What is VisualDx?

VisualDx is an award-winning diagnostic clinical decision support system designed to enhance diagnostic accuracy, aid therapeutic decisions, and improve patient safety through medical imagery. They partner with medical professionals to attain the most accurate medical imagery that can be utilized for diagnosis and education.

In a post-COVID world, virtual education and telemedicine are vital as people continue to practice social distancing and work from home. VisualDx is the perfect tool to utilize in this difficult time, as users can match what patients show them on a webcam with symptoms through various images in the app.

VisualDx can help you and your program teach clinical reasoning skills, point-of-care information access, and how cognitive bias impacts accuracy and diagnosis.
