Clinical Architecture has been selected by SPH Analytics (SPHA) for its next-generation healthcare analytics platform. EIN News brought this news to us in their article, “SPH Analytics Selects Clinical Architecture’s Semantic Normalization and Natural Language Processing Technologies to Provide Next Generation Solutions.”

Clinical Architecture’s Symedical® platform addresses healthcare interoperability challenges specifically related to the management of clinical and administrative terminologies. The focus on semantic data normalization enhances the clinical information gathered from various sources.

The kind of data that next generation analytics require has to be assembled from hundreds of electronic medical record systems, electronic health record systems, claims processing services, and custom databases. Because of this, it is often inconsistent.

Of course we already know that ontologies and other controlled vocabularies help ensure consistency and standardization. Access Innovations is one of a very small number of companies able to help its clients generate ANSI/ISO/W3C-compliant taxonomies to make their information findable.
