Aprima had the need for more clinician-friendly code and medical vocabulary mappings that would support improved coding and billing accuracy to speed and maximize revenues.
The strength of IMO data and the extremely simple integration of the web-based IMO product with our own continue to make it a very productive and positive collaboration

Like many health systems, Children’s Hospital & Medical Center of Omaha, NE, didn’t suffer from a lack of data. Its challenge was turning that data into actionable information easily accessible to all members of the care team as part of their clinical workflows.
Our entire care team — attending physicians, nurses, residents, medical students and others — now can all share a common understanding of the patient’s problems.

The process of mapping and maintaining links between customer systems and the Medicalis knowledgebase is time-consuming and inefficient without standard terminology. IMO® was approached to remedy this.
Medicalis understood the whole domain of disease states coded by ICD-9 was a heavy lift for us to incorporate initially, and is exponentially more complicated to maintain over time. We realized we would have to add resources to do that, or partner with someone."
