Better Day™ Health’s clinical documentation application, leveraging Isabel’s differential diagnosis decision support engine, is transforming patient interaction in clinical settings and significantly reducing the time associated with EHR documentation

"This integration is another example of fully embedding differential diagnosis support available within the clinicians’ workflow"

Isabel Healthcare announced today that its partner Better Day™ Health (Better Day™) is now using Isabel’s differential diagnosis decision support engine in orthopedic and ambulatory clinics. Better Day™ combines advanced speech technologies, mobile devices and integrated differential diagnosis decision support in novel ways to speed the process of diagnosing, coding, billing and documenting a patient visit. Practices using Better Day™ see revenues increase and operating costs decrease as a result.

“The Better Day™ software significantly improves the way physicians interact with their patients by removing the computer barrier from the exam room,” said Don Bauman, chief executive officer, Isabel Healthcare, “Integrating the Isabel differential diagnosis decision support solution into Better Day™ assists in streamlining decision making and improving efficiency. This integration is another example of fully embedding differential diagnosis support available within the clinicians’ workflow and Isabel is pleased to be partnered with innovators like Better Day™.”

Peter Ragusa, MD, MPH, CEO and co-founder of Better Day™, said, “We’ve found that doctors are some of the world’s most expensive clerical workers, as they use valuable time to fill out electronic health records (EHRs) and compile medical histories. Our goal is to help doctors see more patients, in less time, without all the unnecessary EHR data entry and burdensome paperwork. Additionally, using Isabel Healthcare’s decision support solution helps providers to understand the range of diagnostic options prior to selecting the diagnosis and helps to drive continuous improvements in the quality of care.”

Practice impact results were recently presented at the 2016 Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) conference where Dr. John Noble of Center for Orthopaedics - Imperial Health in Lake Charles, LA highlighted the benefits his practice enjoyed including reducing the cost and time associated with EHR documentation, improve practice revenues and increased patient satisfaction.

Better Day and Isabel transform the patient encounter and compress the time and cost associated with diagnosis, coding, billing and patient charting.
