Albuquerque, NM (September 28, 2007) – Access Innovations, Inc. (Access), a leader in the data management industry, has been chosen to work closely with AGIS Network (AGIS), formerly AssistGuide, on the launch of their new elder care national portal, agis.com.
AGIS aggregates health information and resources for the care of the elderly by connecting government agencies, employers, service providers and families in the elder-care and disability communities. In order to improve the user experience on their website, AGIS retained Access to provide consulting services in the design of their metadata. Access’s editors and programmers employed its Data Harmony tools to process incoming data from a variety of publishers and to normalize the format, which they also helped design. In addition, Access developed the taxonomy for AGIS, and then utilized it to create indexing to the data.
Tina Flammer, vice president of AGIS National Systems, commented on Access’s contributions: “Access Innovations provided the tools and expertise we needed, enabling us to put together the most comprehensive online resource for caregivers. Their skills in handling many different types of data, along with their experience in the health care area, make them a valuable partner.”
Access president Marjorie Hlava responded, “This is a great project, a perfect vehicle for elder care information at a time when many of us sorely need these resources at our fingertips. Helping create the product is the optimal match for our corporate skill set, both in people and technological resources. We are able to provide Data Harmony solutions at both the production and the portal ends.”
