AI at the Point of Care: The Value of Teaching VisualDx to Your Clinicians

Annechino Michael J.

Wolters Kluwer - Ovid, Finland

The presentation will address three main topics: The history and construct of differential diagnosis and clinical reasoning; Using and teaching technology at the point of care (POC); a product demonstration of VisualDx newest AI feature called DermExpert.

This presentation will take you through the journey that began with Dr. Larry Weed and the development of the problem-oriented health record. This created the foundation for electronic health record system design and the processes by which clinicians use symptoms, data, and clinical reasoning at the point of care.

This approach must be enhanced by technology as Dr. Weed railed against rote memorization to tackle diagnostic decision-making. VisualDx is set apart from other tools and we will show you why: We begin with the problem. We guide you through the process. We visualize the answer.

Finally, we will showcase the innovative new product feature from VisualDx called DermExpert – a take-a-picture feature on mobile devices that can analyze an image of a skin complaint and recognize the type of lesion to aid the physical exam at the point of care.

VisualDx is an award-winning, clinical decision support system that has become a standard medical professional resource at more than 2,500+ medical universities, hospitals, and other clinical sites world-wide. VisualDx combines problem-oriented search with the world’s best curated medical image library, expert knowledge & sophisticated machine learning algorithms to aid with differential diagnosis, variation, treatment, and patient communication.

The JoVE Clinical Solution: video and interactive learning content for the modern medical and health information landscape

Marco Stella, Eleftheriadou Marita

JoVE, United Kingdom

JoVE is more than a database. It is a productivity tool that was born from practical necessities and aims at bringing state of the art video demonstrations to the medical and health science community. Adding the visual component to the still rigid scientific publication landscape, research and education can greatly benefit from the media formats of the “Information Age”. JoVE advances clinical research and education by providing the resources it needs to grow and develop. Since its founding in 2006, JoVE has produced nearly 10,000 video articles, demonstrating experimental techniques and clinical procedures filmed in laboratories at top research institutions, and delivered online to millions of scientists, educators, and students worldwide.

Evidence-based veterinary medicine and the librarian: what do we do and how can we make it better?

Although evidence-based veterinary medicine (EBVM) is at a more nascent stage than evidence-based (human) medicine, it is increasingly mentioned in veterinary school curricular competencies, taught in veterinary schools [1], and supported by governing and accreditation bodies. This has created growing roles for librarians supporting veterinary curricula and clinical veterinary practitioners.

We take an evidence-based approach to supporting EBVM and this workshop provides participants with an opportunity to share their experiences of information literacy teaching and learning in support of EBVM.

We will share and discuss examples of best teaching practices and facilitators will share their experiences with developing EBVM support. Literature searching is at the heart of librarian support for EBVM and this workshop will include a sharing of facilitators’ current search examples and collaboratively developing search examples during the workshop.

We will discuss the “why” of doing things in certain ways to move our involvement with EBVM from an eminence base to one of evidence. For example, does the literature support what we are doing or have we simply always done it this way?

Additionally, we will discuss product changes which may impact veterinary literature searching. For example, changes are scheduled in 2019 to PubMed [2] and VetMed Resource (VMR). VMR requires a subscription and the workshop will provide login access and a 30-day trial to VetMed Resource.

Format: Introduction, with a focus on current roles in supporting EBVM; Presentation: sharing examples of current practice in teaching search skills for EBVM; Practical exercise: participants will work in small groups to critique some existing search strategies specific to veterinary medicine and evaluate their likely effectiveness; Group discussion: how to improve search strategies and the way we teach them to others; Agreeing next steps for virtual collaboration as librarians supporting EBVM.After the workshop delegates will receive copies of all searches.

Learning outcomes : By the end of the workshop participants should: Understand the principles of Library support for EBVM; Have more confidence in their search skills for literature searches in veterinary medicine; Be able to apply new ideas to their own support and teaching of EBVM; Be able to use the networks available to support librarians working in EBVM.

Potential workshop outputs: A shared understanding of the training and teaching methods being used for EBVM in different countries; We would like to build exemplars of search strategies for veterinary medicine to share, via online tools such as EBVM Learning ( ; We anticipate that working with other colleagues face-to-face in the workshop would facilitate future virtual networking and collaboration, in this highly specialised subject area.

Type of interactivity : After the initial presentation, participants will take part in a small group exercise to critically appraise existing search strategies to improve their skills in literature searching for EBVM. We may use speed networking, depending on the group size.

Level : Intermediate

Target audience : Veterinary and animal health librarians and information professionals; anyone with an interest in evidence-based veterinary medicine.

Preparation for the session : Yes
