Health language solutions to drive semantic normalization for california integrated data interchange
The Health division of Wolters Kluwer, a leading global provider of information and point of care solutions for the healthcare industry, announced today a partnership with HealthCore to provide data normalization services to the California Integrated Data Exchange (Cal INDEX). Deployment of the Health Language Enterprise Terminology Management Platform will ensure the integrity and semantic interoperability of data flowing through the statewide Health Information Exchange (HIE).
Cal INDEX is an independent nonprofit organization founded through $80 million in seed funding from Blue Shield of California and Anthem Blue Cross to initially integrate approximately 30 large provider organizations across the state, encompassing approximately 9 million patient records from the health plans’ combined members. Open to any health data contributor, Cal INDEX will provide the underlying data and technology platform to improve quality of care by providing clinicians with a unified statewide source of integrated patient information, as well as improve efficiency and reduce the cost of healthcare.
The Health Language solution will be used in tandem with HealthCore’s first-of-a-kind integrated database to address the complexities and nuances of the data flowing through Cal INDEX.
