Northbrook, IL – Feb. 11, 2019 – Intelligent Medical Objects (IMO) and AORN Syntegrity are proud to announce that Periop IT (now IMO Core Periop) content is available in the Epic Foundation System.

“IMO is excited to bring customers another piece of our product portfolio, providing better starting points to Periop IT content with Epic,” said Ann Barnes, CEO of IMO.

Periop IT streamlines the standardization of surgical scheduling dictionaries and maps them to healthcare code sets, such as CPT-4 and ICD10-PCS. Hospitals may achieve benefits such as maximum reimbursement, accurate scheduling, and improved definitions of workflow efficiencies for the perioperative setting. By delivering quality content within a hospital’s EHR that is accessible for perioperative members, utilization and satisfaction can be enhanced across all care teams.

Periop IT content allows clients to be able to more efficiently leverage the leading perioperative expertise of AORN Syntegrity, a subsidiary of the Association of periOperative Nurses (AORN), and IMO, the developer of the most widely accepted medical terminology solution for the management of medical vocabularies and software applications at healthcare organizations worldwide. Periop IT enhances claims and reporting workflows, optimizes communication and strives to improve patient outcomes, procedure scheduling, and reduce operation and IT workloads.

“AORN Syntegrity and IMO have been helping healthcare organizations with their surgical content for years. Using Periop IT will help hospitals work towards improving patient outcomes and streamlining their content to improve billing and scheduling efficiencies,”
said Janice Kelly, MS, RN-BC, President of AORN Syntegrity.
