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
REDWOOD SHORES, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/07/14 -- Oracle (NYSE:
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.
-- 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
-- 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
-- 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
-- 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.
-- "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."
