"Patients are researching their symptoms and medical conditions online and I'd prefer they utilize a reputable evidence based source of information such as Isabel. Charles Bareis, MD, FACP, CMO, MacNeal Hospital

Isabel Healthcare will introduce new triage component of the Isabel Symptom Checker at HIMSS15 Annual Conference and Exhibition April 12-15, 2015 in Chicago, IL. Isabel will present “Engagement Tools to Drive Efficiency” Tuesday April 14, 2015 in the Clinical and Business Knowledge Center booth 5484.

Isabel Healthcare will present information and tools designed to support both patient engagement and clinical efficiency. Providers are pressed for time and ED overcrowded with patients that potentially can be seen in more appropriate care venues. Providing patients with care redirection based on their current situation can dramatically improve the current conundrum.

Patients are going to the internet to search for health information. By providing them with a trusted source, organizations can improve the patient experience and drive them to appropriate resources and information. Patients enter their symptoms and receive a list of possible diagnoses. From there, the patient can be directed to the appropriate physicians, relevant clinical content, wellness programs, and patient education information and triaged to access the appropriate venue of care; all designed to reduce patient leakage and improve patient engagement. Access is provided from the consumer facing website or through patient portals, providing the organization a consistent method to engage the patient in a number of touch points.

“Having Isabel’s Symptom Checker on a hospital website or in a patient portal helps hospitals and healthcare systems assist their patients in finding valuable information online” said Don Bauman, CEO of Isabel Healthcare, “This information is vetted, easy to understand and can lead to better interactions between patients and their doctors.”
