Erasmus University Medical Center Rotterdam Chooses Oracle to Support Genomic  Research and Advance Personalized Medicine  Healthcare Organization Accelerates Insights With Oracle Health Sciences Translational Research Center Running on Oracle Exadata Database Machine  REDWOOD SHORES, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/07/14 --  Oracle (NYSE: ORCL)  News Summary  As an institute at the forefront of patient-centered care and medical research, Netherlands-based Erasmus Medical Center Rotterdam (Erasmus MC) seeks to accelerate genomic research and advance personalized medicine. The academic medical center selected Oracle Health Sciences Translational Research Center running on Oracle Exadata Database Machine as the foundation for its next-generation genomics initiatives. The solution will help the medical center accelerate insight that will drive new treatments and improve patient outcomes.   News Facts      --  Erasmus MC, the largest university medical center in the Netherlands,     selected Oracle Health Sciences Translational Research Center to     support next-generation research initiatives to advance personalized     medicine and improve patient outcomes. --  Erasmus MC plans to use the solution, which enables researchers to     simultaneously analyze clinical and omics data, to reveal new     insights, such as the discovery and validation of new biomarkers,     which are expected to lead to more effective, personalized treatment     recommendations. --  The inaugural project will focus on improving care and outcomes for     patients with craniofacial malformations. The initiative will involve     whole genome sequencing for > 1000 patients. --  Subsequently, Erasmus MC expects to deploy the platform across the     enterprise, integrating clinical, operational and financial data to     accelerate diagnosis, improve care, and gain insight into     cost-effectiveness of specific treatments. --  Oracle Health Sciences Translational Research Center is a     comprehensive platform that normalizes, aggregates, controls, and     analyzes diverse clinical and molecular data to help researchers     identify new predictive biomarkers and rapidly find subjects with     similar clinical and omics characteristics to advance personalized     medicine. --  Erasmus MC selected Oracle Health Sciences Translational Research     Center because the organization believes it is ideally suited to     provide its clinicians with the ability to rapidly analyze genotypic     and phenotypic data from multiple internal and external sources at     scale, increasingly necessary as whole genome sequencing moves into     the clinic. --  Erasmus MC will run Oracle Health Sciences Translational Research     Center on Oracle Exadata Database Machine, which will help ensure     extreme performance on an enterprise-wide scale.     Supporting Quotes      --  "Oracle Health Sciences Translational Research Center -- and its     ability to simultaneously query clinical and omics data -- will be     vital to advancing our next-generational genomics research     initiatives," said Jan A. Hazelzet, CMIO, Erasmus MC. "As we expand     the deployment across our enterprise, the platform's centralized data     warehouse will enable in-depth analysis of patient outcomes and cost     of care from a single source of truth. We look forward to benefitting     from Oracle's innovative, secure and scalable solution." --  "Oracle is committed to helping health sciences organizations drive     innovation with solutions such as Oracle Health Sciences Translational     Research Center," said Jonathan Sheldon, PhD, Global Vice President,     Oracle Health Sciences. "The solution, running on Oracle Exadata     Database Machine will provide Erasmus MC with the ability to unlock     critical insight in its quest to advance personalized medicine."
