ROCHESTER, NY [November 14, 2016] - Bringing intelligence into the workflow of the electronic health record, VisualDx is pleased to be a featured partner during the 2016 Cerner Health Conference (CHC).  VisualDx partnered with Cerner to be one of the first commercial applications using FHIR of Cerner Millennium.

VisualDx is a diagnostic clinical decision support system used in more than 1,600 hospitals and large clinics. Using the SMART/FHIR standard, the platform is able to obtain the patient's age, sex, problem list, and medication list to provide the clinician with VisualDx images matching their specific conditions or drug reactions.

At CHC, VisualDx, CoxHealth, and Cerner will be presenting on “Extending EHR Capabilities with SMART on FHIR Apps.”

“Cox Health, working in partnership with Cerner and VisualDx is using SMART on FHIR to integrate VisualDx diagnostic decision support into the Cerner EHR.  VisualDx is a powerful clinical tool, and FHIR made for easy interoperability connecting VisualDx into Powerchart,” said Louis Krenn, MD, Chief Medical Information Officer, CoxHealth.

“There are many causes for diagnostic error – including complexity, variation, and the sheer volume of patients in a clinician’s day. That’s why we are providing the best resources to compare variations of disease right in the workflow,” said Art Papier, MD, CEO, VisualDx.
