IOD Incorporated, a Green Bay, Wis.-based provider of integrated HIM solutions to hospitals, health systems, and physician practices, announced expanded capabilities to address health information management’s top three challenges of this decade: transitioning to ICD-10, implementing electronic records and recruiting highly qualified HIM staff. Through a series of strategic acquisitions, the company is now in lockstep with these customer requirements—and HIM departments nationwide.

IOD is the second largest release of information (ROI) company and supports a customer base that includes more than 1,800 of the country’s most recognized hospitals and clinics. The company is deepening their client partnerships through expanded technology and service offerings.

Through these acquisitions, IOD now offers a standardized workflow approach to a broad base of HIM services that include document capture and imaging software and services, coding, audit and clinical abstraction services, ICD-10 training and education, and more.

As a result of these efforts, as well as IOD’s steadfast attention to customer service and proven efficiency, Allina Hospitals & Clinics, a 10-year customer of IOD, recently extended its partnership with the company through 2015.
