The Value of Earning CME Credit with VisualDx


We all know the how important continuing medication is for clinicians; maintaining lifelong knowledge and skills reduces patient harm and misdiagnosis. Earning CME credits is automatic with VisualDx—it’s a feature that is built right into the system. Each individual user accrues CME credits with every differential built or diagnosis searched. For more information on getting started, click here.

Year over year, more people are using VisualDx for CME credits. In 2019, we saw a 13% increase overall in claimed CME credits over 2018. Clinicians are often unfairly assumed to be human encyclopedias with endless knowledge—an impossible expectation. Using VisualDx can help fill in those knowledge gaps, arming generalists with specialist-level knowledge. After using VisualDx, a majority of people (88%) reported having clinical inquiries that either increased their knowledge or improved their competency.

81% of users reported having an inquiry that reinforced their treatment plan at least once. 67% of users modified their treatment plan after an inquiry at least once. Because our entries are continually updated and peer reviewed, you can be sure that you’re treating your patients based on the most up-to-date therapies.
