ROCHESTER, N.Y., Jan. 30, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Best in KLAS Report announced today its 2013 Best in KLAS Software and Services report ranking VisualDx, a mobile app and online resource that is used by thousands of doctors to accurately diagnose and treat disease, as the Category Leader for Clinical Decision Support: Point of Care Clinical Reference.
This is the third year in a row that The Best in KLAS Report, one of the most recognized honors for medical software and services, has honored VisualDx. KLAS surveys thousands of healthcare professionals every year to determine the Best in KLAS Awards. Based on KLAS' survey, VisualDx received an overall score of 91.8, making it the top-ranked product in its category.
"We feel this honor is confirmation of physicians' widespread reliance on VisualDx to quickly and accurately help diagnose their patients and engage their patients in the process," said Art Papier, MD, CEO of Logical Images, the maker of VisualDx. "Doctors at more than half the nation's medical schools – including Yale, Harvard, NYU, Cornell and UCLA – and more than 1,500 hospitals and large clinics rely on VisualDx to help them diagnose all kinds of diseases and medical conditions."
VisualDx is available as both an e-record integrated resource and a mobile app that works with the iPhone, Android and iPad. What makes VisualDx stand apart? It treats every patient as a unique individual.
Most other products in this category are tools to look up a single disease or medication dose. VisualDx uniquely enables the user to maximize the search by entering multiple factors about a patient, including symptoms, medical history, travel, medications and lab results.
Based on that information, VisualDx searches across its proprietary medical knowledge database and then uses a patented process to quickly deliver "stacked visual knowledge" – a highly specific list of potential diagnoses, a series of medical images to compare to the patient's current conditions and the recommended treatments. Doctors then use VisualDx to arrive at the best diagnosis, explain the process to the patient using the images and decide on the right treatment for each unique patient.
