Visual clinical decision supportThe VisualDx software system is an innovative, dual use approach for early detection, disease reporting, and improving your frontline clinicians’ response to emerging infectious disease, conditions potentially caused by terrorist acts, and other public health incidents. Designed for public health, emergency, and primary care clinicians, the VisualDx clinical decision support system merges medical images with clinical information to guide diagnosis, treatment, and management of visually diagnosable disease.

VisualDx clinical decision support software system guides diagnosis, treatment, and management of disease— including emerging infectious diseases (EIDs) and conditions potentially caused by bioterrorism, chemical warfare, or radiation release—while just as importantly reassuring and appropriately treating the “worried well.”
VisualDx helps clinicians rapidly build a custom, visual differential diagnosis based on their patient’s unique findings (e.g., symptoms, signs, lesion type, body location, radiological findings, medical history, travel, etc.) and quickly drill down to medical images and useful, actionable clinical information on each possible agent/condition.

Visual clinical decision supportVisually diagnosable conditions can be more difficult to recognize in patients with dark skin. VisualDx’s comprehensive library of dark skin disease images addresses visually diagnosable disease in populations that, to date, have been largely underrepresented in atlases and texts. Armed with the information most relevant to their patient, clinicians can quickly reach a diagnosis and begin treatment.

• Rapidly access information about bioterrorism, chemical warfare, radiation injury, avian flu, SARS, and other infectious diseases
• Educate clinicians and public health personnel in preparedness
• Push health alerts to the point-of-care
• Sustainable training through daily use for common diagnostic problems
• Educate your clinicians about notifiable diseases and their clinical presentations
• Improve care in rural or underserved settings
