Dermanaut was originally formed in 2006 because Dr. Jean Holland’s office was struggling with their paper records and realized there was a significant potential cost-benefit to an electronic record. Initially the office purchased the best available EMR product, but realized after several days of off-site training that the application simply would not work in their fast-paced dermatology clinic. Dermanaut was determined to be different.
Dedicated to making easy and intuitive software for dermatology, Jon Baugh and the rest of the Dermanaut team went into dermatology offices across the country to iteratively design a system, side-by-side with dermatologists. What Dermanaut has developed is due to feedback from hundreds of dermatologists.
Jon Baugh helped found Dermanaut in 2006 and is the chief executive officer and lead interface designer for Dermanaut. Prior to Dermanaut, Baugh has over 10 years experience designing a variety of computer user interfaces, technology consulting, and small- business management.
