Organization is everywhere these days, whether it’s targeted at getting your house, your finances, your job, or your life in order. So, it makes sense that there’s a need for organization within the medical field as well. What to tackle first? The medical problem list – an often-disorganized hub with an overwhelming amount of information – is a strong candidate for a revamp.
Clinical Interface Terminology
When COVID-19 first hit the US, clinicians struggled to accurately document cases of the new coronavirus, and the health IT industry quickly mobilized to provide the needed clinical terminology. Now, six months into the pandemic, COVID “long-haulers” are highlighting the ongoing need for appropriate clinical language to document side effects of the virus.
Electronic health records were never designed to be all things to all providers, leaving the door wide open for creative third-party vendors to identify opportunities for improvement and develop innovative solutions.
Every set of standardized clinical terminology has routine adjustments and updates. For some, there are annual revisions and for others, changes happen multiple times a year. Then, there are the medical coding terms that need to be added off-cycle. Having trouble keeping up? We’re here to help.
Developing a clinical interface terminology solution – or any medical coding software – requires a deep understanding of technology, code mapping, EHR integration – the list goes on. But creating a solution that truly works for the end user? That’s where empathy takes the spotlight.
