Your Assistant In Dermatology Practice


The practice of dermatology is exciting and multifaceted but also very intense. Whether you are a young dermatologist or a seasoned expert, none of us knows everything by heart. Our task is so complex that everyone tends to forget something from time to time. In particular, when confronted with less common skin diseases, we need tailored tools to help us with difficult clinical work.


For this reason, we started developing DermaCompass in 2014. It is an assistance system and textbook with a supporting role in daily clinical activity. It helps not to forget anything about differential diagnosis, clarifications and therapy.

Complex search queries

The database system in DermaCompass intelligently processes each search, leading to the clinically most relevant result.

Medication Directory

All drugs used in dermatology are explained in DermaCompass with instructions for use, dosages, controls and links to the drug compendium.

Disease categories

The application's content is organized in a thorough index of dermatological conditions. Browse categories and thematic units in a nesting system.

Dermatological guidelines

The European Foundation for Dermatology and national societies have already developed multiple guidelines for everyday clinical practice. These are integrated into DermaCompass.

High-resolution pictures

DermaCompass contains high-resolution, validated images for all diagnoses. After making a differential diagnosis, the images of the diseases can be compared to facilitate decision-making.
