Classification, Validation, Coding & Tagging

Your data has been digitized and scrubbed. Now it’s time to turn that data into valuable information that can be searched, analyzed, repurposed, and monetized.

Whatever your data type, Aptara begins by verifying its structure and content, ensuring that the right information populates the right database fields and then confirming the validity of the data in each field.

XBRL for SEC. SPL for FDA.

Once validated, your data is ready to be filed with the appropriate regulatory agency. Both the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) strictly regulate the format of the data in the filings they require.

Aptara tags the data—in eXtensible Business Reporting Language (XBRL) for the SEC or Structured Product Labeling (SPL) for the FDA—so that it can be transmitted to each agency’s databases smoothly and accurately.

We work in conjunction with some of the largest outsourcing firms in the world, handling back-end tagging and coding functions for them.

Coding for healthcare

Aptara codes medical records for the current World Health Organization (WHO) ICD-10 (International Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems) and CPT (current procedural terminology).

We also handle:
