Health Language and BridgeFoward Team Up to Deliver Medical Vocabulary Solution

February 26, 2008 – Health Language Inc. (HLI) and BridgeForward Software, a leading supplier of interface engine technology for the U.S. and U.K. healthcare markets, announced their partnership to provide full data interoperability.

“We joined forces with BridgeForward to meet the market’s demand for a turn-key, cost-effective administrative and clinical content management solution based on interoperability standards accepted worldwide,” said George Schwend, CEO and president of Health Language Inc. “By leveraging BridgeForward’s technology for HL7 transactions and Health Language’s Language Engine (LE) solution to manage the content within those transactions, healthcare organizations no longer need to settle for less than full enterprise-wide interoperability or disparate systems and databases containing coded or unstructured datasets. For example, clinical notes can be converted into present-on-admission (POA) codes as well as billing codes that can be transmitted automatically to the appropriate payer and be used to support quality-assurance monitoring.”

The combined solution, available through an ongoing subscription or via a one-time data migration process, will consist of BridgeForward’s embedded integration layer, Edge4 and Health Languages LE, which supports patient care management and safety by effectively localizing, updating, disseminating and mapping more than 70 controlled, evolving, licensed healthcare terminologies, standards and other terminology-related content. Utilizing open architecture, BridgeForward’s Edge4 is reportedly easily embedded, small footprint, private-label integration layer that allows for fast application integration to virtually all applications and interface engines. Edge4 provides application suppliers with a standardized and supportable integration platform for every install.
