Improving Clinical and Administrative Workflows
IMO® Problem (IT) provides clinicians a way to enter a diagnosis for a patient Problem List without altering the language they would normally use for that diagnosis. IMO® Problem (IT) solves the problem of forcing clinicians to remember and use the often awkward and cumbersome ICD-9 coding language when documenting in the EHR.
In practice, clinicians use many different synonyms, acronyms, eponyms, abbreviations, and other terms to describe the same diseases and problems. These alternate forms are often more familiar and frequently used in the clinical domain rather than the standard ICD-9 coding terms. Unlike other electronic medical records software vocabularies, IMO provides an interface to the standard ICD-9-CM-driven terminology in the EHR search with an improved 260,000+ term search that expresses clinical intent while at the same time providing the correct coding for that intent. A client survey shows that 93% of IMO® Problem (IT) users are more satisfied with their EHR with the IMO solution. Clinician friendly terms, which capture clinical intent and result in billable codes, increase physician EHR usage.
