Why teledermatology?

The NHS states that in 2019-20 there were 3 million dermatology outpatient appointments in England, making it the sixth highest treatment function in terms of volume.

 

Why implement teledermatology with Dermicus?

Dermicus is specialised for dermatology – founded by a dermatology consultant. We only work with dermatology pathways and customers.

Skin cancer

Skin cancer is the most common cancer in the UK, and dermatology services receive more urgent referrals for suspected cancer than any other speciality.

Outpatient pressure

Before Covid-19 outpatient services were already under pressure, and so now the NHS is stating that clinicians should consider avoiding physical outpatient appointments.

Timely care

The main long-term benefit of teledermatology triage is to ensure patients receive timely care in the most appropriate setting and at greater convenience. This increases capacity in secondary care for patients who need face-to-face referrals.

Beyond the initial implementation

The Dermicus Teledermatology platform is configurable to support AI studies in dermatology. AI will be a part of the future of dermatology care. Gnosco is already supporting researchers with their work to understand and evidence the safe use of AI for dermatology patients.

I have still been able to offer a consultant opinion, with the confidence that this is accurate and useful. In addition, because the images are able to be stored, should there be any question over the diagnosis in the future, the images would be available for audit.

Self-isolating consultant due to Covid-19

The Dermicus App is an excellent tool for primary care clinicians, providing a reliable interface with a skin specialist. It saves time and costs and improves the efficiency of assessments.
