Iagnosis, in partnership with Newton Consulting, has launched a mobile platform for its online dermatology care site, www.dermatologistoncall.com. The site offers online access to board-certified dermatologists. Patients create a private and secure account where they can submit photographs and descriptions of their condition and receive a response from a dermatologist within three business days. The visit concludes with the delivery of a treatment plan containing the patient's history, current condition and diagnosis by the dermatologist, which may include a recommendation for an in-office visit if necessary. Required prescriptions are sent electronically to the patient's pharmacy.
“The mobile application will enable our patients to upload diagnostic pictures from their smart phones in a very seamless, fun and intuitive manner," said Scott Focer, COO of Iagnosis. "Additionally, the mobile app will facilitate direct messaging between dermatologists and their patients as a follow-up to their diagnosis, treatment, and counsel."
