The new VisualDx is an award-winning diagnostic clinical decision support system that has now expanded across general medicine. As the leader in diagnostic accuracy, the software is proven to improve accuracy, save physicians’ time, and enhance patient care.

Because VisualDx is used in more than 1,500 hospitals and large clinics, interoperability with e-records through SMART on FHIR® has been a critical feature. When assessed through SMART on FHIR® VisualDx extracts the sex, age, medication and problem lists from the patient’s EHR.

The information from the EHR is used to construct a list of patient specific differential diagnoses and medications with clinical content available in VisualDx. The clinician can immediately access curated, peer-reviewed clinical information, images, and Sympticons™ to provide an accurate diagnosis at the point of care.

Use Cases

  • A pediatrician sees a young girl with a rash. She starts a workup, adds findings and reviews the custom differential diagnosis. The doctor then confirms her diagnosis by reviewing the diagnostic possibilities.
  • An emergency medicine resident’s patient is vomiting so he looks at the patient’s medications and finds a new naproxen prescription. He clicks through to see what medication reactions naproxen may cause, confirms the diagnosis, and looks up treatment options.
  • A family medicine doctor looks up a disease from the problem list, reviews the medical images and better understands therapy options.
  • The provider shares images and disease information via the patient handouts to build confidence and strengthen the patient-clinician relationship.

"VisualDx within SMART on FHIR gives me the decision support I need to provide my patients with the best care possible. Because VisualDx pulls the patient’s age, sex, medications, and problem list, I can quickly understand any potential drug reactions by viewing a differential of possibilities. I can also read up on the patient’s problem list to understand therapy options, management pearls, and more. VisualDx is just the kind of intelligence needed in the electronic health record to improve diagnostic accuracy and enhance patient care."
