MoleMapper™ iPhone mole tracking app

MoleMapper™ iPhone application logo

MoleMapper™ is an iPhone app that lets users take control of their skin health from their smartphone. Using MoleMapper™, your patients can photograph, map, and measure moles over time, allowing them to detect potentially harmful changes in their skin. Furthermore, they can also share these images with their providers in their visits, providing a valuable visual tool to help analyze potentially harmful changes.

You can direct patients to www.molemapper.org to learn more and download. You can also share the MoleMapper™ rack card.

If you are interested in promoting MoleMapper™ in your clinics, please contact petrie@ohsu.edu and we can send you physical materials.

Melanoma Community Registry

Join the Melanoma Community Registry

Patients that are looking for a way to fight against melanoma can join the Melanoma Community Registry. The registry is primarily made up of past melanoma patients, caregivers, or friends/family members of someone affected by the disease, although all are welcome to join regardless of health history.

The Melanoma Community Registry is an IRB-approved cohort, that is a major resource of volunteers used to fight the War on Melanoma™. Registry members will receive information about future melanoma-related projects, educational events, research participation, volunteer opportunities, and more.

Registering is easy: direct your patients to Melanoma Community Registry page (or waronmelanoma.org), where they will select register, fill in a few short data forms, and submit.

Dermatology e-visits

Make an e-visit appointment at OHSU Dermatology.

For patients unable to receive dermatological care due to geographical or physical limitations, OHSU Dermatology offers E-visit appointments.

These E-visits allow anyone with a computer and internet access to securely upload pictures of skin issues that they are concerned with. A dermatology provider then reads these concerns and provides follow-up recommendations.

These appointments are cash-only and will be billed at the time of appointment.
