Dermatology Specialists Connects Its Doctors to Patients Through New Online Visit Capability
Dermatology Specialists has partnered with Iagnosis, Inc. to give patients in Alabama, Florida and Georgia more flexibility in obtaining dermatologic care via an online platform
Panama City, FL, June 1, 2017 (Newswire.com) - Dermatology Specialists has partnered with the nation’s leading teledermatology-focused platform provider, Iagnosis, Inc., to deliver high-quality, convenient online dermatology visits to patients through their board-certified dermatologists.
Dr. Jon R. Ward, founder and president of Dermatology Specialists of Florida, said: “Our new online dermatology offering to patients ensures that patients get the most appropriate care for their condition while keeping pace with trends in tele-healthcare and consumer demand for greater scheduling flexibility. With dermatology being such a visual specialty area, online visits using digital photos work extremely well and we are very excited to offer our dermatology medical care through this option.”
Both new and existing patients in Alabama, Florida and Georgia can select a board-certified dermatologist at Dermatology 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.
"With dermatology being such a visual specialty area, online visits using digital photos work extremely well and we are very excited to offer our dermatology medical care through this option."
To use the service, patients simply go to MyDermSpecialists.com/virtual-visit/ to start an online visit, or they can download the Dermatology Specialists mobile app from the App Store or on Google Play™.
Here’s how it works:
- An online dermatology 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 Specialists provider 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 $59.
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 Specialists’ online visit solution is enabled through a partnership with Iagnosis, the largest provider of a teledermatology-exclusive platform currently used by more than 250 board-certified dermatologists across the U.S. The solution is compliant with HIPAA and HITECH online healthcare information standards for patient data security.
