Semaphore makes it radically easier for healthcare organizations to gain data-driven insights from standardized and centralized versions of their data.

SAN FRANCISCO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#aihealthcareCarta Healthcare®, provider of solutions for common healthcare data challenges through a combination of people, processes, and technology, today announced the release of Semaphore, an integrated development environment (IDE) built for healthcare organizations’ internal data science teams to design and deploy custom applications for analysis and visualization of their data. Powered by Cartographer®, Carta Healthcare’s AI platform, Semaphore has instant access to standardized datasets derived from across the organization’s health records, significantly decreasing the time spent collecting data up front.

“Healthcare organizations need to be able to use the data they have today, today — to improve patient care quality, enhance operational efficiencies, support research initiatives, and reduce costs,” said Matt Hollingsworth, CEO and Co-founder of Carta Healthcare. “Siloed systems, data security requirements to meet patient privacy regulations, and internal approval processes often result in lengthy delays for new analytics packages to become available to the teams who need them. Semaphore directly addresses this challenge.”

Semaphore was built in-house by Carta Healthcare’s own data scientists to address the shortcomings of existing off-the-shelf IDEs when used within the healthcare environment. Semaphore offers all the benefits of a traditional IDE, in addition to:

  • Drastically reducing the time and costs for initial data collection, deployment, and maintenance
  • Providing access to healthcare-specific tools, support from Carta Healthcare’s data scientists, and Cartographer’s ready-to-use capabilities (APIs, OLAP cubes, knowledge graphs, data visualizations, and more)
  • Allowing data scientists to share and reuse code and applications across different projects, which is common in other industries but limited in healthcare due to patient privacy protections

Semaphore is powered by Cartographer, an AI-driven analytics tool that powers Carta Healthcare’s broader ecosystem of products. By searching, analyzing, and standardizing data from all data sources, Cartographer provides organizations with high-quality, immediately usable data.

The standardized data sets created by Cartographer are also used by Atlas, Carta Healthcare’s AI-assisted data abstraction solution for submitting to clinical registries, and Navigator, a complete analytics tool for solving common healthcare operational challenges such as anesthesia and nursing coverage and operating room scheduling. Together, Atlas, Semaphore, Navigator, and Cartographer allow healthcare organizations to collect, analyze, and act on their data.
