Joined Up Care
At its heart, the Dermicus Platform supports improved collaborative patient care and aims to not only provide technological communication and access to clinical specialism but also to dramatically improve patient care and outcomes. Putting the patient at the centre of care and allowing multiple disciplines and specialisms to interact with patient information is not only an administrative efficiency but has far greater implication for patient care, with patients being diagnosed faster and with a more holistic approach taken to all round care.
Dermicus is a selected solution on the Wessex Academic Health Science Network primary care demonstrator programme.

Dermicus can be securely integrated into primary care patient records systems or patient cases can be exported as a PDF and attached to the patient record.
The Dermicus Platform can be accessed by a traditional web-based portal as well as an iOS app. The app has been designed with simplicity in mind and can allow clinicians to request decision support in less than three minutes. Working on mobile devices gives clinicians the flexibility to work in any environment and deliver the same level of service. The Dermicus app works as well remotely as it does from within a Trust or GP practice. This means that clinicians can receive results and request further analysis whilst in a patient’s home or out in the community. Coupled with a high-quality dermatoscope the Dermicus app delivers world-class imaging and diagnostic capabilities in the palm of your hand.
The Dermicus Platform is managed from an intuitive web interface giving you total control over your service. There are no transaction fees or management fees for using the portal giving you full control to add, remove, and manage users, as well as manage requests and audit the service. The portal provides a single location to manage all aspects of the Dermicus platform and your specific configuration.
To support the transformational benefits of implementing teledermatology, the Dermicus platform drives continuous learning for the users by secure collaboration in the platform. In addition, the platform can provide users with automatic notification of patient cases with the diagnosis removed so that users can test what they believe the diagnosis was before revealing the answer.
This and online courses continue to develop the knowledge of the primary care users leading to improving the adoption of the platform, increased knowledge related to skin cancer and wound management and continuous professional development.
