Consensus Cloud Solutions (@ConsensusCS), a soon to be standalone company spinning off from J2 Global, Inc., will reveal how they plan to meet every industry stakeholder along their interoperability journey and deliver better patient care by unveiling two new additions to their product suite – Consensus Clarity and Consensus Harmony. The Consensus Clarity solution integrates NLP and AI to help healthcare organizations move unstructured EMR data and clinical content to structured, analytics-ready data. Consensus Harmony provides healthcare organizations with a universal API that allows for the secure sharing of structured data with other healthcare systems for better care coordination. Details on both new solutions will be showcased at the Consensus Cloud Solutions booth 1518 as well as during a demonstration titled “AI Enabled Workflow Transformation” taking place at the Interoperability Showcase booth C200-47. During the demonstration clients will follow Dr. Martin, a primary care physician with a medium-sized community practice, as she converts unstructured documents into C-CDAs that can be automated by her EHR – improving her workflow while still maintaining the original file that can be faxed to her local community. This demonstration will take place at Caesars Forum Conference Center, booth C200-47 at 15 minutes past the hour during all exhibit hours: Tuesday through Thursday, 9:30 AM – 4:00 PM.
