VisualDx Selected by the Department of Veterans Affairs for National Deployment

ROCHESTER, NY, December 8, 2010 – Logical Images, Inc. announced today that their diagnostic decision support system, VisualDx, has been selected by the Department of Veterans Affairs as a new clinician resource to be deployed nationally throughout the Veterans Health Administration’s (VHA) medical centers and clinics, which treat more than 5.5 million veterans on an annual basis.

VisualDx is the only diagnostic decision support system to combine the power of a comprehensive library of over 19,000 medical images with specialist-developed clinical information. The system aids primary care providers in the identification, diagnosis, and management of over 1,000 visually identifiable diseases, drug reactions, and infections.

“We are proud that our product supports the care of the men and women who bravely serve in our armed forces.” said Richard Cohan of Logical Images, Inc. “By implementing health IT resources like VisualDx, the VHA continues to be a leader in our nation’s movement to improve quality and care throughout our health system.”

Via the Web and mobile devices, VHA clinicians now have immediate point-of-care access to this diagnostic and educational resource covering both common conditions they may see on a daily basis, and rare diseases they may not. Clinicians will be able to enter observations, symptoms, medical histories, international travel locations, and other key findings about their patient to return a pictorial list of diagnostic possibilities they can then compare with their patient’s presentation to more accurately identify the diagnosis. VisualDx empowers the primary care clinician to manage a greater level of care for their patients with dermatologic conditions – providing more timely treatments, better patient understanding, and more appropriate referrals to dermatologists.

VisualDx has been nationally deployed throughout the VHA with the assistance of the Veterans Affairs Library Network (VALNET).
