Today, health care providers are expected to know more and do more. They want to give their patients high quality care, yet too often time constraints, complex cases, and cumbersome technology result in errors.

Doctors and nurses cannot do it alone and should not be expected to memorize everything. The Institute of Medicine released a groundbreaking report on diagnostic errors in September 2015. Errors account for 10% of hospital inpatient deaths and 12% of hospital adverse events.

“Most people will experience at least one diagnostic error in their lifetime, sometimes with devastating consequences.” -Institute of Medicine, September 2015

Now imagine that provider having that expert at hand – to guide a faster, more accurate diagnosis. VisualDx is the leader in diagnostic accuracy, in use at over 1,500 hospitals and institutions and over half the U.S. medical schools. It’s groundbreaking clinical decision support software that assists doctors and nurses at the point of care. Now available across general medicine, this tool is an essential resource for every clinician.

  • 97% of physicians believe using VisualDx improved patient care.
  • In a random, blind study, VisualDx improved diagnostic accuracy more than 120% compared to standard textbooks and reference guides.
  • Clinicians save up to 26 minutes per day when using VisualDx.

VisualDx is based on the fact that information-assisted decision-making is far more beneficial than just memory-based education.
