Isabel Healthcare and the National Institute of Whole Health Announce
Partnership for a Pilot Study Using the Isabel Diagnostic Support Tool and
Partnership Applies the Isabel Knowledge Organizer and Diagnostic Support Tools to NIWH
Pilot Study on Unsolved, Chronic Medical Cases
Ann Arbor, MI and Wellesley, MA (PRWEB) July 07, 2015 -- Isabel Healthcare and the National Institute of
Whole Health (NIWH) have jointly announced a partnership focused on providing knowledge organizing and
differential diagnostic support tools for credentialed health professionals addressing unsolved, chronic medical
case studies. The study will be conducted with NIWH trained patient health educators, utilizing the Knowledge
Organizer and diagnostic support tools developed by Isabel Healthcare. The population will be unresolved,
acute and chronic patient case studies, provided through CrowdMed.com, a crowd sourced case management
on-line platform. The pilot kicked off on May 1, 2015.
There is a significant under-served population of Americans who have not received a solution to their health
condition or concerns. Many are now seeking help through diagnostic support tools such as those developed by
Isabel Healthcare, and through open-sourced, collaborative feedback that is available through CrowdMed.com.
Combining both of these resources, as well as adding credentialed patient health educators who are also trained
as health detectives, the study seeks to improve outcomes for the undiagnosed or incorrectly diagnosed patient
who often has no other avenues to pursue.
“We are delighted to be partnering with NIWH on this project and potentially assisting patients getting answers
they desperately seek,” said Don Bauman, chief executive officer of Isabel Healthcare. “The partnership
represents an innovative approach and alternative to assisting in these unresolved cases.”
Dr. Georgianna Donadio, Program Director of NIWH, states “NIWH is delighted to be partnering with Isabel
Healthcare on our pilot study. The study will showcase Isabel’s ground breaking applications and technology,
as well as NIWH’s post-professional patient health education and health detective trainings. Isabel’s innovative
leadership in producing diagnostic and knowledge organization technology is much needed and very
