Traditionally, teledermatology services were “store-and-forward” services, where you have to send photos of your patient and await a response.
The amount of information provided would be limited, and Dermatologists couldn’t ask the relevant questions or discuss the condition with the patient, so there would be back-and-forth discussions between GP and specialist. Dermo Direct is an easy way for GPs to get specialist support for their patients.
The appointment takes place in real-time between dermatologist and patient, with the patient at home or a location of their choice
We’ve performed consultations with patients at a remote work site, at home, in a caravan park, in an office, even in a parked car, using a mobile phone or tablet.
If your patient would like you to be present at the consultation, they can book the appointment for a time that suits you both and the video appointment can take place in your practice, or they can share their email video link with you
