It focuses on the practical aspects of teledermatology implementation while providing a comprehensive treatment of the topic. Discussions include: business models and reimbursement issues; the current status of teledermatology research; the integration of teledermatology into dermatology residency training programs; ethical considerations; confidentiality issues; and the "art of teledermatology."
