Apixio Using Hadoop, Pig and Cassandra for Advanced Analytics on Medical Records

Apixio uses Hadoop and Pig for analysing medical records and Cassandra for serving seach queries. All production machines are Amazon EC2 instances.

Bob Rogers, Apixio’s chief scientist, explained the importance of machine learning and unstructured-data analysis in the medical field. He said because of the proliferation of ontologies — area-specific terminology for everything from billing to scan results — any sort of search engine must be able to create degrees of association between the various ontologies, as well as common language.

It sounds like the perfect setup for Brisk.
