VisualDx Now Available at Northeast Ohio Medical University
Collaboration supplements medical education with data and images that represent the diversity of all patients so future doctors can provide equitable care
ROCHESTER, NY – March 10, 2021 – VisualDx, a web-based clinical decision support system headquartered in Rochester, NY and Northeast Ohio Medical University (NEOMED) have entered into an agreement to license VisualDx to students and faculty.
VisualDx is a technology used in medical schools across the globe to teach clinical reasoning and differential diagnosis. The software also includes the world’s best dark skin image atlas and most equitable image collection of disease presentations in people of all skin colors, enhancing all medical education programs by reducing knowledge gaps.
VisualDx has also created readily available resources to assist both in the classroom and online education, including case vignettes and diagnostic image challenges, which are also available to NEOMED students and faculty.
“These students are the healthcare providers of the future. Learning with the technology they’ll be using with patients is critical to their education and growth,” said Art Papier, M.D., CEO of VisualDx. “We are excited to add NEOMED to our growing list of medical schools preparing tomorrow’s clinicians to provide the best patient care possible.”
“NEOMED recognizes the teaching bias that exists in medical education at a national level. We also recognize the structural bias in many health care practices – bias that stems from basing norms on Caucasian male populations when considering disease expression, treatment and outcomes,”
said John T. Langell, M.D., Ph.D., M.P.H., M.B.A., president of NEOMED. “To bring positive change to the medical care provided to Black, Latinx and other patients with non-white skin, we need to change the way medical education is being taught and our students must have access to technologies and leadership training that ensures that they become health professionals who provide care that is reflective, inclusive and equitable.”
VisualDx is available both online and on the mobile app. To learn more about its efforts to improve equity in medical education, visit www.visualdx.com/diversity.
