“The use of video has exploded in people’s personal and professional lives. It has become an invaluable tool for learning in nearly every facet of education, except for the education of medical practitioners,” said Dr. David Spiro co-founder and chief medical officer, ReelDx. “We seek to change that. ReelDx enables quick access to a series of cases in response to searches on symptom, sign or diagnosis. This allows any medical professional to get support in the diagnostic or treatment moment, and more effectively learn in the context of their specific practice.”
In partnership with a nationwide network of physicians in practice, as well as academic health centers like Oregon Health & Science University, ReelDx has produced the most robust libraries of medical diagnostic videos available today. The libraries are useful to higher education institutions, hospital and clinical environments, and individual healthcare professionals.
Each case features an easy to digest one-minute video shot by a clinician or medical videographer focusing on the presentation of key signs and symptoms, including the patient’s own description of what is wrong. Many also feature expert commentary and supplemental images to provide additional insight into the case. Every case also features a description of research-based standards of care and links to relevant journal materials. The cases are viewable on any web-enabled device, including tablets and smartphones.
ReelDx cases are accredited for AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™,providing engaging and relevant continuing medical education for any medical professional.
The concentrated experience offered by video cases helps professionals hone their diagnostic and patient care abilities. ReelDx offers the best choice for institutions to help their students and staff utilize case studies in classes and on rounds, and to become a contributing part of the largest video medical case study system in the world.
“ReelDx offers a valuable new paradigm in medical education–once only available to a treating physician. The easy-to-use visual format allows for any viewer to witness a focused clinical encounter,” said James Bennett MD, pediatrician, Pediatric Group of Monterey. “ReelDx will significantly improve medical understanding for parents, students and even seasoned practitioners.”
