High definition live interactive and store and forward teledermatology: initial qualitative observations.
Initial qualitative findings from a study of uncompressed and compressed high definition live interactive video, and store and forward teledermatology (photographs and written histories for later review) are presented. Quantitative data collected in the study are still being compiled and analyzed comparing diagnostic concordance and confidence with in-person exams. The early qualitative findings suggest bifurcated patient and physician preferences for the different remote exam methods.
