Addition of IMO® Problem (IT)™ Terminology and IMO® Procedure (IT)™ Improves Clinical Documentation to Support Better Patient Care
Northbrook, IL and San Jose, CA (March 12, 2014) – Intelligent Medical Objects, Inc. (IMO), developers of the most-widely used and physician-preferred terminology service for electronic health records (EHR) systems, and Bizmatics, Inc., makers of PrognoCIS, a top healthcare software and services leader based in San Jose, CA AKA the Silicon Valley, announced today that IMO’s market-leading medical interface terminology will be integrated into PrognoCIS®, Bizmatics’ Electronic Medical Record and Practice Management platform. The addition of IMO Problem (IT)™ Terminology and IMO Procedure (IT)™ Terminology improves the ability of PrognoCIS users to build more clinically relevant problem lists and order sets, significantly improving the quality of patient documentation.
IMO’s interface terminology allows clinicians to build problem lists and capture true clinical intent that leverages their existing medical terms while preparing to meet meaningful use attestation criteria. IMO’s terminology service contains over 460,000 clinician-friendly terms that are seamlessly mapped to reference coding systems including SNOMED CT ®, ICD-9-CM, ICD-10-CM, RxNORM®, CPT®, and LOINC®.
“We’re pleased that Bizmatics’ leadership understands that preserving the clinical team’s intent greatly improves patient care while supporting compliance with ICD-10, Meaningful Use, and other regulatory coding requirements,” says Frank Naeymi-Rad, Ph.D., Chairman, and Chief Executive Officer of IMO.
“Bizmatics and IMO each have a history of innovation in information technology in the rapidly changing healthcare environment and share a vision of offering premier customizable applications to healthcare providers,“ explains Vinay Deshpande, Co-Founder, President and CEO of Bizmatics.
The integration of IMO’s terminology into PrognoCIS will be available to users in mid-2014.
