The University Libraries recently purchased an enterprise-wide site license to VisualDX, a diagnostic clinical decision support tool of over 1,200 pediatric and adult conditions with over 25,000 images. Physicians can search by diagnosis, build a patient-specific differential, or look up drug-induced adverse reactions by medication. VisualDx aids in the identification of dermatologic, infectious, genetic, metabolic, nutritional and occupational diseases, benign and malignant growths, drug-induced conditions, and other injuries.
LLU’s license to VisualDx includes on-site and remote mobile access. VisualDx Mobile is available as native iPhone, iPad, and Android apps. Follow these instructions to get the mobile app:
- Launch VisualDx while on-site from the Library or the VIP Intranet and click “Get our free app... Learn how" (center of VisualDx homepage) or "Get VisualDx Mobile" (top right of page).
- Create your personal username and password as instructed.
- Once you have a username and password, you can download the free VisualDx Mobile app on your mobile device from the iTunes Store or from Google Play.
- Launch the VisualDx app from your device and sign in using the username and password you created.
