Advanced Dermatology and Cosmetic Surgery (ADCS), the largest integrated group of dermatology practices in the U.S. with over 150 locations, and the leading teledermatology platform provider Iagnosis, Inc., today announced a partnership that is now delivering high-quality, convenient online dermatology care to patients in Florida.
While initially available in Florida, ADCS plans over the coming year to expand use of the Iagnosis teledermatology platform to the 13 other states where ADCS locations are found.
Dr. Matt Leavitt, founder of ADCS and board-certified dermatologist, said: “Our new online dermatology offering to patients not only keeps pace with trends in tele-healthcare and consumer demand for greater scheduling flexibility, but it ensures that patients get the most appropriate care for their condition. With dermatology being such a visual specialty area, online visits using digital photos work extremely well and we are very excited to offer our dermatology medical care through this option.”
Both new and existing patients in Florida can select one of the ADCS available dermatology specialists through the new online visit service, without the need for an appointment. Through the online visit, the patient will receive a diagnosis and personalized treatment plan for medical conditions affecting the skin, hair, or nails. Patients only need Internet access and a device for taking digital photos of their problem issue.
To use the service, patients simply go to https://advancedderm.com/online-virtual-visits to start an online visit, or they can download the ADCS dermatology mobile app from the App Store or on Google Play™.
Here’s how it works:
- An online ADCS dermatology visit guides patients through several simple steps of creating a patient profile, collecting some 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 which ADCS 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 in 24 hours.
- When medically necessary, the patient may be referred for an in-office visit.
- The cost of the online visit is $59.
Parents or guardians can conduct online dermatology visits for children or others in their care. More than 3,000 conditions can be reviewed through online visits, with the most common cases including acne, rashes, eczema, rosacea, psoriasis, toenail fungus, suspicious moles, melanoma and other skin cancers.
Advanced Dermatology and Cosmetic Surgery’s online visit solution is enabled through a partnership with Iagnosis, the largest provider of a teledermatology-exclusive platform currently used by more than 200 board-certified dermatologists across the U.S. The solution is compliant with HIPAA and HITECH online healthcare information standards for patient data security.
“Patient safety and satisfaction are of paramount importance to us, even in a tele-health setting, and we believe we have an excellent platform to offer this service,” added Dr. Leavitt.
“We are very excited to announce this partnership with Advanced Dermatology and Cosmetic Surgery, which has shown tremendous leadership and innovation in the dermatology field. Adding a teledermatology service is another example of their commitment to make care even more convenient for patients,” said Dave Zynn, Chief Executive Officer of Iagnosis.
