, the premier provider of software solutions for , will embed Health Language technology from Wolters Kluwer Health into Jiva™, ZeOmega's web-based integrated care management platform, advancing productivity and efficiency for payers and care-delivery organizations.

This enhanced predictive search functionality enables utilization, care and disease managers to easily identify and select codes that most accurately reflect medical services provided. Traditional approaches often require these professionals to exit their current workflow, and conduct a laborious search to locate diagnosis and procedural codes from a separate screen.

Jiva will now allow a nurse to enter “COPD” into the Jiva code search field, for instance, and will instantly return all relevant ICD-9 and ICD-10 codes. Users can then select the correct codes through a user-friendly interface from the same screen.

“Our clients rely on us to continually develop Jiva to help improve their overall workflow and efficiencies,” says Sam Rangaswamy, founder and CEO for ZeOmega. “Adding the Health Language engine as a standard to Jiva streamlines steps to improve workflow and provides capabilities that simply aren’t available through anyone else in the industry. We are delighted to be able to deliver functionality that our customers tell us will make their jobs easier.”

Health Language solutions help healthcare providers and vendors manage updates, mapping, distribution and access to clinical vocabularies and administrative codes. The Language Engine automates the incorporation of standard medical terminology and coding into healthcare software applications.

“Streamlining code identification and selection does more than increase productivity. By ensuring an accurate representation of care provided, it also improves care coordination and safety,” says Brian McDonald, executive vice president, Health Language, Wolters Kluwer Health, Clinical Solutions. “We are pleased to partner with ZeOmega to help its clients optimize workflows and achieve greater efficiencies and improved outcomes.”

“With Health Language, Wolters Kluwer Healthoffers a sophisticated product that’s user-friendly and integrates seamlessly with Jiva,” says Arie van den Akker, vice president of business development for ZeOmega. “We share the same goal of giving our best to our customers, which makes them a great partner.”
