: Nearly 80% of the world's population live in developing countries in Asia, Africa, and Latin America. Many of these countries must face a triple or quadruple burden of disease with severely limited resources and health systems. South Africa (SA) is one such country, and recognises the potential for e-health to moderate these limitations. Dermatological issues remain a concern in SA and globally. Indeed, the World Health Organisation (WHO) has recognised that a number of diseases are most likely to manifest themselves through a dermatological problem before becoming full-blown...

BACKGROUND: There is little teledermatology research directly comparing remote methods, even less research with two in-person dermatologist agreement providing a baseline for comparing remote methods, and no research using high definition video as a live interactive method. OBJECTIVE: To compare in-person consultations with store-and-forward and live interactive methods, the latter having two levels of image quality. METHODS: A controlled study was conducted where patients were examined in-person, by high definition video, and by store-and-forward methods...

Previous American Telemedicine Association (ATA) Teledermatology Practice Guidelines were issued in 2007. This updated version reflects new knowledge in the field, new technologies, and the need to incorporate teledermatology practice in a variety of settings, including hospitals, urgent care centers, Federally Qualified Health Centers, school-based clinics, public health facilities, and patient homes.

Teledermatology (TD) is an emerging modality for providing remote dermatologic care with high diagnostic and management 25 concordance compared to face-to-face clinic dermatology. TD training among dermatology residency programs in the United 26 States has not been characterized. We disseminated a survey to all dermatology residents at ACGME accredited programs in the 27 United States to explore the prevalence and distribution of TD training and trainee perceptions of TD. One hundred out of a 28 potential 1170 responses (RR 8...

The Integrated Health Area "Barcelona Esquerra" (Área Integral de Salud de Barcelona Esquerra - AIS-BE), which covers a population of 524,000 residents in Barcelona city, is running a project to improve healthcare quality and efficiency based on co-ordination between the different suppliers in its area through the participation of their professionals. Endowed with an Organisational Model that seeks decision-taking that starts out from clinical knowledge and from Information Systems tools that facilitate this co-ordination (an interoperability platform and a website) it presents important results in its structured programmes that have been implemented such as the Reorganisation of Emergency Care, Screening for Colorectal Cancer, the Onset of type 2 Diabetes Mellitus, Teledermatology and the Development of Cross-sectional Healthcare Policies for Care in Chronicity...

Direct-to-consumer teledermatology is radically changing the way some patients obtain dermatologic care. Many direct-to-consumer teledermatology services offer care to patients younger than 18 years, but policies and standards are nonuniform. For pediatric patients, direct-to-consumer teledermatology is a substantial departure from in-person care. More consensus, standards, and guidelines are necessary.

INTRODUCTION: Cutaneous melanoma is a significant cause of mortality, and since the skin is easily accessible for inspection, it is amenable to interventions of education and promotion of early diagnosis through the use of telemedicine systems. METHODS: Clicca il neo is a programme for the early diagnosis of skin cancer employing tools of teledermatology with a store-and-forward modality. The system uses a web form for data collection and upload of skin photographs taken by users...

OBJECTIVES: There is no systematic review on economic evaluations of telemedicine in Japan, despite over 1000 trials implemented. Our systematic review aims to examine whether Japan's telemedicine is cost-saving or cost-effective, examine the methodological rigorousness of the economic evaluations, and discuss future studies needed to improve telemedicine's financial sustainability. METHODS: We searched five databases, including two Japanese databases, to find peer-reviewed articles published between January 1, 2000 and December 31, 2014 in English and Japanese that performed economic evaluations of Japan's telemedicine programs...

INTRODUCTION: In France, 66% of patients forego getting specialized care by dermatologists because of difficulty obtaining appointments. Store-and-forward teledermatology could improve how promptly treatment begins by reducing the delay in obtaining a specialist's opinion. In this study, we compared the delay before care between general practitioners (GPs) using a store-and-forward teledermatology intervention and GPs addressing their patients with a standard referral letter. METHODS: We performed an open-label, pragmatic cluster-randomized controlled trial with two parallel arms...

INTRODUCTION: Teledermatology has proven to be an effective means of providing dermatologic care. The existing research has primarily evaluated its usefulness in a consultative model. Few academic centers have evaluated a patient-initiated model, and direct-to-consumer services remain the subject of controversy. Stanford Health Care recently launched a direct-care, patient-initiated teledermatology pilot program. This article evaluates the viability and patient satisfaction with this service...

INTRODUCTION: This study, through a systematic review and meta-analysis, has sought to demonstrate that the opportunity cost is a value to take into account in studies of economic cost in telemedicine, illustrated through the time of the dermatologist's consultation in teledermatology and traditional consultation. METHODS: Economic evaluation studies have been identified that compare teledermatology and traditional dermatological consultation during the period 1998-2015...

BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVES: Patients should be monitored post-laser resurfacing for reassurance and the early detection of adverse events. Smartphone monitoring in the post-laser resurfacing setting is an efficient and convenient tool that is well accepted by patients and dermatologists. The objective was to identify the benefits and barriers of, and patient attitudes towards, smartphone monitoring in the post-laser resurfacing setting. METHODS: A retrospective audit of 123 laser resurfacing patients was undertaken to determine the characteristics of this population...

IMPORTANCE: Evidence supports use of teleconsultation for improving patient access to dermatology. However, little is known about the quality of rapidly expanding direct-to-consumer (DTC) telemedicine websites and smartphone apps diagnosing and treating skin disease. OBJECTIVE: To assess the performance of DTC teledermatology services. DESIGN AND PARTICIPANTS: Simulated patients submitted a series of structured dermatologic cases with photographs, including neoplastic, inflammatory, and infectious conditions, using regional and national DTC telemedicine websites and smartphone apps offering services to California residents...

Effective business models for teledermatology must be implemented to make the practice a feasible option for dermatologists to deliver care. This study sought to detect and report types of teledermatology business models in practice. We interviewed 19 private and academic dermatologists who have been reimbursed for teledermatology services. Most respondents described teledermatology business models fitting 4 categories-standard fee-for-service reimbursement from insurance, capitated service contracts, per-case service contracts, and direct to consumer-which are described in this article...
