Pittsburgh, PA, August 04, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- Iagnosis, Inc., the developer and operator of DermatologistOnCall®, in partnership with Newton Consulting, LLC, announces the launch of a mobile platform for their online dermatology care site, www.dermatologistoncall.com.
“The mobile application will enable our patients to upload diagnostic pictures from their smart phones in a very seamless, fun, and intuitive manner,” said Scott Focer, Chief Operating Officer of Iagnosis, Inc. “Additionally, the mobile app will facilitate direct messaging between dermatologists and their patients as a follow-up to their diagnosis, treatment, and counsel.”
DermatologistOnCall® offers quick and convenient access to quality skin care from board-certified dermatologists through an online, consumer-friendly platform. Patients create a private and secure account where they can submit photographs and descriptions of their condition and receive a response from a board-certified dermatologist within three business days. The visit is concluded with the delivery of a treatment plan that contains the patient’s history, current condition, and a diagnosis provided by the dermatologist, which may include a recommendation for an in-office visit if necessary. Any required prescriptions are sent electronically to the patient’s pharmacy.
Iagnosis leveraged Newton Consulting, LLC, a business strategy and information technology consulting company based in Claysville, Pa, for the design and development of the mobile application available for both the iOS and Android platforms, which is now available in the Apple Store and Google Play.
“Bringing this service to the palms of our clients’ hands allows them access to quality care 24/7, when it’s most convenient for them, without a wait,” said Dr. Mark Seraly of McMurray, Pa., who is the CEO, Chief Medical Officer, and co-founder of Iagnosis. “Innovating in this area is critical to ensure a fun, easy, and intuitive experience for our customers, and it gives them quick access to technology that complements our user experience quite well.”
“Newton Consulting has been a strategic technology partner with Iagnosis over the past year to launch their flagship product, DermatologistOnCall®,” said Phil Kossler, Newton Consulting’s Application Development Practice Leader. “We’re excited to see the evolution of this business from concept to launch. We participated in the traditional web application development as well as the first release of their mobile presence,” he said.
“Newton Consulting will continue to partner with Iagnosis in their efforts to offer innovative, creative, and efficient mobile experiences for both patients and dermatologists that simplify the activities surrounding teledermatology,” Kossler said.
