Snapmed to join hands with Alivia to launch a digital dermatologist service in Sweden
With the advent of new digital skin services, patients can take pictures of their skin condition through their mobile cameras and have their questions answered through a specialist doctor. The doctors analyze their skin condition through the images and give out a written personal statement and a medical recommendation from the dermatologist who investigated the case.
Taking a step further to ensure with this technology is the news of healthcare company Alivia collaborating with Snapmed, a Norwegian company to launch a digital dermatologist service in Sweden. This service is aimed at making it easier for patients to quickly, safely, and easily get a statement of their skin condition. Patients can access Snapmed's care through three simple steps:
1. Patients are requested to enter a few details including the skin condition they are facing
2. Patients can then submit photos of the skin condition that they are suffering from or opt for a video consultation
3. Once paid for, a dermatologist will assess the condition and respond within 24 hours
With over 12% of the calls received by a general physician pertaining to skin problems, there has always been a dire need for practitioners to investigate and diagnose skin changes. Snapmed is harnessing technology to be at the forefront of fast dermatology consulting without any worries.
Kent Andersson, CEO of Alivia also stated that the experience from Norway shows that up to 90% of the patients are helped digitally, but if there is a need, the patient can be referred to a specialist for further action. The service will charge around SEK 395 for an assessment.
Alivia is a prominent healthcare provider that specializes in Cancer care. With its Cancer care insurance linked to the business, Alivia can ensure the services are available to most people. Alivia's vision is to provide people with access to the best knowledge available in Cancer care to ensure good quality of life.
