How IMO uses LOINC:
IMO® provides clinical interface terminology to ensure data fidelity across the health care information ecosystem. The terminology bridges the gap between clinical language and complex coding systems in point-of-care and backend systems.
- IMO delivers procedure terminology mapped to LOINC codes in addition to other administrative and reference terminologies (like SNOMED CT).
- IMO provides clinically-friendly terms that correspond to the meaning of the majority of lab LOINC codes which can be used to provide clinically-friendly “translation” of LOINC codes.
IMO’s clinical interface terms support data exchange and semantic interoperability for clinical decision support, continuity of care, population health, analytics as well as public health, quality measure, and meaningful use reporting.
