There are websites that seem to promote this kind of thing. Googling "dermatologist telemedicine" turns up a few.

https://www.aad.org/practicecenter/managing-a-practice/teledermatology the latter with some support for interested dermatologists. https://www.aad.org/practicecenter/managing-a-practice/teledermatology
There seem to be some practice resources.
Googling "open-source dermatology telemedicine" turns up a few more resources that are worth a look.

iPath
"Collaborative platform for exchange of medical knowledge, distance consultations, group discussions and distance teaching in medicine."
software downloads here: https://sourceforge.net/projects/ipath/
There is a reference to a online dermatology project amongst the papers listed.

A search under dermatology turns up a lot of options.
