HealthMash has released an upgrade to their search feature for the iPhone and Android based upon customers’ feedback. Part of the upgrade includes better visual appearance and some tweaking of the spelling correction feature.

This information was found on Benzinga in their article, “HealthMash Health Search iPhone and Android Update.” HealthMash uses a semantic search technology that strives to make health information findable.

Semantic technology and the ever famous spelling correction feature combined can be a great combination or one scary perfect storm when it comes to medical terminology. It has never been more important to be sure that tags are applied correctly with their taxonomy. Many widely used tagging systems lack the user friendly interface and may not implement a rigorous ANSI compliant coding subsystem. Access Innovations’ solutions are ANSI compliant and implement state-of-the-art technology to speed tagging and reduce errors.
