The ability to develop the right technology to support patient needs and anticipate changes in the health sciences industry is pivotal in advancing how next-generation healthcare will be defined and administered.
This week, Oracle announced the creation of the Oracle Health Sciences Institute (OHSI), in partnership with Sun Labs. The Institute is focused on research that will accelerate IT innovation to advance personalized medicine and the delivery of safe and effective treatments and healthcare services to patients around the globe.
OHSI will work in tandem with academic research centers, focusing on a targeted set of research areas fundamental to R&D and healthcare delivery challenges facing health sciences organizations today. OHSI’s research priorities currently include artificial intelligence and semantic technology; genomic, genetic, and phenotypic data analysis; data mining to support optimization of clinical trials; and predictive algorithms and other technology to advance patient safety and provide advanced decision support at the point of care.
“By combining Oracle’s and Sun Labs’ scientific talent and resources with collaborators worldwide, OHSI is uniquely positioned to help design IT innovations that will aid in improving patient care around the world,” said Neil de Crescenzo, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Oracle Health Sciences.
