Are you someone who would be interested in why “adverse effect” and “adverse reaction” are considered synonymous, but “side effect” is not? 
Students who love language, words, puzzles, and medical terminology needed!
NO medical education or medical terminology experience required.

Looking to make a difference in healthcare? Intelligent Medical Objects (IMO) is changing the future of healthcare in ways you may never have considered. Become a part of the team behind medical terminology solutions that support over 80% of US clinicians.

Entering patient information into medical record systems without IMO is a lot like trying to search/utilize the internet without any natural language processing. Our software solutions allow physicians to focus on CARE not on CODES, providing not only google-esque searching but also specialized “helper” drop-downs to ensure that the medical record captures the physicians’ intent, and that the patient information translates properly into billing and other code systems to facilitate payment and treatment.

IMO is rapidly expanding its terminology software into all segments of the healthcare industry. At IMO, a core team of clinicians, software developers and engineers combines computer science and medical expertise to help patients and healthcare professionals access high quality health information quickly and easily to improve total patient health. IMO is a privately held multi-million dollar corporation enjoying explosive growth.
