Latest Kaiser Permanente Technology Innovation Helps Members Love the Skin They're In

Kaiser Permanente today announced the launch of teledermatology, a virtual service allowing dermatologists to view images of suspicious moles, lesions and rashes via Kaiser Permanente HealthConnect®, their leading edge electronic medical record system.  “Tele-derm” started as a pilot project on Maui and the Big Island and is now available to all Kaiser Permanente patients to improve access to specialists, speed the diagnostic process and improve clinical outcomes.

Through the service, dermatologists review photos sent via secure email server from primary care physicians and determine whether a face-to-face appointment is necessary to further diagnose or treat the condition. The triage process is convenient for patients who do not need to be referred for further care, and leaves more time for specialists to treat patients whose skin problems warrant an in-person visit.
