GP case study: Teledermatology
GP case study: Teledermatology via the Consultant Connect App
Our Photo Advice & Guidance project in Solihull, which is commissioned by Birmingham and Solihull CCG, is having a really positive impact on patient care. GPs are able to use the PhotoSAF feature on the Consultant Connect App to immediately and securely share dermatology images with a community GPER – benefiting them and improving patient care and experience.
One of the most common questions we encounter when discussing Photo Advice & Guidance is “what do clinicians think about it?” This short video answers that question and features interviews with local GPs and the Community Specialist in Dermatology who receives the photos from GPs via the Consultant Connect App.
