[Telemedicine in pediatric dermatology:focus on current practices].

Rev Med Suisse 2019 Mar;15(644):674-677

Unité de dermatologie pédiatrique, Services de pédiatrie et de dermatologie et vénéréologie, CHUV, 1011 Lausanne.

J Telemed Telecare 2018 Oct 9:1357633X18799805. Epub 2018 Oct 9.

1 Department of Dermatology, Stanford School of Medicine, Stanford, CA, USA.

Introduction Teledermatology services that function separately from patients' primary electronic health record (EHR) can lead to fragmented care, poor provider communication, privacy concerns and billing challenges. This study addresses these challenges by developing PhotoCareMD, a store-and-forward (SAF) teledermatology consultation workflow built entirely within an existing Epic-based EHR. Methods Thirty-six primary care physicians (PCPs) from eight outpatient clinics submitted 215 electronic consults (eConsults) for 211 patients to a Stanford Health Care dermatologist via PhotoCareMD.

Long-Range Diagnosis of and Support for Skin Conditions in Field Settings.

Trop Med Infect Dis 2018 Aug 13;3(3). Epub 2018 Aug 13.

Department of Dermatology, Perelman School of Medicine, University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, PA 19104, USA.

Skin diseases are a significant cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide; however, access to dermatology services are critically limited, particularly in low- to middle-income countries (LMIC), where there is an overall shortage of physicians. Implementation of long-range technological support tools has been growing in an effort to provide quality dermatology care to even the most remote settings globally. eHealth strategies can provide realistic healthcare solutions if implemented in a feasible and sensitive way, customizing tools to address the unique needs and resource limitations of the local setting.

'Mind your Moles' study: protocol of a prospective cohort study of melanocytic naevi.

BMJ Open 2018 Sep 19;8(9):e025857. Epub 2018 Sep 19.

Cancer and Population Studies, QIMR Berghofer Medical Research Institute, Brisbane, Queensland, Australia.

Introduction: Having many melanocytic naevi or 'moles' on the skin is the strongest predictor of melanoma; thus, much can be learnt from investigating naevi in the general population. We aim to improve the understanding of the epidemiology and biology of naevi by conducting a 3-year prospective study of melanocytic naevi in adults.

Methods And Analysis: This is a population-based cohort study of melanocytic naevi in 200 adults aged 20-69 years recruited via the Australian electoral roll. 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

Increasing Access to High Value Care: Preventing Complications in Common Disorders.

Telemed J E Health 2018 Aug 10. Epub 2018 Aug 10.

1 Department of Dermatology, University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health , Madison, Wisconsin.

Most infantile hemangiomas (IHs), the most common vascular tumors of childhood, evolve without complications; however 10% to 12% require specialty referral for treatment. To emphasize the complications of late referral, we present a case of necrotizing infection within a segmental IH leading to sepsis. Early evaluation by a pediatric dermatologist could have prevented this life-threatening and disfiguring complication. Read More

Teledermatology scale-up frameworks: a structured review and critique.

BMC Health Serv Res 2018 08 7;18(1):613. Epub 2018 Aug 7.

Department of TeleHealth, Nelson R. Mandela School of Medicine, University of KwaZulu-Natal, Durban, South Africa.

Background: The South African public health sector embarked on a National Telemedicine System implementation program in 1999 and although unsuccessful, the Province of KwaZulu-Natal subsequently implemented teledermatology in 2003, with two currently active services (synchronous and asynchronous). Although sustained these have not been scaled-up to meet the needs of all hospitals in the Province. A recent teledermatology scale-up design requirements elicitation process within KwaZulu-Natal confirmed the need for a framework, and identified requirements through key stakeholders, programme observations, the literature, and experts.
