Abstract

In this retrospective review, the authors describe the first 12 months of Waikato Teledermatology, a low-cost, secure, website-based, store-and-forward teledermatology network using the Collegium Telemedicus platform. They conclude that it "... proved an effective and acceptable approach to improving patient access to dermatologic services".
