Video case study
‘Transforming Healthcare Through Innovation’
The Teledermatology Project in Dorset, which is commissioned by Dorset CCG, is having a really positive impact on patient care. Clinicians are able to use the PhotoSAF feature on the Consultant Connect App, alongside e-RS, to get quicker specialist Advice & Guidance on dermatology cases.
This short video, about the Teledermatology Project, features interviews with local GPs, consultants and a commissioner.
- The App was introduced to Dorset in September 2018.
- Over 90% of GP practices signed up to the App.
- 4,500 photographs taken via the App.
- 60% of submitted cases do not need to be seen by Dermatology Services.
- Local consultant dermatologists aim to respond via e-RS within 48 hours.
