The Teledermatology program is currently being utilized at five medical centers – Brooke Army Medical Center (Texas), Dwight David Eisenhower Army Medical Center (Georgia), Landstuhl Army Medical Center (Germany), Madigan Army Medical Center (Washington), Walter Reed Army Medical Center (Washington, DC). Carl R. Darnall Army Medical Center is part of the Brooke Army Medical Center Teledermatology program.
Using a web based application, teledermatology allows providers to deliver the highest level of dermatological care to their patients while improving patients' access to dermatologists.
How it works:
The actual teledermatology process begins when your health care provider examines your skin. If you have a skin condition, your provider generates a consultation or referral for Dermatology. The Dermatology Consult Manager arranges an appointment. At the appointment, the consult manager captures images of the skin condition with a digital camera. and collects clinical information for the dermatologist. Images and information are transmitted to dermatologists at participating medical centers. Dermatologists review the images and clinical information, then sends the diagnosis and recommendations to your provider. Your provider then contacts you for follow–up.
The TRISERVICE Teledermatology Program has completed hundreds of dermatology consults. Patients who have already received dermatology care through this program are very satisfied.
Ask your doctor about teledermatology and how we can deliver the best dermatological care to you. You may also walk in to the Dermatology Clinic on the first floor of Darnall between the hours of 8 a.m. – noon (12 p.m.) and 1 – 4 p.m. if you have a dermatology consult from your provider.
