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.
Building a successful relationship takes effort and empathy. The partnership between patient and provider is no exception. Our latest insight brief explores a number of ways in which the electronic health record can be used to strengthen this important bond.
Reimbursements, population health, long-term outcomes – the value-based care model is changing how many health systems around the country think about these concepts. It’s a lot to manage, and it takes thoughtful planning to do it right. Get a jump start on designing your strategies with our latest eBook, Managing the financials of population health: Challenges and solutions.
Earlier this year, the US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) finalized new rules for the 21st Century Cures Act that require health systems to increase their interoperability efforts and facilitate greater EHR integration. Smart strategies for the collection and organization of this data will be critical for success – without them, providers may be overwhelmed, not helped, by the sheer volume of new data.
When the medical community encountered the Zika virus outbreak in 2015, IMO was ready to help with new terminology to document the disease. We learned some lessons in that situation – ones that are helping guide our response to the current novel coronavirus pandemic. IMO VP of Global Clinical Services, Steven Rube, MD, explains our past and current responses to these crises, and talks about how what we learned in 2015 is informing our efforts now.
Increased interoperability – specifically, the sharing of electronic health data between systems – can be an enormous help for clinicians. But as new federal rules are put into action, clinicians may soon be facing too much of a good thing. Download our latest white paper for more on the coming “data tsunami.”
Listen to IMO nurse informaticist, David Bocanegra and product manager Alex Dawson as they explore the obstacles to effective surgical scheduling and how organizations can optimize their processes for greater success.
In order for health information systems to become more valuable to providers, they must evolve to transform and package data in a way that serves the clinician at the point of care, for the problem they’re trying to solve.
As IMO expands into the insights space – helping providers to extract greater value from EHR data – the importance of our robust clinical interface terminology solutions has come into even sharper focus. Since terminology is the foundation of all that we do, we asked Vidhya Sivakumaran, our Director of Content Delivery, to take us back to the basics and explain how we build medical coding software – and why the process is integral to your EHR experience.
IMO’s Chief Medical Officer, Andrew Kanter, MD, MPH explores how technology can help healthcare systems to optimize performance, while combatting physician burnout and re-engaging clinicians for success.
Leveraging health information technology (HIT) to improve the physician experience is key to achieving the Quadruple Aim. IMO’s Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Andrew Kanter, discusses this important objective in his latest white paper.
