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.
In the midst of the novel coronavirus pandemic, updates to COVID-19 coding guidelines, terms, and names are important for patient care, but challenging to manage. IMO’s clinical, product, and coding experts break down how COVID-19 terms have been developed and explain how IMO can help providers by taking terminology concerns off of their plates.
IMO is committed to helping healthcare providers with workflow and cohort management needs related to the COVID-19 pandemic. That’s why we created IMO Precision COVID-19 Sets, available now to IMO customers, completely free of charge.
In medicine, value sets are key to identifying populations of interest. But without knowing who builds them – and how – it can be hard to trust their accuracy. Learn how IMO is taking on value sets – from scope definition, to architecture, to ongoing maintenance.
With the unprecedented global outbreak of COVID-19, the novel coronavirus, it’s crucial that we all do our part to help. At IMO, that means ensuring clinicians can easily identify and monitor COVID-19 patients using the most up-to-date terms for EHR documentation. IMO’s CEO Ann Barnes describes our new offerings, available free of charge on March 26.

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.
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.
