Teledermatology is an application of telemedicine i.e. clinical healthcare using IT-technologies, for skin disorders. This innovative system is consider as a potential answer to the decrease number of physicians, their unequal density, and to shorten the lead time and the time to schedule a visit. Despite its indisputable medical interest and a mature technology, teledermatology struggles to demonstrate the benefit of its large-scale deployment to decision makers. Considering Teledermatology as a technological or organizational innovation, to improve the conventional care process delivery and not as an independent healthcare delivery may be a key issue. Using conventional care activity modeling, we will in this paper take the example of skin cancer management to generate the possible observed scenarios and their possible occurrence in >65 year old population. Then using time and cost as process indicators, we will measure and evaluate the impact of a teledermatology process on the conventional care process. Numerical data will be gathered by two experimental studies.
