Intelligent Medical Objects Releases IMO Technology Browser for Android and iPhone Users
Nov 21, 2012 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) --
Intelligent Medical Objects (IMO), a developer of medical terminology solutions for health records systems, announced the release of The IMO Terminology Browser for Android phones.
IMO reported that now clinicians and physicians with Android phones can search for medical billing codes with the same convenience and accuracy previously available only to iPhone users. The IMO Terminology Browser utilizes IMO's interface terminology products to map everyday language to complex medical codes. This allows physicians and clinicians to capture clinical intent and code diagnoses or procedures without changing the language they would normally use.
The IMO Terminology Browser provides a source of reference codes, linking to ICD-9-CM, ICD-10 (CM, CA, WHO), SNOMED CT, MeSH, UMLS, HCPCS, and ICD-9-CM Procedure Vol III; CPT will be added soon. Most other coding apps for mobile phones provide only ICD-9 or ICD-10 codes. All content is kept current though monthly releases.
The app is free to download with a 7-day free trial, and provides access to both IMO Problem (IT) and IMO Procedure (IT) databases.
"The mobile platform enables on-demand access to IMO services, and makes integration of new mHealth technologies seamless for our customers," said Frank Naeymi-Rad, CEO and Chairman. "Expanding our technology to the mobile platform is a major initiative for IMO in 2013," he said. "We are working with our vendor partners to extend their access to our coded vocabulary services thus transforming the workflow of the clinician."
"The IMO Android Terminology Browser is yet another example of our commitment to delivering products that fit seamlessly into physician workflow," said Fritz Hofheinz, MD, CMIO of IMO. "It's part of the reason why over 300,000 physicians use IMO's semantic web daily. The key strength of IMO is our accuracy in finding the correct codes."
IMO is a medical terminology solution for the development, management, and licensing of medical vocabularies and software applications at healthcare organizations worldwide.
