Healthline to Unveil Healthcare “Big Data” Solutions at HIMSS 2014

Demonstrations of the Company’s Full Range of Health Information, Technology and Consumer Engagement Solutions to Occur in its Exhibit throughout the Conference

February 20, 2014—San Francisco, CA and Orlando, FL—Healthline announces new Data Solutions for healthcare payors, providers, and other users of “big data” at the annual Health Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) 2014 Conference and Exposition. This year’s conference will be held at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida February 23 – 27, 2014. Healthline can be found at booth 7273 in Hall E.

Core to Healthline’s new Data Solutions offering is its Cohort Creation EngineSM, which enables the use of large sets of disparate data (both structured and unstructured) in a range of analytics applications. Healthline’s proprietary Semantic Taxonomy Platform powers the Cohort Creation Engine™ and the company’s other HIT solutions for the enterprise.

“Our curated taxonomy powers health information and technology solutions for some of the world’s largest healthcare organizations, delivering them better consumer engagement, improved health outcomes, and lower costs,” said Niraj Katwala, Chief Technology Officer at Healthline. “The demand for solutions that enable analysis of massive sets of disparate data is growing and we have figured out how to solve it.”

The Cohort Creation EngineSM, which can be deployed behind a firewall for safety and security,

leverages a range of Healthline core technologies, including:

  • Medically-Guided Search
  • Concept Indexing and Categorization
  • Natural Language Processing
  • Taxonomic Health Data Mapping
  • Analytics Engine API

Together, these technologies deliver a scalable solution that enables the clean delivery of massive data sets to reporting infrastructure, analytics engines, and data dashboards. Because this abstraction happens between the data source and the application, any new data source (e.g., EMR, etc.) can be added without having to reprogram reports.

“Healthline’s Cohort Creation Engine aggregates data from disparate systems—clinical, administrative, claims, etc.—in various formats, including structured and unstructured data; categorizes and enriches it using Healthline’s unique taxonomy; and indexes it for precise, fast, and easy search and discovery,” said Murray Brozinsky, Chief Strategy Officer at Healthline. “The resulting cohorts provide rich data sets that can be used to power myriad applications, including patient engagement, clinical decision support, population health management, predictive modeling, and other high-value applications, as well as ad hoc queries.”

Healthline will be demonstrating its full range of consumer engagement and health information and technology solutions at the HIMSS Conference, including its new Data Solutions. It is also unveiling a new company identity and corporate website at corp.healthline.com.

“We’ve proven the complex job of indexing vast quantities of unstructured content and delivering it contextually at the right time, to the right place, and in the right amount to physicians, patients, plan members and consumers,” said Dean Stephens, CEO and co-founder of Healthline. “The time has arrived to apply our dozen years of software development to conquering the task of uncovering insights from the growing mass of unstructured physician notes in EMRs and other emerging data and content storage vehicles.”
