Whether in practice or in clinic, dermatology is becoming more mobile. We are constantly accompanied and supported by smartphones and desktop computers. Our goal is to provide an independent academic resource that can seamlessly be used on both platforms.
Learning material can be edited with light pencils and comments at will and are available in this form at any time on desktop as well as smartphone or tablet. DermaCompass is available on iOS, Android and in the web browser.
Diagnoses in English and German
Your Practice Companion
The first step in any dermatological consultation is the anamnesis, investigation and development of a differential diagnosis. Already as a clinical beginner, one has typically a first suspected diagnosis and from this then develops a differential diagnosis. Although lists of differential diagnoses can be looked up in reference works, these are for the most part not applicable in the respective situation and therefore usually not of much help. The first advantage of DermaCompass are dynamic suggestions of differential diagnoses. From this, a shortlist is compiled within seconds, which is relevant for the current patient. Even the inexperienced dermatologist can thus take into account a complete differential diagnosis and as a result miss no important disease.
In the second step, the full potential of the application unfolds. The selected differential diagnosis will be investigated and a specific clinical clarification plan will be proposed with laboratory tests, microbiological, mycological and viral evidence, biopsies, genetics and instrumental examinations.
In future releases, we also plan to provide diagnostic-specific guidance to help prevent common mistakes as well as supportive advice – approximately equivalent to the advice of a supervising senior physician.
