Allure Dermatology and Iagnosis partner to increase access to their patients with concerns or conditions that require a prescription by accepting user-submitted photographs on a HIPAA- and HITECH-compliant website.
Detroit, Michigan, January 13, 2016 (Newswire.com) - Michigan residents who are existing patients of Allure Dermatology can now consult with a board-certified dermatologist online, without visiting one of their 5 offices. Allure Dermatology has collaborated with Iagnosis, a leading technology provider of online dermatology solutions, to launch a mobile app, making it even easier for patients to conduct online visits for dermatological care.
To use the service, patients simply visit www.alluremedicalspa.com or launch the mobile app to provide a brief medical history, information about their condition and upload photos. After review, the dermatologist provides a diagnosis and comprehensive treatment plan, including necessary prescriptions,within 24 hours on average. When medically necessary, the patient will be referred for an in-office visit. Among the more than 3,000 conditions for which patients access the system are acne, rashes, suspicious moles, eczema, rosacea, psoriasis, melanoma and other skin cancers.
"Allure Dermatology prides itself on providing the highest quality service to our patients. With the launch of our mobile app, we can provide this service to more patients, more conveniently."
Dr. Charles Mok, D.O.
“Allure Dermatology prides itself on providing the highest quality service to our patients. With the launch of our mobile app, we can provide this service to more patients, more conveniently,” stated Dr. Charles Mok, D.O. of the Allure Medical Spa group of companies. “Adding this online component to our growing practice in Michigan allows our patients even more access to the skilled providers at Allure Dermatology.”
With a shortage of board-certified dermatologists in the U.S., some patients wait up to three months or longer for in-office appointments. Additionally, of the more than 100 million dermatological conditions and diseases diagnosed each year in the U.S., only 35 million are treated by board-certified dermatologists, while 65 million are treated by primary care physicians, walk-in medical providers or via over-the-counter medications.
“We are excited to partner with a leading-edge group of providers like Allure Dermatology. This mobile app makes it more convenient than ever for patients in Michigan to access a board-certified dermatologist, especially in today’s digital age,” said Dave Zynn, CEO of Iagnosis. “Kids do not have to miss school and parents will not miss work to initiate an online visit for a variety of conditions like acne, rashes or suspicious moles.”
