Ann Arbor, MI and Laval Quebec, Canada (PRWEB) October 06, 2017
Isabel Healthcare and QuestionDoctors.com announced today their partnership to make the Isabel Symptom Checker available to all users of their crowdsourced network of physician services. The Isabel Symptom Checker is uniquely positioned for the telemedicine/telehealth space as it is medically validated and empowers consumers with information to understand their symptoms, get information about diseases and assists with getting to the correct care setting. The Isabel Symptom Checker is the only consumer tool that allows input with free text natural language (not forcing the user to a pick list of symptoms, a cumbersome avatar or to answer 25 to 35 questions). Each diagnosis provided is also linked to consumer level medical information, providing the user with up to date, and understandable information. It is a tool which enables the patient to research their symptoms and empowers them to discuss the findings with the QDc provider as partners in care in a meaningful way.
Isabel and QuestionDoctors.com share in the mission of making medical information available to as many people that we can.
“QuestionDoctors.com is a top provider of doctor answer crowdsourced platform. Thus, it is critically important that QuestionsDoctors.com provide their patients with reputable tools that can help improve their health and wellness” stated P Bertolissi, President. “We are pleased to include the Isabel Symptom Checker in our product offerings for all patients utilizing our crowdsourced, priority answer and online doctor video visit services.”
The challenge for both consumer and provider is distilling the pertinent and relevant information that can assist in patient-provider interaction. Providing users of the QuestionDoctors.com site with access to tools like the Isabel Symptom Checker allows them to interact with a highly vetted resource very similar to the one doctors have used for years to expand their differential diagnosis. It allows both the provider and consumer to ask “what else could be going on”.
“Consumers are turning more and more to the Internet to research information around diagnoses, the opportunity is to direct them to trusted sites rather than general searching to get their information.” stated Don Bauman CEO of Ann Arbor based Isabel Healthcare, “Providing access to the Isabel Symptom Checker to the users of the Question Doctors.com site assists with engaging them in their healthcare and further empowering them to have informed conversations with the QDc providers”
