The dermatology field is experiencing significant changes in the way services are offered to patients and also how professionals perform daily routines.
FREMONT, CA: Just like many other fields, dermatology has undergone serious changes in the last decade by inventing new technologies. Among the changes is the adoption of electronic medical records (EMR) software that supports telemedicine services. Here's a look at the latest trend in the dermatology field that revolutionizing the way practices are offered to patients.
Technology advancement and change
1. Improved connectivity in EMR software
Incorporating technological advancement in dermatology has constituted the power behind many changes experienced in the field. Since its introduction, the EMR software has contributed to consolidated practice management. Besides, remote accessibility and compatibility among a large number of platforms will still remain strong hindrances towards operative workflows.
Cloud-based EMRs in the United States offer encrypted remote-accessibility for medical history management and sharing, helping streamline workflows to effectively serve the patients.
2. Applied teledermatology services
Enhanced connections have made the telemedicine services easily accessible, affordable for an expanded range of underserved patients. It is well estimated that the American telehealth market has developed in remote areas.
3. Increased AI-powered clinical decision support tools
A brand new stream of rapid advances in artificial intelligence (AI) in the dermatology field with a particular focus on dermoscopy imaging for advanced analysis. Intelligent algorithms make use of refined searching and comparison capabilities based on content-based image retrieval (CBIR) as a support tool for enhanced clinical decisions. The software equipped with AI features, such as DermEngine, can as well assist in large scale image analysis such as full-body imaging (FBI) for the simultaneous localization and proper tracking of a large number of moles.
Brand new trends modeling dermatology field
The availability of new resources to mingle and connect patients with medical practices has shifted the conception of how they attain care. Particularly with the high expansion of teledermatology services, studies report a vast majority of patients in the United States to be interested in obtaining digital healthcare services.
