Title

Exploring the workforce shortage of dermatologists through telehealth as an innovative supply chain and logistics management technological solution.

Abstract

As COVID-19 continues to evolve in the United States (U.S.), now more than ever, medical care is leveraging technology and innovation in its delivery of treatment to patients in need of healthcare. The average wait time nationally for a new patient dermatology is 33 days, but the average wait time is 96 days in rural areas. As a result, many healthcare researchers are not evaluating workforce shortages of specialists like dermatologists as a supply chain and logistics management issue. The paper uses a content analysis of the literature to explore the ability of telemedicine as a logistics management tool that uses technology to meet the patient demand for dermatologists.
