THE ONLINE CONSULTATION DOES NOT SUBSTITUTE OR PRETEND TO REPLACE THE PRESENTIAL VISIT WITH THE DERMATOLOGIST.
Online dermatological consultation or teledermatology is a technique that has been in development for relatively few years and that has proven useful in terms of effectiveness, comfort, cost reduction for the patient . It has been shown that teledermatology has a fairly high diagnostic efficiency of 80-90%, compared to the physical face-to-face visit with the dermatologist, and that it is more useful in isolated lesions or cutaneous tumors than in extensive dermatoses. It has also been very useful in the review of patients with diagnoses already made.
However, the online consultation has disadvantages regarding the physical consultation with the dermatologist who can better examine the skin, touch it, appreciate small details of certain injuries, perform a better directed history, etc. Therefore, the diagnostic sensitivity of the online consultation is lower than the actual visit of the patient, and there may be mistakes in the online diagnosis by images. For this reason, our diagnostic orientation will have these limitations and for this reason we recommend always the subsequent face-to-face visit with a dermatologist who confirms our diagnosis and performs an adequate follow-up of the pathology.
As discussed above and once exposed the limitations of the diagnostic and therapeutic possibilities of the online consultation, its possible advantages and disadvantages, I DECLARE:
- THAT I HAVE UNDERSTOOD THE EXPLANATION AND UNDERSTAND THE LIMITATIONS OF TELEDERMATOLOGY, AND THAT SUCH CONSULTATION WILL SERVE TO GIVE A DIAGNOSTIC ORIENTATION THAT SHOULD BE CONFIRMED WITH A DERMATOLOGIST OF A PRESENTIAL FORM.
- THAT I CONSENT TO THE PROCESSING OF MY PERSONAL DATA, INCLUDING THE PHOTOGRAPHS THAT I INCLUDE IN THE MEDICAL FORM, IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE ORGANIC LAW OF 15/1999 OF DECEMBER 13 OF PROTECTION OF PERSONAL DATA (LOPD).
- THAT ALL THE DATA EXPRESSED IN THE FORM ARE CERTAIN AND I ACCEPT AND CONSENT TO THE CONDUCT OF ONLINE CONSULTATION WITH SKINDOCTORONLINE.NET IN THE EXPRESSED TERMS.
