VisualDx is problem oriented for problem solving: search by symptoms, visual clues and other patient factors, by diagnosis, or by medication. VisualDx clinical decision support provides instant access to concise disease information and high-quality medical images to assist in diagnosis, to direct testing, and to guide management and therapy decisions.
Select a clinical scenario and enter patient symptoms to quickly build a contextualized, patient-relevant differential diagnosis. The Quick Start function guides the user to enter the patient factors relevant to the problem at hand, or alternatively, one can simply type in the patient symptoms or other relevant findings.
Search a diagnosis to access disease images and pithy clinical information. Each diagnosis topic contains a clickable differential list allowing the user to go back and forth between diagnostic summaries and images. Search functionality includes type-ahead-find, diagnosis synonymy, key words, and text search. In addition, the synopses provide ICD codes, references, and a list of associated findings such as signs, medications, exposures, medical history, and more.
Medication adverse events
Search by medication to view adverse conditions that may be caused by a specific drug. Results provide images of medication-induced eruptions and include literature evidence documenting each association, as well as management and therapy guidelines.
