TechDemocracy on Oracle HealthCare Integration

Being able to exchange data among internal applications as well as with external partners and government agencies has always been a difficult task. Lacking a comprehensive integration strategy, many organizations find themselves creating new or customized solutions for each new business challenge. This splintered approach invariably leads to a heterogeneous environment that is difficult to manage and costly to operate—which is why a large percentage of IT budgets are spent on interoperability-related projects. 

In the healthcare arena, one of the reasons for these difficulties stems from increasingly stringent regulations. Federal data initiatives arising from the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), Public Health Information Network (PHIN), and the National Health Information Network (NHIN) all dictate how data must be formatted, archived and exchanged throughout its lifecycle. The Medicare Modernization Act and the Medicare Information Technology Architecture (MMA and MITA), Regional Health Information Organization (RHIO) initiatives, Health Information Exchanges (HIE), and continually evolving FDA safety laws also influence the way organizations in this dynamic industry must exchange data—adding additional confusion and complexity for health care organizations.

Oracle SOA Suite for healthcare integration is part of a comprehensive middleware environment designed to correlate data points, link applications, and comply with the myriad challenges of this highly regulated, data-intensive industry. Smoothing data interchange helps streamline every phase of the healthcare lifecycle—from initiation, eligibility, and enrollment to service delivery, program analysis, and reporting.

In this screencast, Anant Kadiyala, VP of Technology Services from TechDemocracy helps us understand the challenges underlying the healthcare industry and how Oracle SOA Suite for Healthcare Integration is positioned to help organizations succeed in this space. Oracle’s mature middleware tools help providers to interface clinical and administrative systems as they share information, both internally among departments as well as externally with other providers and insurance carriers. This level of automation makes it easier to respond to citizens, to meet federal requirements, and to adhere to popular industry standards.

SOA's Role in Simplifying Mobile Enablement

For many years web browsers and desktop computers were the primary way to access information from enterprise applications. As mobile devices have proliferated, applications are no longer tied to the desktop. Users want to use their smartphones and tablets to access corporate data and business apps, anytime, anywhere. Many IT departments are having a hard time accommodating these mobile interfaces while preserving hard-won enterprise standards. Rather than continuing to develop applications first for the desktop and then making tactical mobile development choices, IT leaders want a consistent architecture that considers all channels. In this screencast, Suhas Uliyar who heads the mobile strategy at Oracle speaks about how customers can bridge this gap to take their existing and new enterprise applications mobile. He introduces Oracle Mobile Suite and SOA's role in this product offering.
