Thanks to the School of Medicine Office of Student Technology, LSUHSC now has access to a new web-based clinical application designed to aid in visual diagnosis and patient education.
VisualDx allows point-of-care assistance for the user. The differential builder, diagnosis search, and medication search provide the information necessary to compare symptoms, visual cues, diagnosis, and treatment options. The VisualDx image bank contains over 25,000 medical images of diseases of the skin, hair, nails, eyes, lungs, etc. and shows variations by age, skin type, and stage.
You can watch a video overview of the application here: http://www.visualdx.com/features/video-overview.
Access to VisualDx is currently available through August 2014 for use on campus as well as off-campus for those with remote access privileges. Supported browsers are Internet Explorer 7+, Google Chrome, Firefox, and Safari. VisualDx also supports mobile wireless devices with a 3G or 4G connection.
A number of patrons have been receiving a certificate error when attempting to use the Library’s Remote Access system (WAM).
The certificate was renewed by LSU-Baton Rouge but is not propigating properly for some reason. To install the certificate, click on the from the following link. And then choose Open and then Install. Accept any other default settings. *Please note that this certificate only works with Internet Explorer & not Firefox.*
Once installation is complete (takes about 10 seconds), attempt the off-campus link from the Library’s webpages again.
~EDIT~ This issue is now resolved thanks to the efforts of the IT staff.
Just a quick reminder that most LSUHSC-New Orleans resources are available off campus (any where not on the LSUHSC network). This includes full-text materials, books & journals. Check out our handy tutorial.
Off Campus Access to the catalog is available once again. Thanks for your patience.
Molly Knapp has completed a Windows Media Video tutorial for accessing full-text journals via the Libraries’ catalog, Innopac. Don’t forget there is also a video for accessing materials remotely.
Two minutes is all it takes to learn how to access resources off campus.
Watch the video.
