The concept of pushing knowledge downward has been around for several years. As a result, ISeeYouCare’s platform is an example of a tool that allows medical practitioners to do just that.
In a paper published in 2007, “The Great Ideas of Clinical Science: 17 Principles That Every Mental Health Professional Should Understand” (Scott O. Lilienfeld and William T. O’Donohue, ed.), the authors point out:
“society is pushing knowledge downward, with practical nurses doing the work of registered nurses, who in turn are doing much of the work of primary care physicians who have included in their practices the lower tiers of geriatric, obstetrical, surgical, and dermatological procedures. This trend, opposed by medical/surgical specialists, has gained momentum and wide acceptance by the consumer.”
Pushing Knowledge Downward By the Use of Differential Diagnoses Tools
Our platform includes comprehensive disease management protocol capabilities. Moreover, it is based on an FDA approved differential diagnosis system. The system is certified at 95.1% accurate when given three or more symptoms. This capability alone is a substantial development in the advancement of patient care. Clinicians worldwide trust the diagnosing engine behind our platform. It was associated with the highest rates of diagnoses retrieval compared to all other electronic differential diagnosis generators. Consequently, it enables providers to broaden their differential decision making. This platform has set a new industry standard for accuracy, ease of use and breadth of coverage.
Additionally, it supports one of the driving objectives of ISeeYouCare; increasing the effectiveness of non-licensed caregivers (PA’s, NP’s and RN’s). According to the Association of American Medical Colleges, “Under every combination of scenarios modeled, the United States will face a shortage of physicians over the next decade”. The projections show a shortage ranging between 61,700 and 94,700 MDs. The differential diagnosis system helps to mitigate the loss of so many of our seasoned physicians.
