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.
