Teledermatologist Expert Skin Advice (TESA) is a national, secure and confidential online medical service offered to healthcare providers (doctors and nurses) throughout Australia for patients prior to, during or following treatment with telaprevir or simeprevir for Hepatitis C. TESA provides ready access to a consultant dermatologist who can advise on the diagnosis and management of any dermatological conditions that may occur during treatment or be present beforehand. Patient details, history and digital photographs can be sent to the consultant dermatologist via the secure TESA website. The specialist’s diagnosis and expert management advice will be provided within 24 hours. The TESA online service is fully sponsored by Janssen, at no cost to patients, healthcare providers or their institutions.

TESA is provided by independent party Siller Medical Pty. Ltd. trading as Central Brisbane Dermatology.
