Oracle has announced several significant enhancements to its healthcare solutions, aimed at improving patient care, optimizing clinical expertise, and reducing costs. These enhancements include new cloud-based electronic health record (EHR) capabilities, generative AI services, public Application Programming Interfaces (APIs), and back-office enhancements designed specifically for the healthcare industry.
One of the key innovations is the next-generation EHR platform, which focuses on improving patient and provider experiences through easy-to-use, consumer-grade applications. The platform features a modern interface and intuitive, guided processes, allowing patients to conveniently provide their health data through a secure patient portal. Using advanced document recognition, computer vision, and voice services, patients can upload documents, such as their driver’s license, which will then automatically populate in the EHR. Patients can also schedule appointments and check lab results using simple voice commands.
For providers, the new EHR platform offers time-saving features that increase efficiency. The goal is to reduce wasted time, eliminate redundant processes, and deliver a functionally rich EHR system that adds value at every step of care delivery.
Oracle Health is also building an open ecosystem for innovation by making its clinical and financial resources available via public APIs. These APIs enable deeper integration with Oracle’s clinical solutions and allow partners, customers, and third-party vendors to create more advanced customizations and workflows. Healthcare organizations can tap into this broader ecosystem of solutions to solve business challenges and provide better experiences for staff and patients.
Additionally, Oracle has introduced new generative AI capabilities integrated with its EHR solutions. The Oracle Clinical Digital Assistant leverages the power of generative AI and voice commands to automate manual work, enabling providers to focus more on patient care. Patients can also take self-service actions, such as scheduling appointments or accessing clinical information, using simple voice commands.
These new innovations from Oracle aim to connect the healthcare ecosystem, improve patient and provider experiences, and ultimately enhance the delivery of efficient and effective care.
