March 1, 2010 – Oracle introduced a new enterprise analytics data model for health care today, Oracle Healthcare Data Warehouse Foundation.

Designed to help providers establish a thorough view of their enterprise, the new release integrates data from electronic medical records, clinical departmental systems, patient accounting, research and other source systems, according to the company release. Its foundation is designed to incorporate prebuilt business intelligence, analytic, data mining and performance management applications from Oracle and its partners.

Oracle Healthcare Data Warehouse Foundation includes more than 200 prebuilt operational efficiency measures that can be customized and extended as new metrics are created. The release also includes analysis of the case volumes, utilization rates and turnover times.

Effectively measuring clinical quality, operation efficiency and financial performance for health care providers has been an on going challenge, said Neil de Crescenzo, senior vice president and general manager, Oracle Health Sciences. Electronic health information can help enable quality performance and clinical precision.
