BELLEVUE, Wash. & LAS VEGAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Edifecs, a global health information technology solutions company, today unveiled its Data Science Product Line with the product, Smart Decisions, the first-of-its-kind machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI) platform in combination with a Data Science app store. Available to health plans and provider organizations, Smart Decisions brings deep analytics capabilities and ready-to-deploy applications to any healthcare legacy application and platform, granting easier access to machine learning and AI benefits.
Smart Decisions allows any health plan or provider to easily jumpstart the efficiencies of machine learning across many common analytics functions without the high costs, trial-and-error start-up phase of incorporating new technologies. Smart Decisions is pre-integrated into Edifecs source systems such as Smart Trading and Encounter Management, greatly reducing implementation and integration costs to harvest analytics value and insights from EDI data.
