Directderm for Health Systems

With DirectDerm, you can offer your patients and employees quick, easy access to highly qualified, board-certified dermatologists, despite the fact that the national shortage of dermatologists has left many communities and hospitals struggling to meet demand for quality skin care. Here are some ways that DirectDerm benefits health systems like yours:

  • DirectDerm dermatologists work with your hospital and clinic teams to expand your dermatology coverage, offering timely, convenient consultations and follow-up care.
  • Patients and health care providers can access DirectDerm at any time, from any place – urban, rural or in between.
  • DirectDerm also serves as a referral source and a partner in the coordination and continuity of patient care.
  • With timely, accurate diagnoses, pharmacy charges are reduced – a major benefit for employers, employees and patients.
  • One health plan realized a 65 percent reduction in cost per case after contracting with DirectDerm.
  • For serious concerns, such as skin cancers, early diagnosis is crucial. Getting answers in hours instead of weeks or months protects patient health and reduces your risks and costs.
