Abstract Psoriasis represents a chronic disease, with a prevalence of 0.91% to 8.5% worldwide. The clinical manifestations of the disease vary a lot from patient to patient and the response to treatment also varies a lot. Today, in spite of the drawbacks it has, PASI (Psoriasis Area Severity Index) represents one of the best tools used to evaluate the extent of the disease and the response to medication. One of the drawbacks of using this scoring system is considered to be the way a doctor has to calculate the result. In this study we offer, step by step, a possible solution to create an informatics tool that can offer the result of the score based on the inputs made by the doctor.
