Online Dermatologist – SnapDoc was conceived in cooperation between doctors and scientists from the National Center for Tumor Diseases and the University Clinic Heidelberg (Department of Dermatology) in Germany and implemented by the local technology company Smart Health Heidelberg GmbH. At SnapDoc, only board-certified dermatologists from Heidelberg with at least 10 years of clinical experience will assess your skin problem. SnapDoc is 100% made in Germany and the only online dermatologist service in Germany approved by a state medical association. You can send in information and photos of your skin problem via the SnapDoc Apps for Android & iPhones as well as via the web form for reporting. Within a few hours (maximum 24h) you will receive a qualified assessment of what it is. Thanks to the recommended action, you will also know what you can do about your skin problem. About 80% of our patients no longer need to go to the practice. The platform is continuously improved and optimized by both an internal and an external scientific evaluation. On this page you will find more information about the people behind SnapDoc.

“Quality assured teledermatological treatment is particularly practicable in rural regions and can lead to a relevant additional benefit in care. Technology that enables anonymous access to this care is the better choice from a data protection perspective and reduces barriers for patients with skin and venereal diseases.”
