RegimenMD and SkyMD announced that they established a strategic alliance to integrate their technologies and create the first end-to-end platform to blend telehealth, dispensing and patient education.
A growing number of dermatologists are expressing interest in teledermatology, and the market is responding with new technologies and platforms to meet and create patient demand. SkyMD is a company focused on teledermatology specifically, with the goal of helping dermatologists expand their local reach by providing teleconsults for dermatologic needs.

While many see telemedicine as the wave of the future, others are unsure of its place in the modern practice, due to a variety of legal and logistical hurdles. Some of those concerns are justified, but can be easily remedied or eliminated by choosing the right teledermatology partner and knowing what to expect.
SkyMD has announced the full-scale rollout of its telehealth application: a platform that connects dermatologists to their patients. Since its soft launch in October 2015, SkyMD has seen growth in the application’s usage and effectiveness.
As of 2015, 62% of smartphone owners had used their phone to research a medical condition in the past year, and as one McKinsey report shows, 75% of patients would like to receive digital health care.
New York City-based SkyMD, which has developed a telemedicine service for providers to use with their patients, raised $800,000 from angel investors including Blue Apron founder Matt Salzberg and Livestar founder Fritz Lanman.
