by Kaur, Swarnpreet, M.S., California State University, Long Beach, 2016, 55; 10046244
Abstract (Summary)

DermAccess is an emerging company that will provide teledermatology services to the rural health clinics (RHC) in California. The concept of DermaAccess is to provide access to specialty care for patients that reside in rural areas. This allows RHCs to provide healthcare services at a wider range, which improves the efficiency, affordability, and quality of care. RHCs will purchase a high-resolution camera and a monthly subscription to an online portal from DermaAccess. It allows them to have access to a dermatologist who will also have a monthly subscription to the online portal to access patient information.

Currently, the market size of telederamtology includes 271 RHCs in California. Whereas, the competition includes only one other company in California focused on similar concept as DermaAccess. This provides an early opportunity for DermaAccess to respond to the rapidly growing demand of increasing healthcare access, as the competition is likely to grow.
