A global, critical need is to improve the recognition of skin. Up to 25% of all primary care visits involve a skin complaint. These providers are ill-equipped to handle these complaints and there are not enough dermatologists to handle the case load.
DermExpert incorporates Apple’s renowned ease-of-use technology with VisualDx’s unparalleled differential diagnosis aid. After a clinician takes a picture of the patient’s skin, DermExpert immediately identifies the skin lesion morphology, which is critical to making a more accurate diagnosis at the point of care.

VisualDx is a useful and powerful tool - a must-have software for all general practitioners. It gives me the information I need at the point of care to avoid misdiagnosis and avoid unnecessary tests and prescriptions. By simply entering the patients' findings, I can quickly see what other symptoms to look for, what questions to ask, and then the software guides me to a differential diagnosis right in front of the patient.
