Albuquerque, NM (August 22, 2007) – Access Innovations, Inc. (Access), a leader in the data management industry, has utilized its suite of Data Harmony products to assist Revolution Health Group LLC (RHG) in updating and expanding their online consumer health database, RevolutionHealth.com.
RHG is a leading consumer-centric health company founded to transform the manner in which people approach their overall health and wellness. RevolutionHealth.com is their free comprehensive health and medical information website. Updating RHG’s beginning taxonomy, and working together to create the broad XML DTD to accommodate the diverse data streams, Access employed its Data Harmony tools and personnel to rationalize and improve the design and functionality in both these areas. The result is a simple approach to comprehensive results for the online searcher. Access normalized the numerous feeds for all of the data arriving from a wide variety of publishers and indexed it using the revised taxonomy.
Discussing this project, Marjorie Hlava, Access President, observed, “We have thoroughly enjoyed working on this cutting edge health information portal with the RHG team. They provide a unique multifaceted user interface that allows for a very personalized experience. This required Access to develop an XML schema and taxonomy that lets users easily and accurately navigate the RHG Web site. For these reasons, the data normalization required using special proprietary conversion and metadata enhancement techniques.”
“The challenges Revolution Health faced were substantial as we tried to integrate medical content from more than a dozen editorial partners into a nascent portal, and Access Innovations’ depth of knowledge in data transformation and taxonomy development were essential to our successful launch,” said Randy Yanoshak, content systems product manager. “Each partner offered distinct nuances in their data, and Access Innovations flexibly and expertly adapted the Revolution Health schema and their own processes to ensure a smooth integration.”
