VisualDx is developed by a team of physicians, educators, artists, and computer scientists dedicated to improving the health of people through better information at the point of care. Founded in 1999, we are guided by three principles. 1. We are committed to patients. 2. We believe that medical education and care are undergoing a transformation from memory-based to a memory-assisted paradigm, where excellent information retrieval is modeled during medical school and later put into practice. 3. We believe that visual representation of medical knowledge fulfills a need for physicians and their patients.
VisualDx has developed the most comprehensive digital medical image library of over 140,000 peer-reviewed images representing all ages and skin types as well as disease variation based on severity and stage, including classic and rare presentations. This extensive collection, which continues to grow, is the foundation for VisualDx. Learn more about the image collection, the archival process, and how to become an image contributor.
VisualDx develops innovative healthcare products and services and manages the world’s largest collection of digitized visible-light medical images. We selectively pursue development opportunities with partners that share our commitment to improving health care. Learn about out partners and partnership opportunities here.
VisualDx relies on its worldwide medical editorial board of practicing physician scholars to keep our clinical content objective, accurate, and current. The editorial board members are recognized for their expertise in specific fields of medicine and scientific research. VisualDx recruits new editorial board members as it continues to build its critical knowledge base of valuable diagnostic and health care treatment information and images. Meet our editorial board.
A doctor cannot memorize it all. In other professions, technology has improved the workflow. Medicine is slow to keep up. In our quest to improve diagnostic decision making, we often refer to Dr. Larry Weed. Often considered the father of the problem oriented medical record, Dr. Weed first recognized the importance of clear and sound clinical thinking more than 40 years ago.
