Medefis5 Medical Parsing Updates

What’s new?

VMS Sync now checks for Keywords in the following Medefis5 VMS fields:

Change Medefis5 VMS Field
Priority Specialties is now ranked above Type

Medical parsing logic has been updated for all VMS Positions that support medical parsing. Priority is how VMS Sync decides which Medical Type and Specialty values to assign to a VMS Position. Changes include:

Specialty Description


Ranked above Special Care Unit
Computed Tomograph Ranked above  Magnetic Resonance Imaging

Keywords are used to derive Medical Type and Specialty values from VMS Position details. The following keywords have changed:

Keyword Specialty
CT/Rad Tech Computed Tomography

Why does it matter?

VMS-specific medical parsing logic is how Sync determines which fields contain the most Keywords and in which order these fields should be parsed. This lets Sync accurately assign a Medical Type and Specialty value to a Position.

VMS Sync assigns a Medical Type and Specialty value to all Healthcare Positions to better categorize the type of work a vendor is requesting.

Medical Type and Specialty values are displayed on the Skill Mapping Dashboard for users to manually associate with ATS field values. This enables users to enforce a specialization-specific Position categorization workflow and ensures unmapped positions aren’t delivered to the ATS until a user has intentionally created a link.

How do I enable this?

Generally Available: No permission changes are required for this update. Healthcare users are encouraged to regularly review their Skill Mapping Dashboard and ensure their links are up-to-date.
