As technology innovation is ushering in an exciting new era in the healthcare industry, Oracle’s unique expertise and strategic solutions are helping healthcare organizations thrive in this new environment.
In our always-on, always-connected world, healthcare consumers expect instant access to customer service, not just from 9 AM to 5 PM. It’s often no longer good enough for health plans to staff call centers during standard business hours. Members today typically want to be able to log in and help themselves to the answers they need from self-service channels whenever they want — and they want the experience to be highly personal.
One contact center benchmark study (see next page) revealed self-service channels can be a win-win for both businesses and consumers.1 When done well, self-service solutions can help businesses improve customer satisfaction while reducing costs. And consumers appreciate the convenience of getting answers quickly and efficiently.
Today in healthcare the communication infrastructure is the backbone in IT. New reimbursement models are amplifying the need for care coordination, and communication between multiple departments, constituencies, and workflows is required. High-performing healthcare systems are adopting enterprise communication solutions to eliminate silos of information, improve patient care during critical situations, and make the most of their IT budget.

In most use cases involving flash storage deployments, the business environment changes, driving a need for higher-performance storage. However, the case of Epic Systems Corporation software is the opposite—the storage requirements haven’t changed recently, but the options for addressing them have.
Epic, a privately-held company founded in 1979 and based in Verona,Wisconsin, makes applications for medical groups, hospitals and other healthcare organizations. Epic software typically exhibits high frequency,random storage accesses with stringent latency requirements. IBM has been working with Epic to develop host-side and storage-side solutions to meet these requirements. Extensive testing has demonstrated that the combination of IBM® POWER8™ servers and IBM FlashSystem™ storage more than meets the performance levels Epic recommends for the backend storage supporting its software implementations—at a cost point multiple times lower than other storage alternatives.
Chilmark Research, a global research and advisory firm, recently released a report rating vendors and solutions in the healthcare analytics industry. IBM Watson Health, a leader in healthcare analytics, has put together this infographic comparing how its solutions stack up against some of the closest competitors in the industry in areas such as population discovery and definition, predictive analytics, cost and utilization, and claims data contribution.

In healthcare, bringing new and reliable products to market is essential for staying relevant and competitive. That's why when McKesson needed to transform its development environments, the nation's largest healtchcare IT solutions provider turned to HP CloudSystem Matrix. By moving from a traditional rack-mount server infrastructure to an HP CloudSystem Matrix integrated solution, McKesson saw an 84-fold increase in processing speeds on their development environments (down to 40 mins. from 7 days). They also enjoyed a 42% reduction in physical server count and a 67% decrease in management time. Read this case study to see how your own organization can use an HP CloudSystem Matrix solution to enhance productivity, reduce costs, and drive innovation.

Collaboration across the healthcare team has always been important. What’s different today? You can collaborate over video anywhere anytime to education, delivery care or get things done!
Education, It’s a good thing, right? But education to prevent unnecessary re-hospitalizations is a great thing. Patients with chronic disease may find themselves in the hospital on Monday, released to go home a few days later, just to find themselves back in the Emergency room the following Monday creating an expensive cycle of declining health. Collaborative video education is breaking this cycle helping healthcare teams and patients better manage disease through community and home based education.
Healthcare and Life Sciences organizations are using data to generate knowledge that helps them provide better patient care, enhances biopharma research and development, and streamlines operations across the product innovation and care delivery continuum. Next-Gen business intelligence (BI) solutions can help organizations reduce time-to-insight by aggregating and analyzing structured and unstructured data sets in real or near-real time.
AWS and AWS Partner Network (APN) Partners offer technology solutions to help you gain data-driven insights to improve care, fuel innovation, and enhance business performance.
In this webinar, you’ll hear from APN Partners Deloitte and hc1.com about their solutions, built on AWS, that enable Next-Gen BI in Healthcare and Life Sciences.
Join this webinar to learn:
How Healthcare and Life Sciences organizations are using cloud-based analytics to fuel innovation in patient care and biopharmaceutical product development.
How AWS supports BI solutions f
Healthcare and Life Sciences organizations are adopting cloud-based workloads at a significant pace. A 2017 HIMSS study found that 65% of Healthcare organizations were using cloud-based services, and nearly 88% of those organizations were utilizing Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solutions, which have become the preferred deployment method for many clinical application vendors.
This eBook highlights advantages of using AWS to create and maintain cloudbased Next-Gen BI Solutions for Healthcare and Life Sciences organizations. This includes use cases from diverse organizations that have utilized AWS and APN Partners to manage and analyze data, and to discover insights otherwise obscured by the sheer volume of available information. Solutions from APN Partners can help your organization take the next step in building robust processes for making data-driven decisions that improve patient care, organizational processes, and innovative product development efforts.
The shift to value-based care means that healthcare organizations should expand their concept of return on investment (ROI) to include the ability of solutions to increase efficiency and contain healthcare costs. Data analytics and automation capabilities have become important tools for providers aiming to maximize value-based payments. Learn from this whitepaper about the best ways for healthcare organizations to measure health IT ROI in the value-based environment, including specific examples of how certain providers are approaching this challenge.
Involved, informed patients are better able to manage their own care.

VoIP is rapidly becoming the standard for voice communications in business, government, education, government and healthcare. It offers capabilities that far exceed traditional phone systems, with unified communication platforms promising to integrate messaging, mobility, collaboration, relationship management, teleconferencing and other advanced features.
The transition to VoIP presents a number of challenges like the need to install new equipment in the MDF and the IDFs dispersed throughout your organization's network/telecom wiring closets. Typical closet designs can't handle the increased wattage and heat output of the PoE switches used to power IP phones.
In this white paper you'll learn:
• The basics of VoIP migration and implementation
• What issues to consider when upgrading network/telecom wiring closets for VoIP
• What cost-effective solutions are available to power and protect a VoIP network wiring closet

By bringing data together from inside and outside the traditional healthcare system, and quickly delivering solutions into people’s hands via a new generation of enterprise health clouds.
Fueled by new technologies, expanding regulations and greater patient expectations, there’s a clinical content gold rush in the healthcare market. Sources and types of clinical content grow at an exponential rate and through increasingly refined input methods, including voice and improved OCR, clinicians capture more unstructured information about their patients than ever before. Making all clinically relevant content available together, in one place seems like a simple request. Must the response be so complex?
