Chicago, Illinois, USA - October 18, 2013 - Pervasive Health, Inc. today announced it has signed a partnership agreement with BiTAC, a leading clinical terminology company. This partnership establishes BiTAC as part of a growing community of insight authors for Pervasive Health’s Apervita platform. BiTAC provides clinical terminology mapping services to health enterprises that wish to transform proprietary datasets into commonly understood clinical concepts. With this agreement, BiTAC can now transform proprietary data, and connect it to health insights provided by Apervita’s community of authors. These health insights can then be easily shared between colleagues and affiliate organizations as standard computable measures, algorithms, nomograms, pathways, guidelines, and protocols on the Apervita platform.
Commenting on the partnership, Rick Halton, Chief Marketing Officer,
said, “Healthcare today is facing the triple challenges of excelling in quality, within an environment of expanding regulatory requirements, while minimizing costs. The key to achieving these aims is capturing the value of information locked into health data silos. The average health enterprise can have more than 30 silos which frequently need to be shared. Our partnership with BiTAC addresses all these needs, by unifying health data silos, converting them into portable health insights, and allowing health enterprises, health professionals, health payers, and pharmaceutical companies to share them.
"Our partnership with Pervasive Health is an affordable and flexible way to unify health data into insights, using the Apervita platform said Toni Mas Mota, Chief Executive Officer of BiTAC. “With years of mapping experience with the likes of SNOMED-CT, LOINC, ICD-10, and having registered more than 2,000 new standard clinical terms, BiTAC is a wonderful complement to Pervasive Health’s platform
