The National Psoriasis Foundation (NPF) and Iagnosis, a leading develop of DermatologistOnCall, have announced a partnership that will provide accessible teledermatology care to psoriasis patients.

Psoriasis, a chronic autoimmune disease, presently afflicts more than 8 million Americans, with 30 percent of patients also suffering from psoriatic arthritis. The partnership between NPF and Iagnosis will seek to address the shortage of dermatologists that makes it difficult for psoriasis patients to receive specialized treatment.

DermatologistOnCall, an online network of dermatology specialists, will now provide psoriasis patients with accessible, customized care at a special rate. While patients pay an out-of-pocket visit fee, the online dermatology visits are 100 percent HIPAA and HITECH compliant for patient information security.
