Thank you to everyone who participated in the DEF Weekly VideoSeries last night, including our presenters DERM2020 Faculty Member Dr. Adam Friedman and telehealth expert Jennifer Tinkler, FNP-BC, DCNP! We hope that our dermatology NP and PA community continues to benefit from collective shared information and experiences as we navigate this crisis and the unique challenges it presents to our specialty.

We invite you to watch our DEF VideoSeries and continue to urge you to follow the guidance given by your dermatology office management team and the mandates provided by your state and local government.

Some Helpful Online Resources:

  • State by State regulations and reimbursement coverage can be found on the Center for Connected Health Policy website.
  • The AAD has comprehensive, current telemedicine guidelines and billing information if you work with a physician who has access to the AAD website.
  • If you have extra time on your hands you can buy the telemedicine training modules from SDSU for $100 and you do get credit for completing them and a certificate.
  • If you want to stay abreast of changing regulations you can attend the NCTRC monthly webinars on the third Thursday of every month. Dr. Art Saavredra, Chair of Dermatology at University of Virginia Health talked on 3/19/20 shared that we can implement and scale quickly in Dermatology. Toolkits on starting are also available on the website.
  • There is a free course on AANE if you are furloughed and looking to set up a telemedicine practice from scratch and have time right now to invest in learning.
  •  You may be interested in becoming an employee for ancillary income and apply to a platform such as Wheel for a side hustle during this low census period.
