Making the most efficient use of clinical data

The Pediatric Clinic LLC is a physician-owned medical clinic serving infants, children and adolescents in east central Alabama and western Georgia. It is always in search of flexible, datadriven solutions to enable the best possible patient care, meet regulatory requirements and improve efficiencies. Using the Professional EHR platform as its core solution, it has incorporated terminology solutions from IMO for cleaner, more accurate and relevant data.

Better data enables better clinical and operational decisions

The practice uses data from Professional EHR reports to make better clinical and operational decisions. For example, to improve vaccination compliance the clinic runs a report to identify 11-year-old patients that haven’t gotten their tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis (Tdap) vaccine, which is required to enter sixth grade.

”“We were able to get the reports done as needed for Meaningful Use, and it was a lot easier after we cleaned up the data using IMO CUYD. It definitely helps us with all of our regulatory requirements.”

Capturing the correct codes with clinician-friendly terms

Data plays a central role in making patient-centered decisions and demonstrating performance for value-based programs, such as MACRA and MIPS. The Pediatric Clinic places a priority on capturing accurate data for more complete clinical records and optimal reimbursement.

Sorting the problem list by clinical relevance

Typical problem lists are organized alphabetically, making it difficult for clinicians to get a quick clinical snapshot of the patient. IMO Clinical Categories creates a customized problem list, based on the priorities of users, to view them in the most useful and efficient way.

With one click, clinicians can sort the problem list by clinical relevance, as well as group duplicate diagnoses in the same category. This capability makes it easier to get a feel for the patient's conditions and clean up charts by merging those duplicates.

Key Outcomes

  • Clinicians can search for terms the way they speak and know it is mapped to the correct codes
  • Accurate codes enable better reporting for value-based initiatives, such as MACRA and MIPS
  • Easier search options reduce frustration for clinicians, while cleaner data saves time for billers and coders
