The role of technology in dermatology is expanding. Telemedicine and eHealth are increasingly being used by doctors and patients in the management of psoriasis. This is a narrative review of the literature relating to the use of digital technology in the management of psoriasis. We divided psoriasis e-health into three areas: mobile phone applications, teledermatology and artificial Intelligence (AI). Literature searches were conducted using the following databases: Pubmed, Google Scholar, Scopus, both app stores using App Annie platform. The following words were used in searches; psoriasis, dermatology, mobile phone application, application, app, smartphone, teledermatology, telemedicine, artificial intelligence, AI, machine learning in various combinations. We defined three key questions, one relating to each of the 3 areas. We then reviewed the relevant papers found in the searches and selected the papers of highest research quality and greatest relevance in order to answer the questions. In addition, for apps, operating systems for IOS and android devices were searched for apps containing the key word “psoriasis” in the title using the app analytic website on 08/11/21. Research publications linked to these apps were reviewed.
