Today, Intel released a whitepaper profiling Apixio’s innovative application of big data analytics to the healthcare space, through its risk adjustment application HCC Profiler.
The whitepaper describes how Scripps Health used HCC Profiler to review 21,000 Medicare Advantage charts with increased accuracy and productivity. As Linda Pantovic, Scripp’s Director of Compliance and Performance Improvement said,
“The increased capability Apixio provides is invaluable. It supplies our coders with an improved ability to review the materials. It improves our auditing bandwith. Ultimately, it gives us an enhanced opportunity to save money.”
The piece also describes how Apixio uses Cloudera’s Hadoop User Experience and Intel’s Xeon processors to execute the mapping, ingest, and ETL functions of its cognitive computing platform and increase the horsepower and capacity of its work.
