Cleveland Clinic and Oracle are improving healthcare delivery and reducing costs through a more efficient process and workflow. The cloud-based healthcare platform is expected to roll out at Cleveland Clinic London in 2019 and expand to Cleveland Clinic’s domestic locations in 2020.
The innovative healthcare platform benefits back-office personnel, providers and patients. It is scalable for domestic and international growth providing enhanced financial forecasting, revenue management and data integration, which allows for more effective and efficient decisions regarding supply procurement and inventory management.
“Cleveland Clinic has both an opportunity and an obligation to shape the future of healthcare while fostering a culture and environment to provide care in an exceptional way,” said William M. Peacock III, Cleveland Clinic Chief of Operations. “Our work with Oracle’s cloud technologies is a testament to our commitment to evolving our IT and finance platform, positioning us to support anticipated growth both domestically and internationally. Moving to the cloud will be critical in meeting these goals.”
Healthcare is a key industry for Oracle and with Oracle Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) Cloud and Oracle Supply Chain Management (SCM) Cloud, Cleveland Clinic aims to transform its finance function by enabling increased productivity and lower costs. In addition, the health system will increase the efficiency of operations by taking advantage of real-time insights and automated supply and demand planning.
“Our customers play an important role in shaping our products, inspiring innovative features and defining industry-specific best practices for Oracle Cloud Applications,” said Steve Miranda, executive vice president, Applications Development, Oracle. “Cleveland Clinic is an innovative healthcare organization that recognizes the potential of the cloud to enhance productivity. Our collaboration will create a future-proof business platform for Cleveland Clinic’s global organization.”
