Oracle Health Seamless Exchange aggregates and deduplicates health records from multiple providers and systems to reduce manual administrative tasks and provide caregivers with a more comprehensive view into a patient’s medical historyAustin, Texas—April 6, 2023
University of Missouri Health Care (MU Health Care) is using Oracle Health Seamless Exchange to give its care providers a more accurate and comprehensive view of a patient’s health history to help improve safety and inform treatment plans. Seamless Exchange retrieves, aggregates, and deduplicates health data from multiple sources to create a more comprehensive electronic health record (EHR) of a patient’s medical history, even if treatment was received from multiple providers. With this comprehensive view, MU Health Care’s physicians and nurses can see a patient’s health history, medications, and other vital information they need to determine the best course of care.
“In the clinics where we’ve launched Oracle Health Seamless Exchange, we’ve seen the benefits of its data deduplication capabilities firsthand and gained reconciliation efficiencies quickly. It is simplifying the ingestion of critical external health data,” said Robert Pierce, MD, medical director for Clinical Decision Support, MU Health Care. “Now, with external patient data more consistently integrated into the local chart, our clinicians can make care decisions more confidently, considering all relevant factors so patients receive more consistent and better care.”
Patients commonly receive medical treatment across multiple facilities, providers, and health systems. This leaves their critical health data stored in disparate, disconnected systems, which can make it challenging for clinicians to have access to a complete view of a patient’s health history to inform care decisions.
Oracle Health Seamless Exchange combines health data from multiple healthcare facilities, including from most EHRs and other outside sources, to create a more comprehensive, clearer view of a patient’s care history. Seamless Exchange automatically reconciles new data against existing data to eliminate redundant information and manual data management. This cleansed data can then be accessed directly in the clinician’s workflow without the need to search through multiple sources to find critical information, which not only improves care quality but also supports patient safety.
“Transforming, organizing, and understanding data is critical to helping physicians, individuals, and communities get the information they need to improve healthcare,” said Sam Lambson, vice president of interoperability, Oracle Health. “With Seamless Exchange, we are taking data exchange beyond connectivity to true usability. This is a big step forward for the industry. Not only does it immediately ease the administrative burden on clinicians, it sets the stage for a more connected and open healthcare ecosystem that will deliver better outcomes for patients and providers while making global health systems more useable and equitable.”
Today, hundreds of millions of outside data records have been exchanged and aggregated using Seamless Exchange. MU Health Care is currently using Seamless Exchange at two of its ambulatory clinics, Fulton Family Health Associates and Family Medicine – Mexico, and is planning to expand its deployment across its health system this year.
To see Seamless Exchange in action, visit booth #921 at the 2023 HIMSS Global Health Conference in Chicago, April 17-21, 2023. Oracle is also sponsoring the Interoperability Showcase, which demonstrates the value of interoperability for connecting health and care, with related solutions featured in booth #7946.
