Differential Diagnosis - Who uses Isabel and When? Ambulatory setting

Posted by Dawn Bonsor on Fri, Feb 01, 2013 @ 11:58 AM

As Isabel is sometimes regarded as ‘disruptive’, we thought that an overview of “who” uses Isabel and “when” would be helpful to both current  and future Isabel users to understand how it can often make a major significant impact in patient outcomes with no negative impact on workflows.  This is the first in a series of three blog posts.  Below is a synopsis of “who” uses Isabel followed by instances of “when” they use it. We thought the best way to illustrate this would be to provide some actual cases.  The series will look at the ambulatory, emergency and inpatient settings.  Today’s blog post will cover some cases that came from the ambulatory setting and how diagnostic decision support (DDS) helped them.

Isabel is currently mainly used by:

  • Physicians and PA’s in ED’s, hospitals, urgent care clinics and Physician practices
  • Nurse Practitioners
  • Medical Schools
  • Residency Programs
  • Nursing Schools
  • Legal and risk management teams
