Isabel Healthcare and ReelDx Partner to Provide Next-Generation Clinical Education Suite
Isabel-ReelDx partnership provides unparalleled resource for case based clinical learning
Ann Arbor, MI (PRWEB) September 08, 2014 -- Isabel Healthcare today announced a partnership agreement
with ReelDx, Inc., the leading hosting platform for creating and sharing HIPAA-compliant clinical video, to
provide the next-generation clinical learning platform. The companies will deliver a solution that combines the
Isabel Diagnosis Educator tool with robust, real patient video cases from ReelDx Education.
This combination of strong diagnosis decision support with real patient video cases creates a powerful learning
opportunity for clinical learners. Students review case notes and a video of the real patient-provider interaction.
They then determine the relevant clinical details of the case to suggest differential diagnosis, testing and
treatment. Next, they use the embedded Isabel diagnosis decision support tool to reflect and revise their
findings. When finished, the learner’s inputs are compared to the standard for the case. The combination of rich
case presentation, use of clinical decision tools, and research-based assessment and feedback is unique in
“We are very excited about the integration of ReelDx cases with Isabel’s education platform,” said Don
Bauman, chief executive officer of Isabel Healthcare. “Adding ReelDx cases further enhances the platform with
real interactions, assisting users in getting to the right diagnosis and treatment as soon as possible.”
Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science (RFUMS) in North Chicago, Ill., is the first institution to
take advantage of Isabel populated with ReelDx cases as an integrated and critical part of the medical school’s
"Technologies like ReelDx and Isabel are helping to teach future generations of clinicians how to more
effectively and more accurately diagnose patients,” said Jim Carlson, Ph.D., PA-C, dean of the College of
Health Professions and associate vice president for clinical simulation at RFUMS. “Together, they offer the
opportunity to better engage students in realistic case-based learning with the goal of improving critical
thinking and clinical reasoning skills."
RFUMS medical students are benefitting from the educational value of the Isabel tool, which assists them with
thinking through diagnostic possibilities by creating a differential list. Isabel not only assists by asking the
question, “What else might be going on?” but it also provides access to the rich library of ReelDx cases to
enhance case-based learning.
“Integrating the ReelDx cases with Isabel’s clinical support tools just makes sense,” said Dr. David Spiro, co-
founder and chief medical officer of ReelDx. “ReelDx Education exists to help students and clinicians alike
master the art of medicine. Video cases provide a robust view into the realities of patient-clinician engagement,
and allow users to hone clinical decision making in a realistic setting.”
