Isabel is a medical app which allows professionals to search for possible diagnoses based on the patient’s symptoms. Isabel is not used to give you an exact diagnosis, but rather provide you with a list of likely diagnoses based on the search. Isabel is a great tool for doctors and practitioners to use in the early stages of their research to help narrow the possibilities and create an easier path to diagnose a patient.
Figure 1 is a community of over 150,000 doctors, nurses, students and other medical professionals sharing clinical cases and discussing possible treatments. Everything you discuss with other professionals is in real time and the app also allows you to search for annotated medical images which are categorized by anatomy and specialty. There are also patient photos, x-rays, charts and MRI or CAT scans available to view. Figure 1 is one of our favorite medical collaboration tools currently on the market.
MDLIVE’s new app allows you to schedule appointments or speak directly to a doctor about any questions you may have.

A doctor can provide you with a diagnosis and there is also a symptom-checker included in the app; essentially, your health is in your hands.
