– Telemedicine advocates have long argued that virtual care is equal to in-person care. But for some specialists augmenting their “day job” with eConsult services, that telehealth platform enables them to do more than they normally do during an office visit.
On such specialist is Dr. Camille Introcaso, a dermatologist with the Pennsylvania Center for Dermatology, a private practice in the Philadelphia area, who joined AristaMD’s Smart Care eConsult service roughly a year ago. The connected care platform, which she usually accesses at home in the evening, offers her the opportunity to flex her clinical muscles and help people who can’t afford her services, but who often need them more than the patients she sees in her office.
