Clarify Medical and DermatologistOnCall Announce a Partnership

MHW learned ahead of the weekend that DermatologistOnCall, a leading online dermatology company with a network of nearly 300 board-certified dermatologists in more than 40 states, and Clarify Medical Inc., the developer and marketer of the Clarify Medical Home Light Therapy System, have announced that they had formed a strategic collaboration to provide innovative light therapy treatment for patients at home, at work or traveling, linked to the patients’ physicians through their smartphones.

From the provided release:

Candidates for the Clarify Home Light Therapy system, which enables patients to deliver targeted narrowband UVB (Ultra Violet B) treatment to themselves at home, include those with chronic skin conditions such as psoriasis, vitiligo and severe eczema.

These conditions are estimated to affect more than 30 million people in the United States.

“Remote medical supervision of phototherapy is a powerful application of our online technology,” said Mark P. Seraly, MD, founder and Chief Medical Officer of DermatologistOnCall. “Millions of patients could benefit from non-invasive, convenient home light therapy treatment when it is combined with highly experienced medical management. With the new Clarify Medical technology, physicians in our network will be able to control dosage, titration and duration of therapy remotely, as well as monitor patient adherence and treatment progress photos.”
