Long and winding road to Bargemon, France
CareCom’s Chief Financial Officer, Claus Hansen, has started his summer vacation. Rather than taking the easy route and flying with his favorite airline, Claus has embarked on a 21-day bike ride from Herlev, Denmark to Bargemon, France. Claus wants to prove that he can still take on such a physical challenge at the impressive age of 67. Although he hasn’t been riding bicycles for long, he’s always been active: in his youth, he played elite soccer and has continued to live an active lifestyle. Claus is accompanied by his wife who drives alongside him every day and is cheered on by the CareCom teams in Virum, Denmark and the U.S. He’s a perfect showing that healthy living is sustainable and isn’t just for 20- and 30-somethings.
At CareCom, Claus takes care of the financial side of things in close collaboration with our CEO. His background as a professional accountant helps him to advise other chief officers at CareCom and guide global operations. His dedication, both to CareCom and to healthy living, inspire us to continue to improve to help others live their healthiest and happiest life.
During his bike ride thus far, temperatures have been in the high 80s – something that Claus, as a Dane, is unaccustomed to. “It’s so warm. Yesterday it was 90 degrees,” Claus explained. He’s dealing with the heat by staying hydrated. “I’ve never drank so much water as I have these last seven days. I think I’m drinking 4-6 liters of water every day,” he told us as he geared up for his eighth consecutive day of biking. He says it’s been a challenge, even more so than he originally anticipated, but that the hardest thing is finding his way: summer road construction often sends him off his path to a long detour. Difficult as 100 kilometers plus detours every day is, he says the physical demands have been the least of his problems. “The legs are good!” he joked.
Once he reaches Bargemon, he plans to take a more traditional vacation, relax with his wife, and reflect on his accomplishments. Today, he’s in southern Germany: well on his way to his final destination. Help us cheer Claus on as he bicycles his way to France all the way from Denmark!
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.
