DataDerm EHR integration

Review the list of EHRs below to find out whether your electronic health system is compatible with DataDerm. If you do not see your EHR system listed, you may inquire with the DataDerm team on possible interoperability opportunities between your EHR system and DataDerm. 

  • Cloud-based system means that direct access to the server is not allowed, so files will need to be shared with DataDerm. 
  • Server-based system means that direct access to the server is allowed, so data can be extracted via a practice's server.

Integration process

Once the DataDerm sign-up portal is complete, your practice will be contacted via email by a FIGmd client account manager within 10-12 business days. Learn more about FIGmd, the Academy's registry platform vendor.  

Step 1: Introductory phone call

Your FIGmd client account manager will email your practice to schedule an introduction call. During this call, the following items will be discussed:  

  • Your practice will receive a detailed overview of the integration process. 
  • FIGmd will gather more information about your EHR. 
  • FIGmd will supply your practice with any forms required by your EHR.  
  • You will be able to ask questions to gain a better understanding of the overall integration process. 
  • You will receive more information on what is needed from your practice in order to be a successful DataDerm participant. 
Step 2: Mapping meetings

After the introductory call, your practice will have frequent mapping meetings with your client account manager. These meetings will be scheduled for an hour, but can be longer depending on the number of items and questions needing to be discussed.  

  • After each meeting, you will receive a spreadsheet detailing what was discussed on each call to help your practice keep track of your progress. 
  • Mapping calls can be scheduled as needed by the practice in order to ensure the quality measures in DataDerm are being mapped accordingly.  
  • After approximately 4-5 mapping meetings, you will receive access to your dashboard. On the dashboard you will be able to view performance rates for all measures as well as benchmarking for each measure. The benchmarks with DataDerm will show you how you and the other providers in your practice compare on both a national and registry level. 
  • Integration will finish only when your practice is satisfied with the results of the mapping process and the reflected performances in your dashboard. 

If you are participating in the 2017 MIPS program using DataDerm, you will be able to submit the required information at the end of the reporting period. Learn more about how to use DataDerm to satisfy MIPS reporting requirements.


How to get started with DataDerm 

In order to become a DataDerm participant, you will need to complete a practice level registration within the DataDerm Sign-Up Portal. Use your AAD member ID and password to login to the portal.

Take me to the sign-up portal

Download the AAD's Sign-Up Portal Training Guide for step-by-step instructions to complete the sign-up process. Additionally, review a checklist of practice information you'll need before you begin.


Non-physician clinican participation

If you have an non-physician clinician (NPC) in your office that is interested in participating in DataDerm, you will need to have a dermatologist in the practice sign an attestation form that attests that the requested NPC is under the supervision of a dermatologist in the practice. If the NPC has a member ID with the AAD already, then approval will be granted with receipt of this form to the DataDerm team. If the NPC does not have a member ID, one will be generated with the receipt of this form. NPCs can be included in the registration process outlined above.
