.
- When medically necessary, the patient may be referred for an in-office visit.
- The cost of the online visit is $65.
Parents or guardians can conduct online dermatology visits for children or others in their care. More than 3,000 conditions can be reviewed through online visits, with the most common cases including acne, rashes, eczema, rosacea, psoriasis, toenail fungus, suspicious moles, melanoma and other skin cancers.
Dermatology Consultants’ online visit solution is enabled through a partnership with Iagnosis, the largest provider of a teledermatology-exclusive platform currently used by more than 200 board-certified dermatologists across the U.S. The solution is compliant with HIPAA and HITECH online healthcare information standards for patient data security.
“Recent studies show that patients are looking for on-demand healthcare, and our partnership with Dermatology Consults will meet patients’ needs while providing quick and high-quality care.
