Standards-based Application Development
CAL2CAL promotes standards-based application development and is actively involved
in International standards organizations like HL7. It has published papers and presented
in several prestigious international conferences on implementing standards-based
Integration and Interoperability
As a continued effort in standards-based development, CAL2CAL is focusing on promoting
integration and interoperability of existing data systems. The integration framework
developed by CAL2CAL, CALHi3 can leverage existing investments in data
systems by implementing a SOA based messaging infrastructure around an Integrated
Data Repository. The CALHi3 framework is a collection of existing applications,
custom software solutions, services and COTS products with a special emphasis on
facilitating the exchange of data within and between applications and entities.
CALHi3 is a best practice implementation representing the culmination
of expertise and experience gain from implementing integration and interoperability
concepts at federal, state, and local levels.
Public Health & Healthcare Informatics
CAL2CAL has worked with several public health and state and local government agencies
to develop IT vision and implementation plan. It also constructed and implemented
several case management and Patient Information Management Systems that merge sophisticated
technologies with user-friendly interfaces. These systems provide health information
management, case management, communication and dashboard capabilities have been
deployed at public health agencies and hospitals. Our experience and research initiatives
have resulted in Healthcare IT Standards domain knowledge and implementations related
to HL-7, HIPAA, SNOMED and LOINC.
CAL2CAL has developed several integrated systems that provide the tools necessary
for physicians in doing their job. These systems complement investment in tradition
hospital information systems that are generally targeted towards hospital administration
and patient billing. Our tools have the ability to integrate patient and health
information from a variety of systems, and deliver them to the physician at the
point of care while respecting patient privacy and data security concerns. Information
can be delivered to the physician on a variety of platforms, including mobile devices.
Today’s business processes and systems typically span and connect to multiple sources
that may be distributed across geographical, political and cultural boundaries.
Knowledge is more potent than data or information and understanding and manipulating
knowledge and vocabulary is critical to successfully manage business operations.
CAL2CAL has significant experience in and has developed Knowledge Management tools
for manipulating vocabulary and lexicon from a variety of sources. These tools can
overlay standardized lexicon on diverse data fields and transform raw data into
Data Mining, Business Intelligence & GIS
CAL2CAL has expertise in data mining and business intelligence technologies. Our
AVR (Analysis, Visualization & Reporting) Framework and classification and clustering
algorithms provide data modeling and forecasting for decision support and risk management.
These algorithms can detect trends, identify patterns and deviations, and support
ad-hoc visual representation of data as well as integration with executive dashboards
and GIS mapping tools.
Information & Communication Technologies (ICT) & Social Safety Net Programs
CAL2CAL Corporation is committed to developing and integrating alternative, non-traditional
low-cost information systems and communication tools. These initiatives integrate
IT solutions and products with available administrative services and infrastructure,
to provide aid to poor and needy populations living in developing countries.
CAL2CAL has developed and re-engineered complex on-line real-time business systems
for some of the largest financial and insurance conglomerates. These systems provide
integrated line-of-business support for core functional areas, using web-based technology
and custom software development. They deliver information management and financial
and operational reporting services to company management, key employees and independent
