With the addition of Children's Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota, Isabel is now used for diagnosis decision support at four (or 10 percent) of the 43 hospitals which form the Child Health Corporation of America, a purchasing and performance improvement network of leading, independent children's hospitals.

The Isabel system, now available in a variety of configurations to serve physicians in both adult and children's medicine, was first marketed to children's hospitals in 2001.

Children's Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota is the seventh-largest children's health care organization in the U.S., with 332 beds at its two hospital campuses in St. Paul and Minneapolis. The system was named one of "America's Best Children's Hospitals" in 2008 by U.S.News & World Report. To view the list, see http://health.usnews.com/sections/health/best-hospitals

Based in Eau Claire, Luther Midelfort operates as part of the Mayo Health System and offers a wide range of medical services in several locations in western Wisconsin.

The Isabel system is now in use and improving diagnosis decision making, patient safety and quality of care at a number of major medical centers, including Loma Linda Medical Center, Yale-New Haven Children's Hospital, University of Virginia Health System, Seattle Children's Hospital, Washington University School of Medicine and Carle Foundation Hospital.

The Isabel system enables a physician to enter a patient's signs, symptoms, results of tests and investigations and instantly receive a checklist of likely diagnoses to consider. Data can also be sent to the web-based Isabel from an organization's EMR system enabling single-click diagnosis decision support.

In Isabel, physicians can click on a diagnosis to access diagnosis specific knowledge from medical textbooks, journals, client's protocols, pathways, order sets and web-resources. The knowledge base contains all age groups, has 11,000 diagnoses including bio-terrorism and other emergency preparedness situations. It also contains 4,200 causative drugs. Isabel is available as a web-based stand-alone subscription or can be purchased interfaced with several EMR partner systems.

Based in Falls Church, VA, Isabel Healthcare was founded in 2000 by Jason Maude and Dr. Joseph Britto, a pediatrician. The company is named after Maude's young daughter, who almost died in 1999 after a potentially fatal illness was not recognized by a physician.
