Doctors in all fields are trying to keep up with the technological advances that seem to be made daily in the health care industry. For dermatologists, managing practices and patient records, along with their digital images, can be so time consuming that there is little time to actually care for patients. Meeting compliance and ensuring security also have become more difficult for dermatologists, who see patients of nearly every age.
More importantly, dermatologists face greater challenges in caring for their patients today, as skin cancer is the most common form of all cancers. The American Cancer Society reports that “the rates of melanoma have been rising for at least 30 years” and is “one of the most common cancers in young adults (especially young women).” It is crucial for dermatologists to be able to see and care for patients now, more than ever before. That’s why Direct Capital has compiled this list of the top tech tools for dermatologists. We hope to make your daily tasks, practice management processes, and electronic health record (EHR) and electronic medical records (EMR) management processes run more smoothly and efficiently so that you can get down to the business of helping patients lead long, healthy lives.
Note: The tools and platforms are not listed in order of quality or importance. At Direct Capital, we used a numbering system so it’s easier to refer back should you want to share the list with someone else and point out a specific tool or platform. In any case, the numbers should be considered a point of reference only and not an implication that #1 is better than #50.
