Intelligent Medical Objects


Booth: 3517

Melinda Watman, VP of Strategic Relationships

Intelligent Medical Objects (IMO®) develops and licenses medical vocabularies that allow clinicians to capture clinical intent when documenting in EHR systems while at the same time attaching the guaranteed billing codes. IMO has market-leading clinical interface terminology products that cross link standardized vocabularies such as SNOMED CT®, ICD-9, CPT®, MeSH, UMLS, and now even ICD-10-CM, that are necessary for healthcare organizations to connect providers with patient records, administrative information, academic references, decision support content and consumer information. This allows healthcare professionals to focus on patient care rather than administrative details. Products include Problem (IT), a vocabulary database allowing clinicians to enter diagnoses into clinical systems using common, familiar and desired terms; Procedure (IT), a powerful master index used to enter procedure terms quickly and easily for charge capture; Medical Necessity, which provides organizations with the tools they need to integrate reimbursement checking and iHealthSearch™, an intelligent search portal for content.

Intelligent Medical Objects Says: IMO’s suite of vocabulary products can go a long way to ease the transition to ICD-10-CM, which you can learn about along with our groundbreaking new Procedure IT solution at our booth (3517). While there, take “The IMO Challenge” to see if you have what it takes to stump our system – if you enter a key vocabulary term that’s not included in our system you’ll receive a gift and your term may be added to our extensive vocabulary database.
