Dermatology is a professional medical field created to examine, diagnose and treat abnormalities of the skin, hair, or nails. Dermatologists complete 12 years of post-secondary education and training. This includes the 4-year requirements to obtain a bachelor’s degree program of higher education as well as four years of medical school and four years of residency. The most common procedures performed by dermatologists include skin biopsies, shave removal (shaving off layers of skin), cryosurgery, topical chemotherapy, photodynamic therapy, electrodessication and curettage, conservative excision, aesthetic treatments and Mohs surgery. Many examinations will result in further investigation and testing so dermatological practices work closely with laboratories to examine and diagnose the root causes of presenting conditions.
Dermatologists often see patients and operate their businesses out of private practices and in an affiliation with one or more hospitals. A practice typically includes one or several dermatologists, dermatology physician assistants (PAs), and office administrative staff. Some practices in a learning environment will take on rounding resident doctors. Some practices market products to their patients like vitamins and creams to promote healthy skin and to provide additional revenue to the practice. The management of dermatology offices is generally tied together through electronic medical record (EMR) and electronic health record (EHR) software systems like eClinicalWorks and DrChrono. These software platforms manage scheduling, keep records and calculate payments. Payment Integrator provides solutions to accept payments within practice management system environments.
