UW Health, the integrated health system of the University of Wisconsin-Madison, has selected Oracle Cloud for its enterprise resource planning (ERP) system, which includes Financials, Supply Chain and Human Capital Management. With Oracle Cloud Applications, UW Health can increase business agility, optimize the delivery of healthcare services and improve patient outcomes.
UW Health serves more than 600,000 patients annually, with 1,500 physicians and 17,000 staff at seven hospitals and 87 outpatient clinics. To meet growing demand for its nationally recognized regional health system, UW Health needed to replace its 20-year old legacy systems with one unified cloud-based ERP platform for financials, supply chain management and human resources to support its current and future needs.
“Technology and regulations have accelerated the rate of change in the healthcare industry and our legacy business systems were struggling to keep up,” said Elizabeth Bolt, senior vice president and chief operating officer, UW Health. "To ensure we could continue to deliver the best quality services as we grow, we needed agile systems that can quickly turn data into insight. Going forward, we will manage all of our HR, supply chain and financial data on a single integrated platform.”
“Healthcare organizations operate in a very dynamic environment, with changing regulations, best practices and technologies,” said Rick Jewell, senior vice president of applications development, Oracle. “With Oracle Cloud Applications, the UW Health team will always be on the latest version of our business apps enabling them to benefit from innovative new features that will enhance business agility and productivity, and, most importantly, improve patient care.”
