Partnership provides unparalleled resource for clinical learning
Ann Arbor, Mich.—September 8, 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 diagnostic 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 medical education.
“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 curriculum.
“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.
