We are IDENTIFICA powered by Pragmatic Data, passionate about transforming your data into business results. IDENTIFICA is dedicated to the creation, versioning, validation, and overall management of data. From point of creation to systems of record, ID offers a comprehensive and non-invasive approach for fit for purpose data utility for efficient and effective decision making across the value chain.
Our services are meant to solve a practical problem and when the problem is addressed, our clients and we are happy (all too often big software systems get in the way of the data.) Secondly, our name means pragmatics-oriented, that is, pertaining to the purpose of your data for your business processes.
Pragmatics is the study of the purpose of information, i.e., meaning in the world of action. It is the 4th and highest level of the study of the form and meaning of information:
Thus, we understand data on all 4 levels. For example, we understand terminologies and ontologies and we can find words in texts or translate between vocabularies. We also understand parsers and we can extract information from natural language or manipulate formal language. We can process higher level meaning based on ontologies and data structures. But ultimately we understand that terminology, form, meaning of data is there for a purpose, data is communicated and stored to facilitate workflow, to make something good happen in the real world. Pragmatics is the ultimate benchmark for all data management tasks. Our focus on pragmatics means that we get the task at hand done more expediently because we keep the purpose in mind.
We are experts and thought leaders in health informatics and international data standards for medicinal products. Our data management solutions have supported the world’s most high quality drug knowledge base managed cooperatively by industry and regulator (USA). We believe that data from authoritative sources are more reliable and up to date when properly managed with technology than even the most sophisticated secondary clean up efforts can accomplish.
We have enabled visionary senior executives and leaders in making significant impacts on data integrity and quality for both, manufacturing, regulatory, clinical, and distribution chain processes. If you are a visionary leader of your organization, we can propel you toward your business goals through better data. Our ID LIfecycle software is a nimble document and system-oriented platform that brings to life semantic content though terminology and semantic NLP, and structured authoring techniques. The scope and depth of data structuring is pragmatically oriented to your business process realities.
Data remains tied to the source through the chain of transformations, submissions, and down-stream use. With 30 years deep experience in biomedical data management we have seen many "magic bullets" that failed to deliver as represented. The pragmatic difference is that we have the vision and domain expertise to deliver; we want to get you to executing your visionary goals, one pragmatic and successful step at a time.
We provide thorough data management assessments, intelligence, and solutions to optimize your data and process strategies for improved business efficiency and more effective decision making from concept to execution.
We provide validation and life-cycle management services, ensuring quality and integrity of your data.
Dr. Schadow, has been chiefly designing the Health-Level-7 (HL7) standard Reference Information Model, an object-model that addresses of hundreds of complex use cases of biomedical data and workflow management.
IDENTIFICA’s team of Subject Matter Experts provides in-depth knowledge sharing of Health Authority (HA) requirements. This information is derived from the ongoing interactions with global HA’s, experience from both regulatory and industry activities, and ongoing thought-leadership within the Life Sciences communities.
We can deliver even larger software projects on short notice. We have strategic partnerships with software development firms which allows us to scale up developer quickly as needed while never loosing our unique focus on your data its purpose for your business.
Sometimes many hands are needed to deliver custom software to our clients. Identifica can deliver software solutions on short notice thanks to our strategic partnerships with software developers both locally and overseas.
While we can deliver these solutions and we are ready for the phases of the project where large scale custom development is required, we continue to keep our data-centric orientation. This is why our products are more intelligent and light weight than what others deliver who take a software-program focus.
We believe in data and business functions (pragmatics again) with the minimum necessary architectural complexity, the minimum number of lines of code. For our clients this means less baggage to maintain and often more flexibility.

ID-LifeCycle™ Powered by Pragmatic Data is a robust G-PLDM™ (Global Product Lifecycle Data Management) Solution.
ID is purposefully built for validation, versioning, and management of all types of data and formats (i.e., structured and unstructured) utilizing robust internal business rules and regulatory requirements,
ID Lifecycle allows for traceability from every source document and prevents records from being modified within a particular version once finalized. Content is linked to every record that came before it (traceability) and records are permanent, chronologically ordered, and available to all others based on configurable roles/permissions.
