Whether you’re thinking about patient engagement at the point of care, measuring value-based care performance, or implementing population health initiatives, value sets have become an essential tool for healthcare providers from coast to coast.

The ability to precisely identify specific patient cohorts is critical, but developing the value sets necessary to do so can be a long, painstaking, and labor-intensive process – and the maintenance of value sets can be just as challenging as creating them.

IMO Precision Sets, IMO’s value set solution, is continuously curated and carefully maintained by a dedicated team of clinical terminologists. Leveraging the power of the IMO Core terminology portfolio, IMO Precision Sets eliminates the inaccuracies, resource drains and inefficiencies of DIY solutions.

Watch the video below to discover how easy it is to access IMO Precision Sets and integrate them into your EHR.
