No matter whether you are a hospital, EHR vendor or a payer – the future lies in the integration of healthcare data. Enterprise terminology management is critical for interoperability, analytics, data warehousing, accountable care-related projects as well as population health.
Bringing data together from disparate sources – will inevitably create terminology challenges.
To be able to run efficient analytics, population health and have interoperability – you will need clean and standardized data to provide better care for the patients.
As we integrate more and more IT systems in our healthcare network, there is a demand for a central terminology management. Not only to normalize terminology, but also to ensure all systems are running on the same version of the content at the same time.
CareCom A/S is a Danish software company based in Copenhagen, Denmark. The company was founded in 1999 by CEO Jacob Boye Hansen and is today a leading global vendor of terminology server solutions within the healthcare sector.
Our product HealthTerm helps governments, hospitals and healthcare systems with normalization of clinical codes, mapping local laboratory codes to standards, supplying content for EHR systems, and we are experiencing an increasing demand for enterprise terminology management. Terminology for your entire enterprise – not only your EHR system or data warehouse. Data is becoming more and more important and critical in healthcare today – having a strong terminology foundation is becoming equally as critical.
HealthTerm is used within some of the world’s largest projects within EHR/HIE implementations such as Orion Health and was recently chosen to standardize all the vast amounts of data going into IBM Watson Health globally.
