Every year on October 1st, CMS (the Centers for Medicaid and Medicare Services) introduces several updates to the ICD-10 code set. IMO (Intelligent Medical Objects) automatically adds all of the new or updated ICD codes to their terminology, so you will be able to search for those new values on October 1st. But because CMS […]
AngleSearch now works with EMR 9.8/CPS 12.0 on up through Athena v19. Please contact AngleMD if upgrading directly from EMR 9.8 or CPS 12.0, as the MEL required to open AngleSearch for EMR 9.10+ or CPS 12.2+ is slightly different than that used in EMR 9.8 or CPS 12.0.
AngleSearch now (optionally) supports quick-text macros in the problem assessment fields. Please let me know if you would like this feature activated for your practice. (It isn’t activated by default, because it could, theoretically, consume more memory for practices that leverage huge numbers of quick-text macros. Therefore, the feature is opt-in to keep memory demands […]
With the rapid spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) in the U.S., many providers have had a difficult time finding the best terms to represent their patient’s COVID-19 related conditions. In an effort to help, AngleSearch has temporarily added a new “COVID-19” search button at the top of the Find Problem dialog. Clicking this button […]
It has long been possible to launch AngleSearch using a MEL command that automatically triggers a specific search. For example, you can create a MEL command that launches AngleSearch so that “asthma” is automatically searched for. In that case, the “Find Problem” dialog will appear with “asthma” in the search field, saving the provider a […]
One of the great value propositions of using AngleSearch is the deep integration with IMO’s Problem IT terminology, which gives highly accurate and useful ICD-9 and ICD-10 mappings to the problem descriptions searched for by providers. There have been rare cases where a practice needs a different ICD code for a problem, however. Historically, we […]
AngleSearch has always allowed each practice to display the last edit date or the last assess date for each problem (your choice), but you can now opt to show the stop date too. When this feature is activated, any problem that has a stop date will display that date directly below the problem description, alongside […]
The whole point of AngleSearch is to make it easy for providers to find the best problem ICD-10 code for the patient without knowing how to be a professional coder. In practices that see pediatrics and adults, it can sometimes be difficult to know when special ICD-10 codes are required for children. To help with […]
If your providers do not have a need to see the SNOMED-CT codes or the ICD-9 codes in the Find Problem dialog, those values can be toggled off so they no longer appear (either one, or both). Please just drop us a note if you would like to turn off the display of either code.
AngleSearch users appreciate the clinician-friendly problem descriptions provided by the IMO terminology set we integrate with. While perfect for the EMR, those IMO problem descriptions do not flow over to the practice management system in some practices. Often, only the formal ICD-10 descriptions are used on the practice management side. One practice has requested that […]
