CLINICAL DECISION SUPPORT

Isabel

Physicians around the world use Isabel to help construct or broaden a differential diagnosis. By entering the information normally captured in a patient workup, Isabel provides physicians with a list of possible diagnoses to help them construct their thinking and make an accurate final diagnosis quickly and easily at the point of care.

The Premier Diagnosis Decision Support Tool

<em>Isabel</em> helps clinicians improve diagnosis quality, leading to more cost-effective care through:

  • More appropriate tests and referrals
  • More appropriate admissions
  • Reduced length of stay
  • Increased patient satisfaction
  • Reduced clinical risk
  • Ensuring the appropriateness of care
  • Reducing litigation risk
  • Supporting medical education and training
  • Encouraging review of the latest evidence via DynaMed

A Valuable Resource at the Point of Care 

<em>Isabel</em> can be deployed either as an integrated part of the electronic health record (EHR) system or as a standalone application. <em>Isabel</em> uses the information routinely captured during the patient workup—whether free text or structured data—and instantly provides a differential diagnosis checklist for review.

<em>Isabel</em> flags critical “don’t miss diagnoses” and diagnoses that could cause significant harm if not considered. When integrated into an EHR system, Isabel can provide one-click seamless diagnosis support with no additional data entry.

<em>Isabel</em> has set standards for the clinical testing of decision support systems in health care, having undergone a robust, peer-reviewed validation process to demonstrate its accuracy, effectiveness and value.

Dozens of articles, including independent clinical studies, multi-center collaborative studies and internal studies have appeared in prestigious peer-reviewed journals.
