StoreForward Dermatology

StoreForward Dermatology, or Teledermatology, expedites the assessment and diagnosis of skin conditions for patients of the Kingston Family Health Team requiring a dermatology assessment.  A collaboration with Ontario dermatologists registered with OTN (Ontario Telemedicine Network), the program has significantly reduced wait times for dermatology consults.

How does it work?

  • An appointment is booked with a Kingston Family Health Team Registered Nurse (RN) trained on StoreForward Dermatology.
  • Photos of the skin condition are taken by the RN and forwarded over the secure OTN network to the dermatologist.
  • The dermatologist will review the photos and provide a report to the family physician, normally within a week.  The report includes an assessment of the condition as well as recommendations for care/treatment.

A referral from your healthcare provider is required to access the service.

Appointments for StoreForward Dermatology are held at the Centennial location.
