Intelligent Medical Objects Adds ICD-10-WHO and ICD-10-CA Extensions to Their Clinical Interface Terminology Products

NORTHBROOK, Ill., March 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Intelligent Medical Objects (IMO(R)) announces the general availability of ICD-10-WHO(1) and ICD-10-CA(2) extensions to their market-leading line of Clinical Interface Terminology products including IMO's Problem (IT). IMO Problem (IT) is a clinical diagnosis and problem terminology that contains over 170,000 user-friendly terms for clinicians, coders, and patients and is used within Electronic Health Record (EHR) systems to document diagnoses, problems, and medical histories.

The International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems, 10th Revision (ICD-10, called ICD-10-WHO here) is maintained by the World Health Organization (WHO) for morbidity and mortality reporting in many countries. This is the coding classification on which other countries are building their own modifications, such as ICD-10-CA in Canada or ICD-10-CM in the United States. ICD-10-CA is developed and is maintained by the Canadian Institute for Health Information (CIHI) for morbidity and mortality reporting. The extensions to ICD-10-WHO and ICD-10-CA from IMO's user-friendly clinical interface terminology provide a seamless solution for EHRs that require ICD-10-WHO or ICD-10-CA classifications. The maintenance of these classifications in EHR systems is managed by IMO each time ICD-10 is in turn updated by the WHO and CIHI respectively.

Dr. Amy Y. Wang, IMO Acting Chief Medical Officer, adds, "Integrating ICD-10-WHO and ICD-10-CA into our product suite represents an important step towards meeting the clinical terminology and administrative needs of our international customers. This has laid the foundation and is part of IMO's overall strategy for incorporating ICD-10-CM into IMO Problem (IT) in order to assist our U.S. customers through the upcoming tra
