Sophisticated Digital Aids Could Help Determine What Ails You

scientific_american_logo_small.jpgScientific American looks at point-of-care technology helping doctors and other healthcare professionals quickly and accurately diagnose patients. Here are a couple excerpts where VisualDx was mentioned:

"A growing number of medical schools, teaching hospitals, and other care centers are also paying for computer-based assistance such as ... VisualDx. Right now, VisualDx, the most popular diagnostic support system, is licensed at more than 1,600 hospitals and clinics across the U.S., according to its manufacturer."

"The clinical decision-support systems have changed, too. They have become much faster and often link directly to the studies from which they draw, allowing clinicians to quickly assess evidence and learn more about the potential diagnosis. VisualDx, for that matter, highlights its "visual" aspect - it includes diagrams of what body parts may be affected and pictures of maladies for easier comparison."
