During his first year of medical school, our founder, Art Papier, MD, attended a brown bag lunch seminar with Dr. Lawrence Weed. Dr. Papier realized the most important challenge facing medicine was having the right information at the time of decision-making. His residency brought him to Rochester, NY, the image capital of the world. Inspired by Dr. Weed’s work in medical informatics and taking full advantage of Rochester’s deep expertise in imaging, computer innovation, and medicine, VisualDx was born.
VisualDx launched its first product (on CD-ROM!) in March, 2001. Soon after the September 11th terrorist attacks, VisualDx lent its knowledge and expertise to the CDC to safeguard against potential bioterrorist attacks, including smallpox and anthrax.
VisualDx is committed to providing the right information at the right time. That means the decision support must fit within the workflow. That workflow now includes the electronic health record. VisualDx currently supports the HL7 infobutton standard as well as SMART® on FHIR®
In 2001, VisualDx started with a workup for a fever and a rash. In 2016, VisualDx expanded its content to include a chief complaint seen in general medicine, doubling the number of diagnoses, adding visual elements to general medicine, and providing the best differential diagnosis tool available.
As VisualDx expands its footprint around the world, it understood the need to have the most relevant content available. In 2017, VisualDx translated its search and guided workup to include Spanish (European and Latin American) French, German and Chinese. Additional languages are coming soon.
VisualDx tapped into the power of machine learning and AI to identify skin lesion morphology from a picture on the phone, thus aiding the diagnostic workup process. In 2017, this was realized with the add-on of DermExpert within the VisualDx product for iOS devices. This use of AI augments the physical exam and allows non-dermatologists to improve skin disorder diagnosis.
UpToDate, a point-of-care knowledge system, and VisualDx have partnered to bring customers of both tools an enhanced user experience. Institutional customers can enable VisualDx within UpToDate search results for access to diagnostic decision support and VisualDx images within UpToDate.
