Carmel, IN. (May 22, 2012) – Clinical Architecture today acknowledges the important step forward that HDD Access represents and announces Symedical Server’s ability to provide advanced terminology management of the new open source content. 3M, the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) and the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) are to be commended for making such a rich source of content available to the market.

While healthcare providers, payors and system vendors weigh what HDD Access means for their businesses, one thing is clear. Front end tooling and run-time services are necessary to effectively sub-set, manage, search, localize, map and leverage this large data set as it rolls out over time. Symedical Server is compatible with the terminology available through HDD Access and provides the robust tools the market needs to properly utilize this new open source content.

“Taking full advantage of something as comprehensive as the HDD Access content will require not only an understanding of how it works, but also tooling that is both sophisticated and intuitive” said Charlie Harp, CEO of Clinical Architecture. “Our relationship with 3M has given us sufficient quality time with the HDD to understand how it works and how it can be leveraged. Our terminology platform, Symedical Server, will provide features that not only allow our clients to access the HDD Access content but leverage it in new and exciting ways.”

Symedical Server provides a comprehensive solution for terminology management, consumption, distribution, search, navigation and interoperability. It supports industry standard, commercial third party and locally created terminologies and their relationships; and has been designed to provide a flexible, out of the box solution for all terminology use cases.
