Medical reference apps

It's hard for doctors to keep all medical information about diseases and drugs in their heads. In addition, there are many medical articles with new experiments and findings doctors need to keep track of. Care providers want to be up on the latest advancements, but it's hard to be around a computer all the time to do research and read information. Here's where medical reference apps come in.

The VisualDX application is a reference tool, educational tool, and one of the most popular medical diagnosis apps. It includes more than 3,000 diagnoses and over 41,000 medical images. With VisualDx, medical providers can validate diagnoses by comparing the app's images with a patient's presentation. Doctors can build a diagnosis based on patient symptoms. The app includes over 43,000 cases of drug reactions and can assist doctors with on-the-spot patient education using real medical images. The app also has quizzes that let doctors test their knowledge and compare themselves with colleagues via leaderboards.
