ANN ARBOR, MICH.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Isabel is pleased to announce the addition of Donald H. Bauman, Jr. as Chief Executive Officer responsible for North American Operations. With this addition, Isabel is responding to the growing demand for its diagnosis decision support solution. Mr. Bauman brings over 25 years of field and leadership experience to Isabel. In past assignments, he has been successful in accelerating market penetration and commercialization of innovative technologies that have transformed healthcare practices and increased patient safety.
"I am delighted that we attracted an executive of Don’s caliber and solid track record to lead our US operations,” said Jason Maude, Founder of Isabel Healthcare. "We look forward to Don developing a strategic business that advances our diagnosis decision support solution in the US market."
The Isabel system was conceived 10 years ago as a direct response to the near-fatal misdiagnosis of Maude’s daughter Isabel who developed necrotizing fasciitis, a well-described complication of chicken pox. Isabel was seen by both the primary care physician and the local hospital’s ED, and both failed to recognize the typical clinical features of necrotizing fasciitis and sent her home. The Isabel decision support tool named after Maude’s daughter not only assists in making the right diagnosis but also helps answer clinical questions with up-to-date knowledge related to specific diagnoses.
“It is an honor to be a part of an organization that has such a unique origin, a strong team and a product that is so well positioned to make a difference in our healthcare system, especially with the changes taking place in healthcare,” stated Bauman. “I look forward to this new challenge.
The Isabel system provides support for physicians at the most initiating, seminal point of the care process, the diagnosis decision. “Getting the diagnosis right the first time has tremendous clinical, financial and legal impact, especially in the context of healthcare reform,” noted Bauman. “Isabel has shown to have a significant positive impact on diagnosis decision making and referral management.”
