Isabel Healthcare to Feature Triage Tool for Patient Engagement at HIMSS
Isabel Healthcare introduces new triage tool used to patients and consumers to appropriate
venue of care. The triage tool is driven by the Isabel Symptom Checker
Ann Arbor, MI (PRWEB) April 10, 2015 -- Isabel Healthcare will introduce new triage component of the Isabel Symptom Checker at HIMSS15 Annual Conference and Exhibition April 12-15, 2015 in Chicago, IL. Isabel
will present “Engagement Tools to Drive Efficiency” Tuesday April 14, 2015 in the Clinical and Business
Knowledge Center booth 5484.
Isabel Healthcare will present information and tools designed to support both patient engagement and clinical
efficiency. Providers are pressed for time and ED overcrowded with patients that potentially can be seen in
more appropriate care venues. Providing patients with care redirection based on their current situation can
dramatically improve the current conundrum.
Patients are going to the internet to search for health information. By providing them with a trusted source,
organizations can improve the patient experience and drive them to appropriate resources and information.
Patients enter their symptoms and receive a list of possible diagnoses. From there, the patient can be directed to
the appropriate physicians, relevant clinical content, wellness programs, and patient education information and
triaged to access the appropriate venue of care; all designed to reduce patient leakage and improve patient
engagement. Access is provided from the consumer facing website or through patient portals, providing the
organization a consistent method to engage the patient in a number of touch points.
“Having Isabel’s Symptom Checker on a hospital website or in a patient portal helps hospitals and healthcare
systems assist their patients in finding valuable information online” said Don Bauman, CEO of Isabel
Healthcare, “This information is vetted, easy to understand and can lead to better interactions between patients
and their doctors.”
