News Facts

As part of its ongoing commitment to provide healthcare organizations with infrastructure for integrating data from disparate healthcare systems, Oracle today announced Oracle® Healthcare Transaction Base 6.1.
Oracle Healthcare Transaction Base offers a multiple-use data repository that enables healthcare organizations to normalize the structure and vocabulary of administrative, clinical and financial healthcare data to help reduce costs and improve patient care.
The new release includes expanded web services support for addressing meaningful use requirements for continuity of care documents.
Oracle Healthcare Transaction Base has now achieved Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise (IHE) certification as an IHE XDS document repository, a key for meeting meaningful use solution architectures that store and query documents from third-party components.
The solution also supports IHE XDS.b web services, saving customers that comply with IHE architecture from having to create custom web services and helping to significantly reduce their total cost of ownership.
Oracle Healthcare Transaction Base leverages a standards-based, healthcare-focused reference information model that addresses global healthcare requirements and preserves a healthcare organization’s investment in technology.
The backbone for many of today’s healthcare interoperability projects, Oracle Healthcare Transaction Base currently supports more than 10 million patient records worldwide.
