An app for Psoriasis Management

Janssen-Cilag psoriasis iPhone app

Janssen-Cilag UK has unveiled the first psoriasis iPhone app – a disease calculator for healthcare professionals treating the chronic skin condition.

It is the pharma company’s first foray into addressing the opportunity presented by Apple’s iPhone and was produced by Manchester-based agency Creative Lynx.

The CL PASI Calculator can be used to determine how severely a patient has been affected and is based on the Psoriasis Area Severity Index (PASI).

Janssen’s app offers clinicians a step-by-step process to do this, whereby they assign a percentage to the extent the disease has affected different regions of the body, and then grade the lesions seen there – based on their similarity to a series images.
