SkyMD Inc announces the full-scale rollout of its teledermatology platform SkyMD.

The web-based platform is available from any smartphone, tablet, or desktop, or via Android, and is designed to connect dermatologists to their patients and diagnose or treat them remotely.

SkyMD works by first connecting with the physician securely via smartphone, tablet, or computer. Then, patients are advised to complete a questionnaire and upload photos of their condition. Patients then receive a personalized treatment plan, and prescriptions are digitally routed to their nearby pharmacist.

Common skin, hair, and nail conditions that can be diagnosed or treated via SkyMD include acne, cold sores, dandruff, excessive sweating, eyelash thinning, hair loss, nail issues, rash, rosacea, skin aging, skin discoloration, and skin lesion.

“When a patient receives information from a physician online, they are more likely to trust the source and act upon that information regardless of the legal disclaimers surrounding it. Any platform connecting doctors and patients online should therefore adhere to a common standard of care,” says Eric Price, co-founder and chief executive officer of SkyMD, who developed the technology, in a media release.

“The SkyMD platform was designed by a team of board-certified dermatologists and tested within their own practices with this guiding principle in mind,” he adds.

The release notes that physicians using the platform have been able to treat 90% of their SkyMD cases without the need for further in-person evaluation and have reduced their treatment time by more than 75%.
