Medefis5 Telemetry Medical Parsing Updates

What’s new?

VMS Sync has reprioritized which Medefis5 fields are checked for medType and medSpecialty Keywords. vmsMedSpecialties and vmsMedType are now ranked above Title.

Medical parsing logic has also been updated for all VMS Positions that support medical parsing. Keywords are used to derive Medical Type and Specialty values from VMS Position details. Keyword updates include:

Keyword Specialty
Medical Surgical Telemetry

MedSurg / Telemetry

Med Surg Telemetry

M/S Tele

Med Surg/Telemetry


Priority is how Sync decides which Medical Type and Specialty values to assign to a VMS Position. Priority updates include:

Specialty Description


Ranked above Medical/Surgical/Telemetry

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 link has been intentionally created by a user.

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.
