News Facts  


 
--  To expand its medical information services and offerings, MedicAlert
    Foundation, a global nonprofit organization, has adopted the Oracle
    E-Business Suite 12.1, Oracle Business Intelligence Applications,
    Oracle Master Data Management and Oracle Customer Relationship
    Management.
--  MedicAlert Foundation provides emergency medical information and
    identification services about its members to emergency medical and law
    enforcement personnel through its innovative, reliable MedicAlert ID
    solution.
--  To meet member demand for new ways to leverage critical information
    and services, MedicAlert needed to replace its rigid legacy system
    with a modern business platform that could optimize the management of
    financial and customer information.
--  After a competitive search of vendors, MedicAlert determined only
    Oracle could deliver the functional and technical requirements to
    seamlessly integrate its internal Emergency Medical Information Record
    (EMIR) system and customer-facing operations into a single, secure
    platform. MedicAlert selected Oracle applications to replace several
    disparate business systems including a legacy Microsoft Great Plains
    for Financials and a homegrown system for call center and
    manufacturing operations.
--  Working with Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN) Platinum-level member DAZ
    Systems, and leveraging Oracle Business Accelerators, MedicAlert
    implemented the Oracle E-Business Suite 12.1 including Financials,
    Oracle Order Management, Oracle Discrete Manufacturing, Oracle
    Purchasing, and Oracle CRM, in less than seven months, five months
    faster than anticipated.
--  Oracle Business Accelerators are powerful, cloud-based rapid
    implementation tools that dramatically reduce the time and effort
    required for project scoping, solution design, configuration, and
    testing. Oracle Business Accelerators incorporate leading industry
   
 practices and are available through Oracle's approved partner channel
    and Oracle Consulting groups.
--  With its new technology platform and the assistance of eVerge Group, a
    Platinum-level member of Oracle PartnerNetwork, MedicAlert has been
    able to open up new business opportunities and extend partnerships by
    having consolidated, authoritative information that provides a single
    view to accurate information between its EMIR and its CRM applications
    through Oracle Master Data Management (MDM) which includes Oracle
    Customer Hub.
--  In addition, by leveraging Oracle Enterprise Data Quality MedicAlert
    has improved the quality, consistency and relevance of underlying
    data, providing greater value for analytics and reporting insights
    through Oracle Business Intelligence.
--  Lastly, by storing sensitive medical information in Oracle CRM,
    MedicAlert can more easily meet critical regulations around privacy
    and security, including HIPAA requirements.
