Would you believe your skin is high-tech? Not involving microchipping or anything like that, but ask any dermatologist and they’ll agree.
Skin is a living organ, needing attention, care and protection. Sometimes skin dries out and needs lotions and moisturizers – which all claim to hydrate skin and form a protective barrier to maintain moisture and preventing dirt and toxins from poking into pores and damaging the dermis.
So, how is technology key to taking care of your skin? Thinking more about it, computers don’t “regenerate” or grow back like skin can when cut or scratched. No, computers need help to maintain efficiency, involving antivirus software or agreements with tech experts to monitor and maintain them to make sure each device is performing at its best operating level. Sometimes this comes with a recommendation to upgrade.
Your skin, in fact, is your greatest barrier as a defense against enemies at the microscopic level – the kind that is invisible to the bare eye. Skin helps you go about your day, move from place to place, with flexibility and ease. Like any other part of the human body, skin can come under attack by foreign bodies, like germs and viruses. Think of the germ like the skin’s version of a cybercriminal – or hacker – and soap as the skin’s antivirus software!
Speaking of skin, dermatologists not only understand technology, you embrace it. Cutting-edge technology is the invisible force that runs every successful dermatology practice. A decade ago, this merely meant migrating from paper patient charts to electronic health records (EHR). To run smoothly, the modern dermatology office takes advantage of updated tech tools – from navigating the insurance claims filing process to patient scheduling and billing, and patient communications. Text messaging, email communications, appointment reminders were foreign (and expensive!) options just a few years ago but are pretty standard today.
Clinical and cosmetic dermatologists alike are incorporating healthcare technology, and the sub-industry of teledermatology is also adopting cutting-edge tech. A patient coming into an office for an appointment and seeing demonstrations of 3D mapping of skin surface to support early detection of melanoma, or a patient electing for laser tattoo removal, and the relatively new cosmetic body sculpting procedures – some of which involve freezing layers of skin in a safe environment – are some of the latest technologic examples in healthcare.
Yes, the field of dermatology is evolving, and so are the options available for patient care. How can you stay competitive?
The reality is, dermatologists know skin and Network Computing Technologies are the team of experts who know tech. Each is highly specialized industries requiring training and hands-on experience to succeed. How success is defined here is the ability to help others, along with helping dermatologists advance a practice to stratospheric success!
