Identifying precise patient populations sounds fairly straightforward, yet many charged with this task soon find it’s anything but. Fortunately, medical value sets* can be used to help health systems find patients with specific conditions and classify them into groups. But not all value sets are created equal. Standardized sets, for example, are often poorly maintained or aren’t comprehensive enough to meet the needs of a health system or clinical team.

IMO Precision Chronic Condition Sets is a suite of value sets specifically created to solve this problem and help hospitals manage chronic conditions, such as diabetes or obesity. With this solution, users can develop accurate patient registries for population health management initiatives and effectively monitor outcomes.
