At the heart of all the Isabel DDx systems is its cutting edge, proprietary Disease Pattern Recognition Engine Platform (DPREP). The engine is powered by innovative, statistical natural language processing software which understands the meaning and context of unstructured free text. This is applied to our medical database of disease presentations which comprises thousands of carefully selected, evidence-based documents describing the multiple ways that over 10,000 conditions can present. The engine has effectively been trained over almost two decades on virtually every known possible presentation of the majority of all known diseases. The initial results from the Isabel DPREP are then passed through an additional set of algorithms tuned over many years to ensure that only those results relevant to the patient’s age, gender and geographical region are displayed. It is this unique structure, very different from the more traditional rules-based systems, which gives Isabel many inherent advantages. Benefiting from close to two decades of continuous development, validation and clinician feedback, Isabel today is widely acknowledged as the most accurate and versatile system available. When clinicians say they have ‘Isabeled’ a patient you know they have thought carefully about their diagnosis and are providing high quality, cost effective care.
