Oracle updates healthcare analytics platform
Oracle has released an updated version of Oracle Enterprise Healthcare Analytics, a business intelligence and performance management solution aimed at helping healthcare organisations make informed decisions that improve financial performance, care quality and outcomes.
The new version has added modules to support the mobile workforce through functionality for the iPad and iPhone, including the ability to initiate actions and workflows directly from mobile devices.
An Oracle spokesperson said the update would address a growing demand across the healthcare industry for mobile, easy-to-use and rapidly deployable analytical applications.
The product includes Oracle Healthcare Analytics Data Integration, which consolidates, integrates, validates and loads source data from clinical, financial, administrative and research systems into Oracle’s healthcare data model.
The new component tackles one of the most complex and time-intensive aspects of analytics and data management, the spokesperson said.
It also includes components to allow organisations to map staffing requirements to patient scheduling and optimise the use of critical resources such as operating rooms through its Healthcare Operating Room Analytics.
It also contains new attributes that support comparative effectiveness research and formulary modelling.
The total solution includes Oracle Healthcare Analytics Data Integration, Oracle Health Sciences Cohort Explorer, Oracle Healthcare Operating Room Analytics and Oracle Healthcare Provider Supply Chain Analytics (PDF).
