Platform Helps Doctors Create Their Own Telemedicine Practice
SkyMD seeks to overcome challenges of healthcare delivery, digitally.
SkyMD is a telemedicine platform that lets dermatologists connect with their patients in a quick and efficient manner. The whole purpose is to save patients from spending a lot of money and wasting time in waiting rooms. At the same time, dermatologists still get paid for their services.
CEO Eric Price decided to build this platform after he witnessed his mother, a dermatologist, deal with lengthy back-and-forth text conversations with patients. He wanted to build a user-friendly platform that also protects the privacy of patients. Thanks to technological advances, smartphone cameras provide a clear enough picture for dermatologists to study and treat the condition even from a distance. All a patient and doctor needs is a computer, tablet or smartphone to have access to SkyMD.
