Abstrakt

It is beneficial if teledermatology is integrated in an existing structure for optimum utilisation of resources. Teledermatology has been used to redistribute the workload of specialists. Teledermatology provides continuous access to specialist assessment of patients in collaboration with local physicians. Simple store-and-forward teledermatology is well suited for follow-up of patients initially seen by a specialist. Milder cases of some clinically characteristic diseases such as acne are well suited to management through teledermatology. Teledermatology offers the possibility of case-based continued medical education of non-specialists. Teledermatology generally follows the life curve of other successful new organisational models and does not affect demand for health services.
