ABSTRACT A significant area of telemedicine activity focuses on the diagnosis and treatment recommendations for dermatologic conditions. In this area it has become evident that store-and-forward systems are just as effective and less costly than traditional, high-bandwidth videoconferencing technology. We built a secure web-based, low cost store-and-forward system that conforms to anticipated HIPAA privacy regulations. The system is constructed with a combination of Open Source products and a web user interface. In recognition of the sensitive nature of the patient data contained in the system, communications over the public Internet are protected with SSL and the database employs role-based access authorization.
