Outpatient teledermatology

eDerma is used in secondary care dermatology to run an intermediate teledermatology service, ie for triaging and to replace face to face consultations.

The customised digital platform increases the efficiency and efficacy of secondary care dermatology departments particularly in the management of two week wait referrals, whilst adhering to the UK quality standards for teledermatology, to the UK skin photography guidance, and to NICE guidance.

Preliminary data show zero skin cancer breaches, reduction in agency doctor expenditure to deal with the increasing workload generated by two week wait referrals, and better management of skin biopsy lists.

Inpatient teledermatology

With its customised digital platform for skin lesion and non-skin lesion referrals, eDerma is used successfully for triaging and to replace face-to-face consultations for inpatient referrals.

This enables secondary care dermatology departments to continue to provide high levels of inpatient activity with existing substantive members of staff.

It is invaluable for dermatology departments based outside acute hospitals, but can also be used by departments based within acute hospitals. Dermatology consultants can provide instant specialist opinions asynchronously and remotely.

Community teledermatology

eDerma can be used to run teledermatology hubs in the community. The high end customised digital platform used with ease by trained nurses delivers high quality information to secondary care dermatology clinicians thus enabling fast and accurate dermatology assessments.

Additional key elements of eDerma including trackability, self auditing, and referrer feedback contribute to the continuous improvement in service provision.
