The group has partnered with Iagnosis, Inc. to give patients convenient access to the practice's dermatology specialists
Tampa, FL, December 14, 2016 (Newswire.com) - Academic Alliance in Dermatology has partnered with Iagnosis, which is the nation’s largest teledermatology-focused platform provider, to now deliver high-quality, convenient online dermatology visits to patients in the greater Tampa Bay area thanks to telehealth technology.
Both new and existing patients can immediately start to use the online service to conduct an appointment-free visit with two of the practice’s board-certified dermatologists or one of its physician assistants. Through the online visit, the patient will receive a diagnosis and personalized treatment plan for any of 3,000-plus medical conditions affecting the skin, hair, or nails. Patients only need Internet access and a device for taking digital photos of their problem issue.
The practice will also use the teledermatology solution for conducting certain post-procedural follow-up visits to visually assess wound healing, without the need for those surgical patients to come in to the office for each checkup.
Dr. Panos E. Vasiloudes, board-certified dermatologist and pediatrician, as well as owner of Academic Alliance in Dermatology, said, “We are very excited to add another avenue for patients to get the dermatologic care they need, when they need it, while ensuring high quality standards. Telehealth is rising in popularity, and we are confident that the technology approach we have chosen will ensure a strong provider-patient relationship while satisfying the need for convenient access to care.”
To use the service, patients simply visit http://www.tampadermatology.com/teledermatology to start an online visit, or they can download the new Academic Alliance in Dermatology mobile app from the App Store or on Google Play™.
Here’s how it works:
· An online dermatology visit guides a patient through several simple steps of creating a profile, collecting medical history and uploading photos of their problem condition. There is no need to schedule a video conference; the patient simply submits their information.
· The patient selects the Academic Alliance in Dermatology care provider they prefer to review their case, and that provider responds with a diagnosis, personalized treatment plan and any prescription orders sent to the patient’s preferred pharmacy. Online visits are typically completed within 24 hours.
· When medically necessary, the patient may be referred for an in-office visit.
· The cost of the online visit is $69.
Parents or guardians can conduct online dermatology visits for children or others in their care.
