Teledermatology for diagnosing skin cancer in adults.

Cochrane Database Syst Rev 2018 12 4;12:CD013193. Epub 2018 Dec 4.

Institute of Applied Health Research, University of Birmingham, Birmingham, UK, B15 2TT.

Background: Early accurate detection of all skin cancer types is essential to guide appropriate management and to improve morbidity and survival. Melanoma and squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) are high-risk skin cancers which have the potential to metastasise and ultimately lead to death, whereas basal cell carcinoma (BCC) is usually localised with potential to infiltrate and damage surrounding tissue. Anxiety around missing early curable cases needs to be balanced against inappropriate referral and unnecessary excision of benign lesions. Read More

Teledermatology in the US military: a historic foundation for current and future applications.

Cutis 2018 May;101(5):335;337;345

Center for Skin Diseases and Laser Aesthetics, Coronado, California, USA.

Historically, the US military has utilized centralized store-and-forward (S&F) telemedicine programs for health care providers in remote locations worldwide. In the civilian community, new methods and platforms for teledermatology have been created based largely on those used by the military to maximize access to and the efficiency of health care, including secure direct-to-consumer (DTC) mobile applications for patients, live interactive methods, and integrated S&F platforms for dermatology services within electronic health record (EHR) systems. By incorporating similar innovative teledermatology methods and platforms, the US military health care system may benefit from increased accessibility and productivity. Read More

Telediagnosis with Confocal Microscopy: A Reality or a Dream?

Dermatol Clin 2016 Oct;34(4):505-512

Dermatology Research Centre, Translational Research Institute, School of Medicine, The University of Queensland, 37 Kent Street Woolloongabba QLD 4102, Australia.

Reflectance confocal microscopy (RCM) is becoming more popular among dermatologists aiming to improve their bedside diagnostic accuracy and reduce unnecessary removal of benign cutaneous lesions. With increased interest in the field, limitation of experts, and dedicated training programs, telemedicine application to RCM (teleconfocal) helps to connect patients with experts at a distance. Diagnostic accuracy of store-and-forward telemedicine review of RCM images, patient safety, and cost-effectiveness are important considerations for proper acceptance and usage of the technology in the medical community.

Impact of a store-and-forward teledermatology intervention versus usual care on delay before beginning treatment: A pragmatic cluster-randomized trial in ambulatory care.

J Telemed Telecare 2017 Sep 5;23(8):725-732. Epub 2016 Aug 5.

1 Department of General Medicine, Paris Diderot University, Paris, France.

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.
