Abstract:

The project consisted of four major requirements Teledermatology Evaluation, Senior Support Software Upgrades, Teledermatology Quality Assurance Plan JACHO and Clinical Practice Guidelines. The Teledermatology Evaluation consisted of 404 patients, each of whom was seen initially via the Teledermatology System and subsequently by a dermatologist in person. Evaluations from both methodologies were compared and results were presented at the American Telemedicine Association ATA Annual Conference in Phoenix, AZ. The evaluation will be submitted for publication. The Senior Support Software Upgrades requirements incorporated 22 system modifications. The Teledermatology Quality Assurance Plan JACHO requirement identifies, implements and documents measures of the Teledermatology System. The final requirement, Clinical Practice Guidelines, resulted in the production of a Teledermatology Information Web Site outlining such major topics as deployment requirements, lessons learned and preliminary clinical business practices. The Web Site was presented at the ATA Annual Conference.
