Dr. Natalie H. Daniels, MD at Bella Pelle Dermatology partners with Iagnosis, Inc. to increase access to health care specialists for Kentucky residents with concerns or conditions that require a prescription by accepting user-submitted photographs on a HIPAA- and HITECH-compliant website.
Louisville, KY, January 11, 2016 (Newswire.com) - Kentucky residents can now consult with board-certified dermatologist Dr. Natalie H. Daniels, M.D. at Bella Pelle Dermatology & Cosmetic Laser Center online. Bella Pelle Dermatology collaborated with Iagnosis, a leading technology provider of teledermatology solutions, to launch an online platform including a mobile app, making it even easier for patients to conduct online visits for dermatological care.
To use the service, patients simply visit www.bellapelledermatology.com or download and launch the mobile app to provide a brief medical history, information about their condition and upload photos. After review, Dr. Daniels provides a diagnosis and personalized treatment plan, which includes routing necessary prescriptions to patients’ preferred pharmacies 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.
"We are excited to partner with a full-spectrum practice like Bella Pelle Dermatology. This teledermatology platform makes it more convenient than ever for patients in Kentucky to access a board-certified dermatologist, especially in today's digital age. Children 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."
Dave Zynn, CEO of Iagnosis
“I’m committed to the total health of my patients’ skin. With the launch of this online care, I can extend this commitment to more patients, more conveniently,” stated Dr. Natalie H. Daniels, M.D. “Adding this online component gives my patients more access to care than ever before.”
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.
