Dr. Trevor Champagne
Chair of Medical Advisory Board
Teledermatology is a subspecialty of dermatology that offers safe and effective virtual care—patient assessment and diagnosis—at a distance, eliminating the need for in-person appointments. With the world navigating through ongoing COVID-19 recovery measures, teledermatology's advancement has never been more critical to patient care and outcomes. Dr. Champagne will drive ongoing innovation with MedX's teledermatology offering, including the Company's leading-edge image capture technology (SIAscopy®) for moles, lesions and other skin conditions via its secure, cloud-based patient management system (DermSecure®), which transmits and stores patient data through the assessment process. MedX's SIAscopy® is the only technology that takes five images, including four spectrophotometric images 2 mm below the skin's surface.
In addition to his leadership appointment at MedX, Dr. Champagne is a dermatologist at the Women's College Hospital in Toronto, as well as an Assistant Professor (Clinician in Quality and Innovation, Division of Dermatology) at the University of Toronto's Temerty Faculty of Medicine, Canada's top-ranked medical school.
