News Facts

Oracle Health Sciences today announced Oracle Healthcare Master Person Index Version 2.0, an open, standards-based solution to provide a single point of reference for information about a patient, provider, or other healthcare entity within and across healthcare organizations. The new release provides solutions for patient and provider indexing, enables faster, more flexible deployment, allows more targeted and accurate data matching, and features expanded support for the Chinese market.
Oracle Healthcare Master Person Index – which identifies, merges and de-duplicates patient and provider identities and demographic information from multiple systems – now supports Simplified Chinese characters for names, as well as mainland China address variations. The latest version also provides Chinese-localization for the data custodian web-interface and the design-time configuration environment.
Oracle Healthcare Master Person Index 2.0 includes an out-of-the-box provider index that helps manage healthcare provider identities and avoids data duplication and errors.
Leveraging its global healthcare market experience, Oracle has also included variations of patient models for the United States, United Kingdom and Australia.
These pre-built, standards-based patient and provider solutions accelerate implementation, enabling healthcare organizations and health information exchanges to quickly set up a patient or provider project foundation using a template, and then configure the solution to their specific requirements.
This release incorporates a broad spectrum of country-specific and international healthcare standards, including the United States National Provider Identifier, Australian Standard for Healthcare Provider Identification (AS 4846), Australian Standard for Healthcare Client Identification (AS 5017), Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise (IHE) Healthcare Provider Directory, and Nationwide Health Information Network (NwHIN) Direct.
New advanced power match options in Oracle Healthcare Master Person Index deliver additional sophisticated matching approaches for increased flexibility and accuracy. This can significantly reduce false positives and the need for manual follow up.
A standards-based solution, Oracle Healthcare Master Person Index supports multiple IHE profiles to help healthcare enterprises and health information exchanges create, process, and manage electronic health records through secure and trusted applications.
Oracle Healthcare Master Person Index 2.0 completed testing of multiple IHE profiles in the IHE North American Connectathon 2012 to demonstrate its ability to quickly interoperate with other IHE-compliant applications. The solution is a fully integrated component of Oracle Health Information Exchange solution which offers secure, scalable exchange of patient information within and across different healthcare entities.
