The Healthcare Revolution Roadmap
Healthcare is undergoing a distinct movement along a logical trajectory from its historical focus on Acute Care to Long Term Care. While Acute Care deals with immediate and severe outbreaks of illnesses, Long Term Care focuses on continuous care over a significant span of time, ideally a life time covering both episodes of acute illnesses and exacerbations of chronic illnesses. This shift leads us to Preventive Care, delivered through early detection & treatment, resulting in reduced morbidity load on individual and society. And finally, this logical journey ends at Predictive Care, i.e. not waiting for early signs of illness but predicting and thwarting it before the illness has the chance to take root. We are moving towards a consulting/service based healthcare with focus on lifestyle changes and behavior adaptation to prevent/cut-out the roots of any instance of illness. There are clear challenges within the current health-care ecosystem that must be overcome before realizing the benefits of above mentioned revolutionary changes.

Isabel: The Award-Winning Diagnosis Reminder System
Isabel is a validated, web-based diagnosis decision support and knowledge mobilizing system with accuracy of more than 91% designed to help reduce and manage diagnosis error at the point of care.

Isabel addresses the causative factors that have a significant impact on the level and quality of patient care.

Diagnosis error – a compelling patient-safety issue Medical diagnoses that are wrong, missed, or delayed make up a large fraction of all medical errors and cause substantial suffering and injury. A 3-year project by the Cook Country Rush Developmental Center for Research in Patient Safety, funded by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) and published in 2005, found that 10 – 30% of errors are errors in diagnosis and the diagnosis errors far outnumber medication errors as a cause of claims lodged. A review of 53 autopsy studies found an average rate of 24% missed diagnoses.

A 2006 Medical Liability Insurance study found that errors in diagnosis were the leading allegations of closed claims. In Family Medicine, Internal Medicine, Pediatrics and Radiology more than 50% of lawsuits alleged a failure to diagnose.
Source : ProMutual Group study reported in the American Medical Association Newsletter, March 2006.

Failure to consider reasonable alternatives – single most common cause of misdiagnosis A 2005 Veterans Administration study funded by the National Patient Safety Foundation analyzed cases of diagnostic error involving internists and found that cognitive factors contributed to diagnostic error in 74% of cases. Premature closure, i.e., the failure to continue considering reasonable alternatives after an initial diagnosis was reached; was the single most common cause. Isabel addresses the very issue of premature closure and has been proven in clinical studies to minimize diagnosis error by reminding physicians to consider important diagnoses. Constructing a complete differential diagnosis – reinforcing basic medical training Professor Arthur Elstein, PhD at the Department of Medical Education and the School of Public Health at the University of illinois at Chicago, and expert on diagnostic reasoning in clinical medicine, spent a lifetime's work on answering questions such as: How do physicians make decisions? How can we help them make better ones? Elstein has suggested the value of compiling a complete differential diagnosis to combat the tendency to premature closure, the most common cognitive factor identified to contribute to diagnosis error. Medical students and residents are trained to construct a complete differential diagnosis for each patient.

Diagnosis Reminder System
Isabel, either as a standalone system or interfaced with PARAS EHR system gives dynamic clinical decision support, enabling clinicians to: Quickly obtain a list of likely diagnoses including bioterrorism diagnoses and causative drugs for a given set of clinical features Learn more on investigations and treatment for each diagnosis, either through a cursory quick-read, a more detailed read, or clinical information on bioterrorism from the CDC, USA Access the clinical lessons learned and errors that have been reported in relation to the diagnosis being considered View diagnosis specific annotated images or helpful list of investigations that can be performed to confirm or rule out a diagnosis Stay up to date with recent advances clinically sorted into diagnosis categories - and avoid time consuming office research using online and library resources

"Isabel suggested the correct diagnosis in 98% cases. Decision-support systems can help doctors avoid falling victim to "premature closure" - the tendency to focus on one diagnosis that seems to explain all of the symptoms, then stop considering other possibilities."
Mark Graber MD, Chief of Medical Service at the VA, Northport, NY, quoted in the Wall Street Journal. Nov 2006

“There had been software products over the years ... but Isabel was the most sophisticated product I had ever seen,"
Leslie G. Selbovitz, MD, Senior VP for Medical Affairs & CMO, Partners Newton-Wellesley Hospital, interviewed Oct 2007

"Isabel is a great tool for difficult to diagnose cases!"
Mary Lynn Allen, MD, VA - Gainesville, FL

"I am impressed with the concept and its execution. This is an innovative product that I think may soon be proved to have significant clinical utility, particularly if integrated into EMRs so that the system can operate in the background and be selected when needed, with minimal effort from the clinician. In a world of exploding biomedical knowledge, and limited human cognition, the arguments in favor of Isabel and other decision support systems are compelling. I will watch for the peer-reviewed results of further study with great interest. Institutional and individual buyers should definitely give it a look."
Gary Kantor, MD. Case Western Reserve University February 2006

"Several features I feel are innovative and useful for my practice as a pediatric infectious diseases consultant. The Diagnosis Reminder System is useful to check my differential diagnosis list against. The regional preferences search option is one I like a lot, because of the importance of travel history and geographic exposure patterns to many of my consults. For teaching and communicating with trainees and families, the Lessons Learnt and What's New options give me ready access to potentially interesting PubMed articles. I find Isabel unique and uniquely helpful"
Jeff Mckinney, M.D. Ph.D. Assistant Professor In Pediatrics andMolecular Microbiology, Washington University School of Medicine, St. Louis, Missouri Dec 2005

"Implementing PARAS has immensely enhanced the customer experience that we offer to our patients. Using PARAS, the relevant details of the patients of Narayana Nethralaya are recorded and preserved in computer systems and one can retrieve the same by just entering their name or registration numbers into the computer systems during their future visits to the hospital. Thus resulting in effective utilization of the time and immediate treatment to the patients by having their Electronic Medical Record available at finger tips to our doctors and other concerned staffs."
Dr Bhujang Shetty, Director, Narayana Nethralaya, Bangalore.

“Srishti Software has worked with us to improve every area of our hospital, from helping us to improve our production flow and order entry processes, to reporting functions. All of this has helped us to provide excellent patient care."
Dr. Manjunath, Medical Director, Sri Jayadeva Institute of Cardiology, Bangalore.

“Srishti's Healthcare Suite 'Paras' has helped us achieve full automation and better patient care. All administrative & support processes like Registration, Billing, Store, Pharmacy, Labs; are now online. Optimal utilization of resources have reduced costs. Availability of pertinent information at point of care has improved clinical outcomes. Logical scheduling has reduced waiting times - leading to greater patient satisfaction.
Dr. Jeetendra Kumar, Director, Mahavir Cancer Sansthan
