Apixio has announced that it has provided funds for research to the Center for Biomedical Informatics Research (BMIR) at Stanford University for developing data-driven methods to improve health care outcomes. Funds will support research to investigate and understand the impact of utilizing large-scale clinical data in enhancing quality and improving health care enterprise. BusinessWire brought this news to our attention in their article, “Stanford University and Apixio Interpret Big Data for Healthcare.”

We are constantly talking about the growing volume of data. That growth has never been more evident than in the healthcare setting. However, the growing volume of medical data, both in structured and unstructured formats, presents unique opportunities and challenges. Apixio’s core technology, Medical Information Navigation Engine (MINE), provides intelligent medical search and reconciliation, enabling researchers to focus on discovering hidden associations in both structured and unstructured clinical data.
