(OCTOBER 2, 2017) - VisualDx announced on Friday that it updated its artificial intelligence app for the iPhone or iPad to help non-dermatologists assess skin lesions and rashes.
"People expect expertise of their doctors, nurse practitioners and physician assistants, and we cannot expect these generalists to memorize all medical information, " Dr. Art Papier, CEO and co-founder of VisualDx, told HCB News.
Over 65 percent of skin complaints are addressed by non-dermatologists, and 15 percent of primary care visits involved skin-related issues, according to a study published in the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology.
