Abstract
Dahlgren Memorial Library’s Clinical
Informationist provides information support
for clinicians at MedStar Georgetown
University Hospital (MGUH) on daily patient
rounds. As part of this support, the
informationist assists clinicians with using
the Isabel diagnostic decision support
program to generate differential diagnoses for their patients.

Isabel enhances the diagnostic determination process by complementing the expertise
of the clinician, minimizing risk at the most important decision point in the care process.
Studies suggest that clinicians who ‘Isabel’ their patients at an early stage are able to reduce
clinical risk by ensuring that important possible diagnoses have not been missed.
