In a typical health care model, there is an insurance company (“payer”) in between a hospital (“provider”) and an employer (“sponsor”). The payer is a healthcare organization that pays claims and administers insurance or benefit product. The sponsor buys the health benefit product from the payer for its employees. That means the employees become members and eligible to go to hospital when they need care. The providers are paid by the payer for the service provided to their members.

The Diagnosis Groupers developed by Deerwalk was bundled in the initial release of its product, Makalu, in January 2012. These Diagnosis Groupers provide support for the reporting categories and quality metrics that our clients frequently need. Moreover, since many of our clients use “home-grown” codes, being able to assign these non-standard diagnosis codes to standardized groupers allows them to easily incorporate these codes into reports and analytics.
Hbase is counterintuitive for any one with experience of row-based traditional Relational Database System. The major difference between Hbase or any of the other Google Bigtable clones with RDBMS, is that unlike RDBMS which mainly focuses on the question how the data is going to be stored, they instead focuses on how to access the data. That is RDBMS model mainly deals with identifying the entities and their relationship thus mandating the normalization of data for ACID assurance.
