An electronic consultation (e-Consult) store-and-forward teledermatology program was implemented to improve access to dermatologic care in Maine. While initially designed to triage potential skin cancers, we found this program to be heavily used for pediatric patients, especially infants. Our findings suggest e-Consult expedites care for pediatric dermatology patients, particularly those with infantile hemangiomas. The addition of dermoscopy to e-Consult platforms has the potential to expand e-Consult effectiveness.
