“We are excited about the momentum the report is creating on tackling this important issue and about the role the Isabel tools can play in assisting both providers and consumers.” Don Bauman, CEO Isabel Healthcare

Isabel Healthcare will participate in the Diagnostic Error in Medicine 8th International Conference, September 27-29, 2015 in Washington, D.C.
On the heels of the release of the Institute of Medicine’s latest report “Improving Diagnosis in Healthcare", Isabel Healthcare will be featuring its suite of tools that assist healthcare providers and consumers with diagnosis decision ,making. The report suggests that most people will experience at least one wrong or delayed diagnosis at some point in their lives and provides several recommendations related to reducing these errors.
The Isabel diagnosis decision support tool assists providers with creating or broadening their differential. Isabel is used by clinicians as part of their workflow; either standalone, integrated with the EMR, or on a mobile device providing them access to information that aides in considering possible diagnoses. The Isabel Symptom Checker empowers healthcare consumers with the ability to ask their provider “What else could be going on?” The report suggests that several areas that can be explored include using technology like diagnosis decision support, encouraging consumers to engage, and a review of medical education, especially clinical reasoning. The Isabel suite is uniquely positioned to assist in all three of these areas.
“We commend the IOM for this bold report on diagnosis error,” stated Don Bauman, chief executive officer at Ann Arbor based Isabel Healthcare, “We are excited about the momentum the report is creating on tackling this important issue and about the role the Isabel tools can play in assisting both providers and consumers.”
