Looming Healthcare Deadlines Place New Emphasis on Flexible IT Solutions

Government organizations are under pressure to meet the sweeping provisions of last year’s Affordable Care Act. At the top of the list is a requirement to launch health insurance exchanges by 2014. With deadlines looming and budgets strapped for cash, many states are looking to new IT solutions to help them quickly get new services up and running.

Oracle addresses these needs with Oracle’s health information exchange solutions, which are built with open standards for securely exchanging electronic health information. Key applications in the portfolio include Oracle’s Siebel Case Management and Oracle Policy Automation.

Oracle Exadata Database Machine also offers significant value to meet the extensive requirements for high performance, secure data storage, and business intelligence.

Oracle Solutions Align with New Regulatory Details
Oracle healthcare solutions complement new regulatory details that emerged in May 2011, when the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, a division of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, updated its guidelines for health exchange and Medicaid IT systems architectures. The update focused on seven key IT areas, including systems integration, service-oriented architectures, isolation of business rules, and security and privacy measures.

“Oracle healthcare solutions are aligned closely with this recent architectural guidance,” says Kimberly Ellison-Taylor, Oracle executive director, health and human services industry solutions.

She adds that Oracle offers other resources for healthcare agencies, including the expertise of Oracle Consulting, to help public organizations meet new requirements under tight deadlines.
