Use of Solution
DermoSight Clients can range from both public to private and include a multitude of different establishments. From pharmacies, NHS and private GP surgeries, employee benefit programmes, occupational health and many more.
The main difference between public and private clients is the many different referral pathways. We are able to adhere to your individual needs.
Our ultimate goal is to utilise technology to promote the early detection of skin cancer and skin diseases, saving time, money and most importantly people’s lives around the world. This will minimise the number of unnecessary biopsies and missed cases of Malignant Melanoma.
DermoSight is recommended for use by GPs and practice nurses prior to referring any patient with a suspect skin lesion to secondary care under the urgent 2 week wait rule. DermoSight allows GPs to access to a remote dermatology service, improving patient results and care.
The service also ensures compliance with NICE Guidelines [NG14], which recommend that all pigmented skin lesions that are referred for investigation should be assessed ‘using dermoscopy carried out by healthcare professionals trained in this technique.’
Several teledermatology solutions enable easy capturing, store and forward of images taken by a mobile phone to get a doctor’s assessment for treatment advice. A teledermoscopy solution like DermoSight not only provides the clinical image, but also a high quality dermatoscopic image, enabling the specialist to determine whether a lesion is suspicious for cancer or not.
