Health Language, Inc. to Map Patient Data within the Microsoft Amalga Enterprise Health Intelligence Platform to Standard

Integration of HLI’s Language Engine accelerates information exchange and data analysis for Microsoft Amalga users

DENVER--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Health Language, Inc. (HLI), the global leader in medical terminology management, today announced that Microsoft has selected its Language Engine (LE) to automate the mapping of patient data collected within Microsoft Amalga, an enterprise health intelligence platform, to standard medical terminologies. The integration of LE enables caregivers using Amalga to more rapidly access and analyze the patient data they need to perform their jobs.

“By applying the Language Engine to the Microsoft Amalga platform, we aim to further enhance the experience of our end users in accessing and analyzing patient data,” said Bryan Dove, software architect, Microsoft Health Solutions Group. “We were looking for a long-term solution and have been impressed with the capabilities of the HLI Language Engine as it applies to standardizing disparate, aggregate data.”

Microsoft selected HLI because of its core competency in terminology asset management and versioning capabilities. Incorporating LE into the Amalga platform allows Microsoft to:

  • Create and manage information from data silos, including streamlining the conversion from ICD-9 to ICD-10 assisted by HLI’s enhanced ICD-10 content;
  • Simplify code search capabilities; and,
  • Identify list standards in order to improve population identification analytics.

With the Language Engine in place, Microsoft Amalga users will be able to access standardized data more efficiently from applications, thereby enhancing the exchange of clinical and financial information across networks.

“We are pleased about the opportunity to engage with the technology experts at Microsoft, as we work to bolster data exchange tools that ultimately help to improve patient care,” said George Schwend, CEO and president of HLI. “The Amalga platform is used by HIE systems across the country, and we look forward to enhancing transparency into critical patient information for more comprehensive clinical research and improved evidence-based care.”
