Compared with urban Americans, rural residents tend to be in poorer health, have fewer doctors, hospitals and other health resources, and face more difficulty getting to health services, according to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

In South Dakota, rural physicians have a new diagnostic tool that will make up for the lack of doctors, particularly specialists, in rural facilities. Called VisualDx http://www.visualdxhealth.com/, the Web-based system gives physicians access to more than 17,000 medical images of 900 diseases — 250 of which are infectious. Doctors simply enter observations, symptoms, medical histories and test results into the search tool.
