Data is everywhere, but in the healthcare industry it is fast becoming the largest producer. Combine that with the many other initiatives in health information technology going on – electronic health records, ICD-10 coding classification transition, Affordable Health Care, Meaningful Use – they need whatever help they can find.

By eliminating the complexity of a solutions-based approach, customers have greater findability and better results. It is so very important to choose a product that makes your content findable – easily and thoroughly. Access Innovations is one of a very small number of companies able to help its clients generate ANSI/ISO/W3C-compliant taxonomies and associated rule bases for machine-assisted indexing.
