Scope e-Knowledge Center (Scope), a leading provider of knowledge services and a Quatrro Global Services company, is pleased to announce its participation at the forthcoming NFAIS 58th Annual Conference to be held in Philadelphia from February 21 - 23, 2016. Scope is proud to be one of the Silver sponsors of the event.

Scope's solutions help its customers build new digital content products or enhance existing ones by:

 Collecting content (web-scraping, web harvesting)
 Extracting relevant data (semantic term/concept/entity/relationships)
 Cleansing, Standardizing&Normalizing data
 Building knowledge repositories (Controlled vocabularies, taxonomies, thesauri or ontologies)
 Annotating pieces of content according to these knowledge repositories
 Improving Discoverability via better metadata such as abstracts/summaries and indexing

Scope works for leading publishers, information providers and global enterprises in addressing their content and data management needs. More than 1,000 deep domain experts from many different disciplines (i.e. engineering, chemistry, health sciences, life sciences, humanities, social sciences, law, financial markets) work on top of the company's proprietary or industry leading platforms and produce results that are of very high standards. This is Scope's key value-proposition - a techno-human solution to produce output that is higher in quality as compared to pure technology solutions and that is optimized for cost compared to pure manual offerings.

Mr. Punit Dhandhania, Senior Vice-President, Content Strategy&Solutions, will represent Scope at the NFAIS Annual Conference.

Wolters Kluwer experts to discuss ICD-10 lessons learned and best practices in upcoming complimentary webinar
- 09 Feb 2016

The Health division of Wolters Kluwer, a global provider of information and point of care solutions for the healthcare industry, has announced that medical informatics experts from Health Language® will host a complimentary webinar to discuss best practices and lessons learned from the industry's mammoth transition to ICD-10. Scheduled for February 9, 2016 at 1 p.m. EST, the event will provide insight into common ICD-10 clinical documentation challenges following the October 2015 go-live and solutions for improving reimbursement, reporting and patient tracking.

The webinar is designed to arm healthcare professionals who submit codes for reimbursement-including physicians, HIM managers and financial consultants-with the best-practice knowledge needed to enhance clinical documentation improvement programs. Kate Tierney, Lead Clinical Analyst, and Katie Sutton, Clinical Informatics Manager, will present documentation tips that reduce financial risk and improve specificity as well as explain the potential pitfalls of relying solely on industry crosswalks such as General Equivalency Mappings (GEMs). Drawing on 50 combined years in coding and clinical experience, the presenters will educate attendees on specific nuances and differences between ICD-9 and ICD-10 including use of encounter types in the new coding system.

Experts will also lead a discussion on how to leverage Health Language claims analytics solutions and mapping capabilities to drive informed business decisions and streamline ICD-10 remediation efforts. Through a foundation of analytics, users can identify and stratify DRG shifts and payment variance risks and pinpoint opportunities for clinical documentation improvement. The Health Language team of experts works with healthcare organisations to develop remediation plans and provide terminology (such as CPT-to-PCS) maps that can help remediate legacy systems, enable ICD-10 reports and analytics initiatives and develop effective risk mitigation strategies.

SHARE initiative to host preconference workshop and curate-a-thon at FORCE2016 Conference
- 08 Feb 2016

The SHARE initiative is offering a preconference workshop and curate-a-thon on April 17 in Portland, Oregon, at the FORCE2016 Conference organised by FORCE11, which aims to improve knowledge creation and sharing by encouraging better use of new technologies.

SHARE is building a free, open data set of research and scholarly activities across their life cycle in order to make such output widely accessible, discoverable, and reusable. Launched in beta in April 2015, the SHARE data set has grown to almost 4.5 million records submitted by 95 providers, including CrossRef, DataONE, PubMed Central, library institutional repositories, and more. This infrastructure is contributing to a 'network of knowledge' that links research objects (e.g., workflows, publications, funding information, data sets) and enables better stewardship of this work, verification of claims, meta-scholarship, and the findability and reuse of research outputs.

To maximise use of the data SHARE is aggregating, community involvement and contribution is essential to enhance the highly variable metadata associated with scholarly and research activity, to link objects together as part of the same activity, and in the process to promote innovative scholarship and a range of outputs beyond traditional publications.

SHARE team members Erin Braswell and April Clyburne-Sherin of the Center for Open Science, Cynthia Hudson-Vitale of Washington University in St. Louis, and Judy Ruttenberg of the Association of Research Libraries will lead a workshop on 'Putting the FORCE11 FAIR Principles into Practice: A Community Curation of SHARE' from 1:30 to 5:00 p.m. on April 17. Participants will help prioritize the linked data and curation possibilities of the SHARE data set as they relate to the FORCE11 community and the FAIR principles to make data findable, accessible, interoperable, and reusable.

Following a conference reception, the team will be joined by Jeff Spies of the Center for Open Science in hosting a curate-a-thon from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. on April 17. Curate-a-thon participants will enrich the SHARE data set and implement many of the metadata priorities discussed earlier in the day. Participants will learn how to access data using application programming interfaces (APIs), integrate information and data sets using IPython/Jupyter and other tools, and create links between related digital objects using a new curation tool for SHARE to be launched before the conference.

Interested parties may sign up for one or both of these events on the FORCE2016 Conference website.
