THE CORTICOCREAM CALCULATOR APP

BRINGING SIMPLICITY AND ACCURACY TO PRESCRIBING STEROID CREAMS 
This free, evidence-based app was developed in collaboration with the Pennsylvania Academy of Dermatology, dermatologists from Penn State Health, and primary care providers (PCPs).

How it works
  1. Select the age of your patient.
  2. Choose the affected area or areas.
  3. Enter the frequency and duration of the treatment.
  4. The app will then suggest specific steroid potencies, types, sizes and amounts. It will also suggest the corticosteroid formulation, such as gel, solution, cream or ointment.
 
While it won’t dictate what to prescribe, it will give you options with the appropriate potency, dosage and formulation. You don’t have to remember which medications come in which sizes, or how many tubes or bottles your patient needs.

PRESCRIBE WITH CONFIDENCE

​Take the guesswork and homework out of the picture and spend more time with your patients. See how much faster and easier it is to appropriately prescribe topical steroids, thanks to the new CorticoCream Calculator app.

THE MISSION

The CorticoCream Calculator App was developed to assist non-Dermatologists in prescribing more accurate and appropriate topical steroids. The result of a collaboration between dermatologists and physicians, our app works quickly and efficiently, giving primary care physicians (PCPs) more time to spend with their patients.
 
Now PCPs and other clinicians can prescribe topical steroids with greater confidence, knowing this evidence-based app will allow them to provide more accurate treatment for their patients.
 
The CorticoCream Calculator makes sure that the prescription is right the first time, reducing the likelihood of return visits for more prescriptions.
