What You Should Know:
– The Vermont Department of Health has launched a first-of-a-kind program to support healthcare professionals with timely information on disease diagnosis, testing, treatment and patient education resources — improving public health response statewide. The program is powered by a partnership with VisualDx and is available to Vermont healthcare professionals.
– The Clinician Support Initiative provides access to a vast collection of images and clinical information about public health threats, including hMPXV (human monkeypox virus), COVID-19 and Lyme disease. Available on the web or through an app, these tools help improve the speed and accuracy of diagnosis and facilitate the timely reporting to public health for diseases of public health significance.
– A phased rollout is currently underway, and all Vermont medical professionals can expect access by the end of the year.
