New Hope, PA (PRWEB) November 04, 2011
iSEEK Enterprise, the world leader in the development of linguistic software solutions, is pleased to announce its membership in Health Level Seven International, or HL7, the global authority on standards for interoperability of health information technology.
An operating unit of Vantage Labs, iSEEK™ uses advanced linguistics, conceptual and artificial intelligence technology to make a search more relevant, productive and intelligent. With applications in the medical, education, corporate and government fields, iSEEK empowers individuals and organizations to find and use information in order to make informed decisions. With membership in HL7, iSEEK is now able to work with healthcare institutions that require compliance with the organization’s exhaustive standards.
“We are delighted to be joining with the HL7 organization and its members,” said Paul Edelblut, Vice President of iSEEK. “The ability to lend our linguistic expertise and technologies to even more groups that could benefit from our proficiency in data discovery is very important to our company.”
HL7 is a standards-developing organization dedicated to providing a comprehensive framework and related standards for the exchange, integration, sharing and retrieval of electronic health information. Its more than 2,300 members include approximately 500 corporate members who represent more than 90 percent of the information systems vendors serving healthcare.
“We believe in and support HL7’s vision of enabling interoperability of healthcare information,” continued Edelblut. “By working with several of the top medical systems in the U.S., we have seen first-hand that the ability to seamlessly exchange and then use information is an essential attribute in every discipline, but even more so in healthcare enterprises and communities. Our hope is that by leveraging iSEEK and HL7standards, physicians and researchers who need access to information will be able to make a meaningful change in someone’s life.”
One of iSEEK’s applications,iSEEK™ Medical, addresses the challenge of medical community members who produce and require daily access to vast quantities of data. It combines a powerful cataloging engine and an intuitive presentation of search results to provide context, and informational understanding.
iSEEK Medical is currently used by The Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania and by the University of Michigan to help users discover and interact with information that was previously hard to find. With the powerful concept engines in iSEEK, students, faculty, researchers and clinicians of all levels now have access to a virtual reference library, bringing evidence-based medical information to the point of care and beyond.
The application was also honored with the prestigious Don Walker Award for "exceptional contribution to improving health outcomes through innovation in health informatics" at the 2010 Health Informatics Conference.
