VisualDxHealth Goes Live to Promote Wellness and Prevention
October 04, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Health NewsThe search for medical answers has been advanced by the launch of VisualDxHealth, http://www.visualdxhealth.com, a unique online consumer health resource developed by the doctors and health care professionals at Logical Images, Inc. Much more than the typical health Web site, VisualDxHealth provides consumers with image-based health tools that pinpoint disease information and promote prevention through early detection. VisualDxHealth gives viewers current health information on a variety of topics, from skin cancer to bug bites and more.
Turning to the Internet for health answers is increasingly common among adults in the U.S. According to a poll by Harris Interactive, 71% of people have used the Internet to search for health-related information this year. VisualDxHealth is dedicated to providing consumers quality, trusted health information online. Branched from the expert knowledge base of Logical Images’ professional tool VisualDx, VisualDxHealth visually presents health conditions from a database of over 2,000 medical images. “Having actual disease images for the consumer to compare to helps them better identify and understand their health concerns, a visual ‘that’s me’ experience,” said Dr. Art Papier, Chief Scientific Officer for Logical Images..
VisualDxHealth has a growing number of easy-to-use, innovative health tools including My Disease Finder, the trusted health search based on Google’s custom search engine technology, and a series of interactive Web widgets. These tools give the consumer medically reviewed and managed information tailored to their actual input. Additionally, blogs or other health care Web sites can add the VisualDxHealth widgets to their site by visiting http://visualdxhealth.com/tools.htm – providing readers expert disease information right on their site.
