MD Anderson, a center devoted exclusively to cancer patient care, research, education and prevention, has chosen Oracle Health Sciences applications and Oracle technology as the foundation for an organization-wide analytics initiative designed to enable a new generation of personalized cancer treatment that improves outcomes. To achieve its goals, the center will deploy a wide range of Oracle solutions, including Oracle Enterprise Healthcare Analytics and Oracle Translational Research Center.
MD Anderson is also deploying Oracle Database and Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition.
Dr. John Frenzel, chief medical information officer, MD Anderson, said, “Oracle’s integrated health sciences applications, enterprise applications and technology stack will help provide one of the robust foundations that we need to accelerate deployment, and ultimately, discovery of life-saving treatments.”
The new platform will bring together clinical, genomic, financial, administrative and operational information from internal and external sources to yield insights that drive care innovation and optimize operational efficiency. It will support the center’s Moon Shots Program, an effort to dramatically accelerate the pace of converting scientific discoveries into clinical advances that reduce cancer deaths. Oracle applications and technology will power the enterprise analytics initiative, one of the program’s platforms.
Through the use of Oracle Enterprise Healthcare Analytics, MD Anderson is creating the platform to improve delivery of actionable information to their customers so they can effectively improve processes.
“MD Anderson is recognized globally for its ground-breaking research and life-saving advances in cancer care. Its next generation analytics initiative, built on industry-leading platforms like Oracle Enterprise Healthcare Analytics and Oracle technology, stands to further amplify healthcare insight and accelerate innovation,” said Neil de Crescenzo, senior vice president and general manager, Oracle Health Sciences.
