CareCom A/S was established in 1999 to answer the call for translation services from SNOMED CT in English to Danish. This call began the journey of CareCom, and the creation of our product HealthTerm®. CareCom headquarters are based in Denmark – a small country (5.5 million lives) in a very big world.
Our healthcare system is an internationally recognized tax-funded, state-run, universal healthcare system. Denmark and CareCom are very keen to develop healthcare technology, and are considered front runners in this arena.
Since our creation in 1999, we have had the pleasure of collaborating with clients in Canada and the United States; as well as Denmark, Sweden, United Kingdom and a host of many other European countries. HealthTerm remains focused on terminology and integration, without losing sight of healthcare goals for our clients.

We believe that we can contribute to the improvement of healthcare outcomes, by utilizing our innovative and creative solution.
We believe that the future of healthcare and true interoperability, is the ability to share the same data ‘language’. The data ‘language’ we must share, may be English, Danish, French or ICD-10, SNOMED CT, or LOINC to name a few. It is our mission to enable our clients to see data in a normalized, common language and help ensure positive outcomes for healthcare organizations and patients alike.
We believe in honestly and transparency in our business, and strive to grow with our clients to meet today’s needs and tomorrow’s goals.

HealthTerm® powered by CareCom
What is HealthTerm?
HealthTerm is a terminology platform, developed by CareCom over the last 15 years for the international healthcare sector.
How does HealthTerm Work?
HealthTerm handles all tasks related to terminologies, code systems and structured content – from creation of a new code system to translation of international code systems or mappings between local code lists and international standards.
What makes Heathterm Unique?
HealthTerm is unique in having a full set of tools to create and maintain all types of code systems and at the same time, it has the performance/security to handle the biggest healthcare enterprises on run-time look-up.
Orion is excited to announce our migration to HealthTerm. The flexibility combined with the high quality control of HealthTerm's tooling is by far the best the market offers today. We offer our customers a complete tooling package with everything from ease of use, maintenance of local code systems and mapping to a huge range of standard code systems based on international process standards with workflow control and process statistics. Additionally the software enables handling multi lingual processing on the fly, patient friendly and clinician friendly terms. Thousands of subset for customers to use in their applications come as standard e.g. for quality measure reporting (CQMs) and detailed support for semantic ontologies.
“HealthTerm® can be described as the link between applications and organizations in the healthcare system. It is one of the most advanced products within this specialized market. HealthTerm is a complete solution which can be used in any type of job where classifications and terminologies are essential. HealthTerm ensures consistency as all clinical and administrative systems collect codes from one source – and this in turn provides an increase in patient safety.”
IBM Watson Health is striving to transform global health by applying cognitive computing. Most healthcare data is unstructured and simply not captured by current systems. Watson Health will generate actionable insights from this previously unseen data, backed by HealthTerm’s standardization of clinical data. HealthTerm® will ensure consistent terminology usage by enabling the management of international standard terminologies with integrated versioning and cognitive auto-mapping, while also providing an “off the shelf”, multi-tenant/multi-lingual solution complete with a commercialized API and GUI.
‘…EU Commission: the epSOS project uses HealthTerm® as the 24/7 terminology webserver, where all the national translations and mappings are created using the mapping and translation modules. The final results of these endeavors now represents the epSOS Central Reference Terminology Server for all participating countries.
