Newton-Wellesley Hospital Implements Isabel Diagnosis Decision Support System

October 3, 2007 - Newton-Wellesley Hospital said today it is implementing Isabel Healthcare’s decision support system to aid in formulating accurate and timely diagnoses.
Newton-Wellesley is the first Massachusetts hospital to provide its 1,100 physicians access to the Isabel technology system. Dr. Jim Kaplan, a member of the Newton-Wellesley Board of Trustees, brought the Web-based decision support system to the hospital, believing its use at the point of care will help further ensure accurate diagnoses.
“The evidence is overwhelming: early, accurate intervention is crucial in managing disease,” said Les Selbovitz, M.D., senior vice president for medical affairs and chief medical officer at Newton-Wellesley Hospital. “The first step is timely, effective diagnosis. Our newly launched, diagnostic decision-making initiative underpins Newton-Wellesley’s overarching goal-providing the best patient care available. Additionally, Isabel Healthcare is working closely with us to comprehensively monitor, measure and manage diagnosis decision-making, institution-wide.”
The Isabel system offers physicians with up-to-date and relevant information using a clinical database of more than 11,000 diagnoses.
