Patients can conveniently access the specialized care by our board-certified dermatologists in the comfort of their home without sacrificing treatment quality.”
Here’s how it works:
· An online visit with Associates in Dermatology guides patients through several simple steps of creating a patient profile, collecting some medical history, uploading photos of the problem condition and getting the patient’s description of the condition.
· After review, Associates in Dermatology provides a diagnosis and personalized treatment plan typically within 24 hours, which includes routing necessary prescriptions to the patient’s preferred pharmacy.
· When medically necessary, the patient will be referred for an in-office visit.
The service can also be used by parents or guardians to conduct online visits for children or others, without needing to miss work or school.
Among the more than 3,000 conditions for which patients can access the system are acne, rashes, eczema, rosacea, psoriasis, toenail fungus, suspicious moles, melanoma and other skin cancers.
The online visit solution is enabled through Associates in Dermatology’s partnership with Iagnosis, the largest provider of a teledermatology-exclusive platform currently used by more than 100 board-certified dermatologists across the U.S. The solution is compliant with HIPAA and HITECH national online healthcare information standards for patient security.
Says Iagnosis’ CEO, Dave Zynn: “Our commitment is to partner with dedicated and contemporary dermatologists like Associates in Dermatology who recognize the need to employ modern solutions to increase patient access to quality healthcare.
