WASHINGTON, February 7, 2020 — Medicomp’s clinical knowledge base team is constantly monitoring new and existing clinical diagnoses, guidelines and terminology to ensure our systems and databases are up to date. With the recent outbreak of the coronavirus, Medicomp has added new clinical content aimed at supporting the accurate diagnosis and documentation of suspected cases in the United States and globally.

Medicomp’s solutions have been updated to include additional terms and mappings to support the accurate documentation, reporting and treatment of the new 2019-nCoV coronavirus strain. Medicomp has also updated its clinical AI engine to support full clinical workups for suspected cases and to help providers quickly find virus-related data within their EHRs, such as identifying patients who recently traveled to affected areas. All updates are available to MEDCIN and Quippe customers.

Given the potential pandemic conditions, Medicomp believes it’s imperative that providers have point-of-care access to information that supports the accurate diagnosis and treatment of the coronavirus.

“Medicomp is committed to providing its customers and partners with timely updates that help clinician end users quickly identify and treat affected patients. We will continue to update our content and knowledge base should standardized codes be modified to address the coronavirus or future health conditions that threaten the public’s well-being.”, said Jay Anders, MD, Chief Medical Officer of Medicomp.
