IMO's value proposition is founded on providing and maintaining clinical interface terminology for customers to support "dictionary health". Dictionary Health refers to how current a dictionary is with respect to terms (problems, procedures, etc.) as well as the associated maps from the various code systems.
IMO's migration service connects your terms to the IMO term and future proofs your dictionary as part of our Long Term Terminology Management solution. This process ensures that maps to all code systems are maintained accurately with a maximum level of specificity over time. IMO maintains user-friendly dictionary terms and associated code maps and provides monthly releases to ensure our customers have access to the best, most current content available.
IMO's terminology and value that customers leverage is substantial:
Alternatives to using the IMO term include a reliance on code-to-code mapping. Code-to-code mappings are frequently inaccurate and error-prone. Mapping to the IMO term ensures that maps to all code systems are maintained accurately with a maximum level of specificity over time.
Maintaining dictionary terms and code maps is hard work. IMO's migration services and Long Term Terminology Management provides a solution for you and your team so that you can focus on the value-add capability that IMO's terminology provides your organization.
IMO has performed over 1,000 migrations in the last five years. We consistently evaluate the process and our customer engagement to provide the best support and tooling for your needs.
During the migration, IMO will work with you to:
After a migration, the amount of time you spend monitoring changes in SNOMED®, LOINC, or other code systems will be greatly reduced. IMO continuously updates our content. The changes, improvements, and additions update are directly updated to the dictionary terms you have linked to IMO's terms.
IMO’s content includes mappings to all the medical codes you’ll need – ICD-10-CM, ICD-9-CM, SNOMED®, LOINC, CPT®, RxNorm, and many more. Once connected to IMO’s content, your terms will have the most up-to-date and accurate medical codes with frequent updates.
Send your data to IMO and let our team of clinicians, lab professionals, and coding experts migrate your terms and dictionaries for you. IMO takes pride in combining our clinical and technological expertise to process your data and match it to our content.
