Surg IT

IMO Surg IT is a library of surgical scheduling procedures updated and maintained by IMO clinicians and attributed to industry standard coding systems. The use of Surg IT helps ensure proper searching, scheduling, communicating, and preauthorization that can save your organization time and dramatically improve Medicare reimbursement.

Why Surg IT?

  • Avoid denials resulting from inpatient-only procedures
  • Improve procedure searching by using aliases and CPT® codes optimized for search in your EMR
  • Shift cumbersome surgical scheduling procedures to leverage IMO's CPT® mapping allocations
  • Reduce the amount of staff time from tracking required updates to CPT®/ICD-10-PCS groupers for quality reporting
  • Use IMO content to streamline surgical history documentation in your EMR
  • Optimize procedure granularity for problematic procedure scheduling workflow
