        This is great! I would say the biggest impact I’ve seen is delay in WLE and SLNB surgery. Also my dermatology clinic had scheduled telehealth visits in the first months of the pandemic, but then called me for in person after realizing routine skin checks are harder over telehealth.

        There could be a way for providers to push skin surveillance apps to their patients instead of telehealth visits.
