Corrine McIsaac, PhD, RN
Founder & CEO
For Corrine McIsaac, it's one thing to see something that needs to be changed. It's another to do something to actually create change.
As a Manager in Home Care with the Nova Scotia Department of Health (NS DOH), Corrine saw first hand how ineffective care practices and inefficient resources were challenging our health care organizations. She also knew that better data alone would not create the change needed to improve patient lives. The data needed to be transformed into evidence-based knowledge that supported the efforts of health care workers to improve care and cost outcomes.
It was at this time that Corrine set herself on a path to improve the quality, safety and efficiency of disease management.
Her hard work and vision culminated in the development of best practice interventions for wound care, and the creation of a tracking system used to demonstrate $3 million in savings to the Province of Nova Scotia within its first year of use. These cost savings were realized as a result of improved patient care and decreased nursing visits.
Other health care organizations began asking for assistance in applying a similar methodology within their particular practice environments. It was then that Corrine left NS DOH and started Health Outcomes Worldwide.
