Henry Schein Medical, the U.S. medical business of Henry Schein, Inc. (Melville, NY) and exclusive distributor of Medpod, Inc.’s telemedicine solutions, announced the integration of VisualDx – a clinical decision support system – with Medpod’s technology infrastructure to help healthcare professionals better diagnose patients virtually.
The company says that Medpod’s cloud-based software and modular infrastructure gives providers and operators “the ability to deliver customizable, high-quality, and convenient care that meets the needs of patients who cannot visit a traditional office setting.”
With the integration of VisualDx’s clinical support, Medpod users can access a database of information written by a variety of medical experts; recognize disease variants; identify drug adverse events; and enhance patient education to help provide informed, accurate, and fast decision-making.
The platform also assists users to make custom diagnoses as a result of having the ability to enter patient-specific information; search by disease for quick therapy and treatment options; review and compare a curated medical image library; enhance understanding of medication reactions; and share patient handouts via email.
Clinicians can also earn Continuing Medical Education (CME) credits each time they use VisualDx as part of their subscription.
