MedAptus’ Professional Charge Capture is used by provider organizations ranging from single-specialty practices to large academic medical centers. Customers rely on MedAptus to make the charge capture and management process simple, effective and timely for physician end-users and administrative support staff. The improved ICD-10 clinical keyword search in MedAptus via IMO means that providers will have access to a best-in-breed clinical terminology solution.
The IMO search is one of several usability enhancements that MedAptus is making to ease physician adoption of ICD-10 within Professional Charge Capture. "Customer feedback indicates that our multi-pronged approach to diagnosis code selection will provide physicians with the necessary tools for managing patient workloads and care demands while adjusting to the new coding requirements," added Dr. Secan.
IMO functionality is available as an add-on module for ICD-9 searching in the MedAptus software now. All other product updates related to the ICD-10 code set will be available later this year.
