Summary Teledermatology allows a dermatologist to diagnose a wide range of conditions via the communications industry, thus allowing a specialist to review a patient's condition from miles away while minimizing time and travel. This book focuses on the practical aspects of teledermatology implementation while providing a comprehensive treatment of the topic. Discussions include: business models and reimbursement issues; the current status of teledermatology research; the integration of teledermatology into dermatology residency training programs; ethical considerations; confidentiality issues; and the “art of teledermatology.” It explores the technical aspects of teledermatology and describes the differences between live interactive techniques and store and forward techniques. It provides both novice and seasoned teledermatologists with comprehensive and practical information. Many of the chapter authors are among the world experts in teledermatology and have developed successful and viable programs. The knowledge presented here is based on the lessons they have learned in the course of teledermatology development
