We’re excited to announce the launch of the Oracle Identity Governance integration for Oracle Health EHR, formerly known as Cerner Millennium. This release enables healthcare organizations to manage user access to electronic health records (EHR), synchronize data, and enhance security and operational efficiency. The connector automates data sharing, helps streamline provisioning workflows, and can support compliance with regulatory requirements.

Oracle Identity Governance for Health EHR

Oracle Identity Governance provides a comprehensive solution for managing the entire user lifecycle and controlling access entitlements across various on-premises and cloud services. Administrators can easily create, manage, and revoke user accounts across different workloads, granting access privileges based on roles and dynamic responsibilities within the organization. This automated approach helps enforce compliant policies and mitigates the risk of unauthorized access.

Oracle Health EHR is a robust healthcare management platform encompassing modules for clinical documentation, order management, pharmacy services, laboratory functions, radiology services, and billing. This system facilitates effective collaboration among healthcare providers, real-time data sharing, workflow optimization, and supports the delivery of high-quality care with increased efficiency.

Supported use cases

Integration of Oracle Identity Governance and Oracle Health EHR supports the following use cases:

  • Data synchronization: Helps ensure accurate synchronization of identity information between Oracle Health EHR and Oracle Identity Governance.
  • User provisioning and management: Streamlines healthcare user management, including account creation, role assignments, and access control.
  • Access control and role management: Controls user access and roles in healthcare systems to help ensure appropriate access levels.
  • Compliance management: Helps with your compliance objectives, such as HIPAA and HITECH regulations, through simplified access reviews and segregation of duties controls, safeguarding sensitive patient information, and facilitating regular auditing.

Key benefits

The integration of these two services offers the following benefits:

  • Enhanced patient care: Interoperability with user and entitlement management capabilities in laboratory information systems (LIS) enables faster test results by improving communication between clinical and laboratory staff.
  • Streamlined collaboration: Integration with user and entitlement management capabilities in clinical decision support systems (CDSS) ensures secure access to CDSS features, enhancing productivity and regulatory compliance.
  • Improved security: Oracle Identity Governance controls access to secure patient data, while Oracle Health EHR manages health information, limiting access to authorized personnel and reducing breach risks.
  • Efficient workflows: Automating user account management saves time and minimizes errors and security risks.
  • Regulatory compliance: Integration of Oracle Identity Governance and Oracle Health EHR helps ensure necessary access controls and audit trails to help you achieve compliance objectives regarding HIPAA and HITECH regulations.

Conclusion

We’re excited to make the Oracle Health EHR integration with Oracle Identity Governance available to customers. This release marks an important advancement in centralized identity management for healthcare organizations, and we can’t wait to hear your feedback.
