Deloitte Consulting & Oracle Join to Serve Health Care Industry
Deloitte Consulting will expand its current alliance with Oracle Corporation to provide leading edge information management solutions to the health care industry using the ASP hosting model supported by Oracle.
Oracle and Deloitte Consulting expect that this new model will benefit both patient and provider by lowering costs of entry and enhancing data collection processing. Specifically, the new Internet-enabled Clinical Transaction Based (CTB) technology—developed by Oracle and brought to the industry with Deloitte Consulting—will organize reusable clinical information that will be key in developing decision-support applications integral in the clinical workflow.
"Deloitte Consulting and Oracle have worked together successfully in other industries and we are pleased to extend the Deloitte Consulting/Oracle alliance into the health care market. We believe our new solution will enable major health care organizations to take their systems to the front-line care provider," said Larry Neiterman, Global Director of the Deloitte Consulting Health Care Practice.
Voice of the Editor
Which isn’t completely true. I mean, occasionally I drop by when I manage to sneak out of the nonstop frat party over at Going Concern, but I’m mostly a wallflower over there. I’m happy to say that I’ve been given express permission (or explicit orders, if you like) to wander over here to AccountingWEB more often.
Why is that, you might ask? My job is to replace the irreplaceable Gail Perry as Editor-in-Chief. What does that mean? I don’t really know! I think it’ll be fun getting a feel for things, throwing in my own thoughts here and there, and listening to the discussions you’re having about the accounting profession.
