Healthcare terminology provides a standardized “language of medicine” that allows healthcare providers and HIM professionals the ability to get their daily work done. The July Journal of AHIMA features an article discussing the important role healthcare terminology plays in information standardization.

In this audio feature, the co-authors of that article, June Bronnert, director of terminology coding at Intelligent Medical Objects, and Chip Masarie, IMO’s chief terminologist, discuss in layman’s terms just what medical terminology is, why it interests them, and how HIM professionals use terminology on a day-by-day basis.
