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.
