1:00pm – 2:00pm: Libbey Chuy Training on Tele-dermatology

Tele dermatology is a new service provided through the same platform as the tele-ophthalmology program at AUCH. It is a simple, user friendly platform for providers to take a photo (a smartphone or any camera that can upload images to a computer) and submit the photo with basic demographic and clinical information to a contracted Dermatologist for a consultation and recommendation. This is an easy, cost effective way to provide fast and reliable dermatology services and recommendations for community health center clinicians and their patients. This training will demonstrate the platform capacities and processes for your clinical team to begin providing dermatology services in your center without relying on outside referrals to dermatologists. This service is available to any Utah health center interested in participating.
