VisualDx in Practice
"I was caring for a school-age female with a rash that was very distressing to the parents. This family was unique, as both of the child's parents were deaf. As I said the words 'erythema multiforme' the interpreter ... said (and signed) 'she just said a really big word.' I logged onto VisualDx. The parents had the opportunity to visualize and read the words 'erythema multiforme' and see examples of the rash. VisualDx helped me to communicate with the parents of my patient as well as confirm my diagnosis." – Megan Lynch, CPNP, Children's Mercy Hospital, Kansas City, MO
