Teledermatology App Teams Up with Dermatologists

October 2, 2014

A new teledermatology app is partnering with board- and state-certified dermatologists to assist patients with on-the-spot information regarding the detection and evaluation of skin disease in early stages. Having launched already in 13 states, Klara has partnered up with Dr. Mark Kaufmann, MD, Associate Professor at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York, and Dr. Chris Adigun, MD, Assistant Professor at NYU Langone Medical Center. According to the company, the app offers secure and private communication via smartphone between dermatologists and patients and is user-friendly for both parties. Using the Klara app, prospective patients photograph their skin problem, upload photos and answer a quick, yet thorough questionnaire developed by university clinics and leading dermatologists. The information is sent for review via a secure and HIPAA compliant channel to Klara's participating dermatologists. Download of the Klara app is free, and consultations start at $39.
