Teledermatology enables efficient patient triage
Dermatology Times
Dr. Timothy Abrahamson, a dermatologist based in Des Moines, Iowa, has used standard telemedicine for patients, patients who would otherwise not be seen by a dermatologist in the inpatient setting.

Telemedicine's role in the childhood burn care
Dermatology Times
When it comes to burn patients, particularly children, recovery is ongoing because skin can't grow and change as quickly as the body develops. Skin is a vital organ and is the first line of sensation and defense against external factors. It's the body's heating and cooling system. But when skin is severely burned, it loses much of that function and requires reconstructive surgeries, rehabilitation, tissue expansion, pressure garments and ongoing check-ups. It's because of this extensive and time consuming treatment that Shriners has been one of the first hospital networks in the country to employ telemedicine practices.
