Melville, New York April 13, 2020 -- Henry Schein Medical, the U.S. medical business of Henry Schein, Inc., announced today the availability of VisualDx to assist health care professionals seeing patients virtually or in person amid the novel COVID-19 outbreak. The web-based, clinical decision support system is designed to enhance diagnostic accuracy, aid therapeutic decisions, and improve patient care, all critically important for clinicians on the front lines of medicine.
VisualDx, which can be accessed from a computer desktop, tablet or mobile application, helps health care professionals navigate diagnostic challenges by using the software to enhance clinical decision-making. With VisualDx, a clinician can build a custom differential diagnosis; search by disease for quick therapy and treatment options; review and compare a curated medical image library; understand medication reactions; and share patient handouts via email.
“As health care professionals treat and diagnose patients amid the COVID-19 outbreak, it is an opportune time to leverage VisualDx to provide solutions health care providers can rely on to deliver fast, high-quality health care and offer accurate diagnosis and treatment,” said Michael Casamassa, Vice President of Solutions, Henry Schein Medical. “VisualDx will help providers who are still seeing patients in their physical setting, as well as those using our telemedicine solution, Medpod®, to help augment their thinking when treating and diagnosing patients.”
Available as one of Henry Schein Medical’s SolutionHub™ clinical support solutions, VisualDx can support common and complex diagnostic cases including rashes, variant presentations of symptoms, and emerging infectious diseases. The software is relevant for a range of health care specialties, including: Family Medicine, Internal Medicine, Urgent Care, Infectious Disease, Dermatology, Emergency Medicine, Pediatrics, Risk Management, and Medical Education.
“We are proud to team up with Henry Schein, a fellow New York company, to provide our health care workers with the tools needed to ‘raise the line’ via virtual care and decision support solutions,” said Art Papier, MD, CEO of VisualDx. “We applaud all clinicians, both on the frontline of the COVID-19 pandemic and those handling the rest of medicine. We believe our decision support software provides clinicians with the aid needed to handle important diagnoses and gives worried patients peace of mind as well.”
