Faster, More Accurate Diagnosis
VisualDx is a diagnostic clinical decision support system that leverages the innate human ability to recognize visual patterns to assist healthcare providers in making faster, more accurate diagnoses. VisualDx combines high-quality, peer-reviewed medical images and concise, actionable information to support today’s busy physicians in the accurate recognition and management of disease. Health care professionals can input visual clues, symptoms, and patient history to help make the correct diagnosis and avoid costly and dangerous errors at the point of care.
10% to 20% of all diagnoses are inaccurate1 and may result in patient dissatisfaction, harm, or serious injury including death. Physicians and patients know that proper patient management and therapy depends on diagnostic accuracy. Moreover, diagnostic error often involves common clinical scenarios and is not limited to rare diagnoses or unusual presentations. VisualDx is proven to reduce diagnostic error.
