SkinIO, a digital mole-mapping system, announceS SkinIO Teledermatology, a new platform that allows dermatologists to capture high-quality photos from patients to enable the best possible remote dermatological care.

SkinIO Teledermatology can be used by itself as a store-and-forward solution or in combination with real-time telehealth appointments.

“There is a need for high quality photos to be able to accurately treat patients, especially as patients continue to receive remote care because of the COVID-19 crisis,” says Jean-Christophe Lapiere, MD, the founder and Chief Medical Officer of SkinIO and a leading expert in treating skin cancer, in a media release.

“I need to be able to see the mole or lesion that I am concerned about in greater detail than a video-consultation allows. This solution allows my patients to submit images of their skin through the SkinIO app, which I review to determine the necessary next steps. Then I follow-up either through the SkinIO app or through a real-time video interaction. This is the only way I feel that I am able to effectively treat my patients when I cannot see them face-to-face.”

Lapiere notes that while many dermatological concerns can wait a few months, a concerning mole is something that needs to be addressed right away. Waiting even a few months can dramatically alter the prognosis for melanoma.

SkinIO Teledermatology is a HIPAA-compliant system that is cloud-based and encrypted for security. For more information, visit SkinIO.
