Kluwer Health announced today that CORHIO
has deployed Health Language Interoperability and Data Normalization
Solutions to drive more meaningful insights into big data for more
advanced analytics and reporting. The collaboration with Wolters Kluwer
Health empowers CORHIO participants with the clinical intelligence
needed to inform population health initiatives around such high-profile
disease states as diabetes and congestive heart failure, as well as
other high-value public health indicators.
One of the largest health information exchange (HIE) networks in the
U.S., CORHIO is using Health Language solutions to normalize substantial
amounts of disparate data to a single source of truth. For example, the
organization was initially receiving more than 30 different
representations of Hemoglobin A1C data from the 65 hospitals and 10 labs
submitting patient information. Today, CORHIO is mapping roughly 80
percent of its general lab compendia to LOINC—the industry-accepted
standard for information sharing—to provide clean data to power clinical
dashboards, drive care and disease management programs and ultimately,
“CORHIO has entered the second evolution of its interoperability journey
as we advance our infrastructures to generate more meaningful,
actionable information,” said Morgan Honea, CEO of CORHIO. “Our
partnership with Wolters Kluwer enables us to cross the chasm from
information to knowledge and create strong visualizations that deliver
value for our members.”
Health Language data quality solutions promote interoperability and turn
disparate data into actionable insights, helping healthcare
organizations maximize reimbursement, comply with regulatory
requirements, improve operational efficiencies and enhance patient care.
By standardizing and normalizing clinical, claims and administrative
data, Health Language solutions enhance investments made in data
warehouses, analytics software and population health management.
Additionally, the platform helps healthcare organizations manage data
governance and centralize healthcare terminologies such as standard code
sets used for clinical, billing and administrative documentation and
“HIEs are increasingly charged with helping members realize the promise
of big data through smarter analytics that drive successful population
health programs,” said Dan Buell, General Manager of Health Language at
Wolters Kluwer Clinical Software Solutions. “We are excited to work with
CORHIO to lay the foundation for the next-generation of HIE.”
