Store-and-forward teledermatology impact on diagnosis, treatment and dermatology referrals: Comparison between practice settings.

J Telemed Telecare 2020 May 23:1357633X20925269. Epub 2020 May 23.

Cleveland Clinic Lerner College of Medicine, Case Western Reserve University, USA.

Introduction: Store-and-forward (SAF) teledermatology involves non-dermatologists sending clinical images to dermatologists. This improves patient care while reducing unwarranted face-to-face (FTF) specialist office visits. Comparisons between dermatologist diagnostic concordance with referring provider, treatment change recommendations, and FTF referrals have yet to be compared by type of provider and practice setting.

Teledermatology and its Current Perspective.

Indian Dermatol Online J 2020 Jan-Feb;11(1):12-20. Epub 2020 Jan 13.

CEO Derma Source, Gurugram, India.

Teledermatology is one of the most important and commonly employed subsets of telemedicine, a special alternative to face-to-face (FTF) doctor--patient consultation that refers to the use of electronic telecommunication tools to facilitate the provision of healthcare between the "seeker" and "provider." It is used for consultation, education, second opinion, and monitoring medical conditions. This article will review basic concepts, the integration of noninvasive imaging technique images, artificial intelligence, and the current ethical and legal issues. Read More

Clinical effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of teledermatology: Where are we now, and what are the barriers to adoption?

J Am Acad Dermatol 2020 Jul 5;83(1):299-307. Epub 2020 Feb 5.

Department of Dermatology, University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

There has been rapid growth in teledermatology over the past decade, and teledermatology services are increasingly being used to support patient care across a variety of care settings. Teledermatology has the potential to increase access to high-quality dermatologic care while maintaining clinical efficacy and cost-effectiveness. Recent expansions in telemedicine reimbursement from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) ensure that teledermatology will play an increasingly prominent role in patient care.

The growth of teledermatology: Expanding to reach the underserved.

J Am Acad Dermatol 2020 Apr 4;82(4):1025-1033. Epub 2019 Dec 4.

Center for Dermatology, Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, Somerset, New Jersey; Department of Dermatology, Weill Cornell Medicine, New York, New York.

The regulation of telemedicine in the United States is evolving, with new legislation expanding reimbursement and cross-state licensing capabilities. As telemedicine grows, communities with limited access to traditional dermatologic care may find a solution in teledermatology. A search of the medical literature and online health care law resources published within the past decade was performed to assess the current status of telemedicine availability, health record integration and security, reimbursement policy, and licensure requirements in the United States, with a focus on teledermatology.

Digit Health 2019 Jan-Dec;5:2055207619828225. Epub 2019 Feb 6.

Dermatology Research Centre, The University of Queensland, The University of Queensland Diamantina Institute, Brisbane, Queensland, Australia.

Objective: The aim of the study is to evaluate healthcare practitioners' views on and satisfaction with (i) digital image acquisition and storage and (ii) store-and-forward teledermoscopy services for the diagnosis of skin cancer in their clinical practice.

Methods: An online survey was conducted among 59 healthcare practitioners (GPs (=17), dermatologists (=22), dermatology registrars (=18), a dermatology research fellow (=1) and a plastic surgeon (=1)) to assess usability of digital image acquisition and storage for when the imaging process is conducted by the healthcare practitioners themselves, or by their patients.

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

Department of Dermatology, University Hospital Heidelberg, University of Heidelberg, Heidelberg, Germany.

A decreasing number of dermatologists and an increasing number of patients in Western countries have led to a relative lack of clinicians providing expert dermatologic care. This, in turn, has prolonged wait times for patients to be examined, putting them at risk. Store-and-forward teledermatology improves patient access to dermatologists through asynchronous consultations, reducing wait times to obtain a consultation. Read More

Recent trends in teledermatology and teledermoscopy.

Dermatol Pract Concept 2018 Jul 31;8(3):214-223. Epub 2018 Jul 31.

Dermatology Research Centre, The University of Queensland Diamantina Institute, Translational Research Institute, Brisbane, Australia.

Teledermatology is a useful alternative where specialized dermatological assistance is not available and has been used successfully to support health professionals in a wide range of settings worldwide, in either an asynchronous store-and-forward format or a real-time video conferencing format. Teledermoscopy, which includes dermoscopic images in the teleconsultation, is another addition that improves remote assessments of pigmented lesions. A more recent variant is mobile teledermoscopy, which uses a smartphone to deliver the same type of service. Read More

Position paper: Telemedicine in occupational dermatology - current status and perspectives.

J Dtsch Dermatol Ges 2018 Aug 11;16(8):969-974. Epub 2018 Jul 11.

Department of Dermatology, University Hospital Jena, Jena, Germany.

Teledermatology is the use of telecommunication technologies to exchange medical information for diagnosis, consultation, treatment and teaching in dermatology. While its use has been evaluated in a wide range of dermatological diagnoses, only few studies exist on its validity, diagnostic precision, feasibility, and cost-effectiveness in occupational dermatology. However, these studies show a considerable potential for diagnosis, prevention, treatment support and follow-up of patients with occupational skin diseases. 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

Use of Smartphones for Early Detection of Melanoma: Systematic Review.

J Med Internet Res 2018 04 13;20(4):e135. Epub 2018 Apr 13.

Unit 1232 - Team 2, Centre de Recherche en Cancérologie, French National Institute of Health and Medical Research, Nantes, France.
