About Oro

From Dermago to Oro Health

Founded in 2018 by two dermatologists and a business analyst, Dermago allows patients to consult a dermatologist from the comfort of their home.

Problems like severe acne, rosacea, rashes, eczema, psoriasis, dandruff, hair loss and itching can all be evaluated and treated virtually.


Since the launch of the virtual dermatology service, other clinics have expressed interest in the concept, wanting a telemedicine platform of their own. 

Dermago was thus transformed into a white-labeled, secure, user-and-clinician friendly platform that empowers other health care professionals to create their own virtual presence with no coding or design skills needed.

A straightforward mission

« Improving the daily lives of patients and physicians through innovative technological solutions to ensure quality and efficiency in healthcare. »
