Clinisys to mine Big Data on COPD Indicators

Clinisys EMR Inc., an Edmonton based health informatics company involved in providing health data analytics solutions and cloud-based Electronic Medical Records (EMR) systems, recently began a research project that will mine Big Data related to Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD). The project is expected to provide new insights to health administrators and clinicians for opportunities to improve care, lower costs and save lives. COPD is a chronic inflammatory lung disease that causes obstructed airflow from the lungs.
