Bringing down the virtual walls around hospital data

Integrating an organization’s internal data is challenging. It requires strategic vision by the organization’s leadership and an open mindset on different levels.

Semantic search has been used mainly by academics and experts, but there simply weren’t enough workable solutions accessible to common users. But that’s all changing now with our semantic search platform DISQOVER.
