Assemble & manage more complete & accurate patient information

Overcome interoperability challenges, clinical presentation requirements, and resolve fractured, non-standard data issues.

Normalize data across disparate systems

Normalize, standardize, and map to recognized standards, such as United States Core Data for Interoperability (USCDI).

Create a single source of truth

Semantic provides the single source of truth for standard (and local) content to reference for normalization.

Choose a deployment path that’s best for your environment

Easily integrate Semantic into your existing applications or use it as a stand-alone terminology management solution.

Payers and health plans

Healthcare organizations are required to submit claims data in a standard code system format, typically CPT for procedures. However, some organizations develop code using proprietary or custom codes as allowed by the electronic medical record. To ensure codes are standardized to CPT for submission, the local codes are mapped to the CPT codes in Semantic. Advanced algorithmic mapping provides the most likely match (with scoring) based on organizational criteria.

Health Information Exchanges

Semantic has assisted multiple HIEs in creating query-based sensitive code lists that include HIV, STDs, genetic testing, behavioral health, and sexual health. The subsets can be updated quickly as standard content is updated. The subsets can be referenced in clinical applications to apply specific “break the glass” or similar rules.

Cancer research organizations

Cancer research organizations use extensions, mapping, and subsets to properly identify and categorize cancer types, staging, and medications. The research organization receives data from disparate systems which is first normalized. If the codes are local, the CRO applies mapping to standards (auto-mapping). They have also created extensions with specific properties for CRO identification and analytics purposes.

Online pharmacies

Online pharmacies can use subsets to group medications, allergies, and over-the-counter (OTC) drugs. In addition, they may use Semantic to create specific subsets for use in dropdowns for patient-facing pharmacy solutions. Creating and updating subsets is quick and easy using the property expression in the query.

Power person-to-person interoperability while supporting freedom of expression that is unconstrained by data location or format

Data integrity

Normalize, standardize, and map to recognized USCDI standards. 

Local/custom codes 

Use the Algorithmic Mapping feature to map local codes to a recognized standard.

Data migration 

Ensure older versions of standard coding are normalized to the latest version. Easily map older ICD-9 codes to ICD-10, and to ICD-11 when you’re ready.

Sensitive data filtering

Meet 42 CFR Part 2 requirements and/or region-, state-, or organizational-specific filtering needs.


An intuitive user interface supports data stewardship workflows.
