Teledermatology can reduce time to treatment and improve access to specialists. This small randomized controlled trial assessed the accuracy of parent-submitted smartphone photographs for diagnosing pediatric skin conditions compared to in-person dermatology. Teledermatology had high diagnostic accuracy and there was no significant difference when parents were given photography instructions. A previous PSNet interview discussed telemedicine and patient safety.
