November 19, 2010 – Halfpenny Technologies, Inc. has named Gai Elhanan, M.D., M.A., as the company’s chief medical information officer (CMIO). In his new role, Dr. Elhanan will be responsible for directing the development of Halfpenny’s clinical and analytical technology solutions.

BusinessWire tells us in their article, “Halfpenny Technologies Appoints Chief Medical Information Officer”,  about Dr. Elhanan’s background in informatics and semantic networks with medical and healthcare ontologies. This should serve to deliver secure, reliable and cost-effective solutions for Halfpenny.

Solid ontology development is not an easy task. It takes knowledge, discipline and standards. Building ontologies is a worthwhile skill, one that Access Innovations has mastered.
