New tele-dermatology service launched in Ontario
September 21, 2022
MONTREAL – Oro Health, in partnership with MCI Onehealth, is offering a new Teledermatology service in Ontario for private and public patients. Oro Health, a telehealth pioneer in Canada, is proud to partner with one of the largest medical groups in the Toronto region, to reduce patients’ wait list for a dermatology consultation. Patients, from the comfort of their homes, will be able to have a personalized consultation, receive a diagnosis and a prescription for minor dermatology pathologies, in a matter of days.
Oro specializes in asynchronous telemedicine, which unlike conventional telemedicine, does not require an appointment between the patient and the doctor. Exchanges are instead carried out continuously via secure instant messaging, at the convenience of both parties, which greatly improves time management for all.
This new MCI platform, MCI Dermatology Connect, is powered by Oro Health Technology, providing a highly secured and reliable medical process, compatible with the GDPR, PIPEDA and HIPAA standards.
“Quick, convenient access to specialists with top-quality continuity of care is a cornerstone of the patient experience in MCI’s high performance healthcare network. This collaboration with Oro Health expands our convenient and simple virtual care offering and accelerates access to specialty care,” said Dr. Alexander Dobranowski (pictured), CEO of MCI. “MCI is firmly committed to our mission to make healthcare more accessible, affordable and ultimately safer and we’re grateful for innovative partners like Oro Health who share this goal.”
Oro Health platform, first developed for Dermago in 2020, was created by two Canadian dermatologists to improve access to private medical services in Canada. This service is meant to relieve our current medical system by enabling easier access to dermatology for patients including those living far away from urban areas. A great number of patients in Ontario and in Quebec, are currently waiting for a consultation for minor conditions. This new service brings a rapid and secure solution to relieve these patients.
Over 30 000 patients in Canada, more than half last year alone, have already benefited from Oro Health platform by consulting on Dermago website.
At Oro Health, we believe that technology should serve our patients. Our A.I, developed by our team, scans and analyzes pictures downloaded by the patient to suggest, with more than 90% accuracy, three potential dermatological lesions to the physician. It enables the detection of more than 42 potential skin lesions regardless of skin colors, picture’s precision and light intensities.
