Verity Inc. and Proxicom Inc. have announced a strategic partnership to provide integration of Verity K2 Enterprise (K2E) search and classification technologies with Proxicom's Healthcare and Life Sciences solution offering. Initially, the two companies plan to co-market Proxicom's Health Plan Provider Portal Solution. Proxicom's Health Plan Provider Portal is an extranet portal for managing claims, benefits, eligibility, and ongoing physician education and research
The Provider Portal aims to make it easier for providers to do business with a health plan. The use of Verity K2E's search and classification capabilities is intended to provide joint customers the ability to quickly and easily search, browse, and retrieve any content within the Proxicom's Provider Portal, enabling healthcare professionals to spend more time providing treatment to patients and less time locating patients' healthcare information. In addition, Verity K2E's real-time indexing capability can enable users to search and retrieve this information as soon as it is created or modified. This will allow physicians to access latest procedures and treatment methods as soon as they are published by researchers on the Provider Portal. Verity's Parametric Selection feature also permits users to quickly sort and filter information by selecting pre-set parameters. Verity's content classification capabilities permit organization of large amounts of diverse information into relevant taxonomies or ‘views'. Verity K2E also supports multiple languages to allow global healthcare centers using the Proxicom's Portal to index, classify, search, and retrieve information in more than 70 business languages.
