Wisconsin Health System Installs Computer System for Diagnosis Support
Date:11/10/2008

EAU CLAIRE, Wis., Nov. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Luther Midelfort-Mayo Health System is the first healthcare provider in Wisconsin to implement the Isabel System, a computer program that helps physicians make diagnoses by tapping a massive medical knowledge data base to match symptoms with diseases.

Using the new system, physicians are provided with a checklist of likely diagnoses from a database of 11,000 potential diagnoses in seconds. They can then download the latest pertinent medical research and recommended treatments for the case.

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

According to Joseph Britto, M.D, chief executive officer of Isabel Healthcare Inc., "Physicians must cope with an explosion in medical knowledge. More than 450,000 medical journal articles are published every year. New drugs and new treatments are constantly being introduced. The Isabel System provides clinicians relevant information at the point-of-care, in the hospital or physician's office."

The Isabel system is now in use at 18 major medical centers, including Children's Hospitals of Minnesota, Carle Foundation Hospital, Loma Linda Medical Center, Yale-New Haven Children's Hospital, University of Virginia Health System, Partners Newton-Wellesley Hospital and the Washington University School of Medicine to help improve diagnosis quality and reduce clinical risk.

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