Indiana Improves Health Care Quality, Emergency Preparedness through Decision Support Software

December 4, 2007 – The Indiana State Department of Health has launched a statewide deployment of a visual clinical decision support software system, Logical Images’ VisualDx.

The pilot program includes the installation of the software in 42 hospitals and 11 local health departments and clinics across the state. VisualDx will aid clinicians at these facilities in developing a more accurate, patient-centric diagnosis while simultaneously improving emergency preparedness.

VisualDx is a technology that merges thousands of medical images with clinical information to give the clinician specialist knowledge right at the point-of-care. The VisualDx software system provides an innovative, dual-use approach for early detection, disease reporting, and will improve frontline clinicians’ response to emerging infectious disease, conditions potentially caused by acts of terrorism, and other public health incidents which may be less recognizable. VisualDx meets HRSA-ASPR / CDC bioterrorism preparedness requirements.

The placement of the VisualDx software at the 53 pilot sites was funded by Indiana State Department of Health’s Center for Disease Control preparedness funds. In addition to the initial pilot sites, individual health centers have also purchased the software independently with the common goal of increasing health care quality and preparedness levels throughout the state.
