Carmel, IN (August 18, 2015) – Clinical Architecture, the leading innovator in healthcare terminology management technology, announced today the launch of the Clinical Architecture Content Cloud, a new healthcare content update service designed to deliver updated healthcare terminologies in a standard and consistent format.
The Clinical Architecture Content Cloud provides a single source for healthcare standards like ICD-9, ICD-10, LOINC, RxNorm, SNOMED-CT, HL7 and many other relevant clinical and administrative terminologies. These required content assets are delivered in a highly consumable and consistent format, reducing the need for clients to locate and monitor an ever expanding list of content sources. Through delivery of a controlled, consistent format clients can confidently apply terminology updates supplied by the Clinical Architecture Content Cloud knowing they are insulated from incompatible formatting changes that periodically occur at the source.
The volume, complexity and continuous change of terminologies used in today’s healthcare environment can be overwhelming. The Clinical Architecture team brings extensive healthcare content experience and a deep understanding of healthcare terminologies, including how best to acquire, update, distribute and utilize them. The Clinical Architecture Content Cloud enables clients to leverage this knowledge to quickly and easily make use of these terminologies and keep their systems up-to-date. In addition to the full content sets published by the source, a number of special purpose subsets are maintained by Clinical Architecture based on their industry knowledge and client requests. This one-stop-shop for healthcare terminology allows clients to reduce costs and save time by eliminating the need for critical IT resources to invest the time needed to effectively understand the nuances of each terminology.
“Our focus has always been on improving the quality and usability of clinical information. A fundamental step in the process of governing data is having up-to-date terminology assets available when you need them,” said Charlie Harp, Clinical Architecture’s Chief Executive Officer. “The Clinical Architecture Content Cloud is a centralized way to efficiently obtain and update terminologies so our clients are able to maintain compliance and leverage clinical information in a much more productive way.”
The Clinical Architecture Content Cloud alleviates the burden of obtaining content and mitigates the risks associated with the use of outdated content. As a single source for standard terminologies, meaningful use value sets, reference maps and useful subsets, the Clinical Architecture Content Cloud is the industry’s most complete source for healthcare terminologies. Using the Clinical Architecture Content Cloud is easy; simply subscribe to content, receive standardized files, and load to selected applications.
