Oracle America, Oregon Settle Cover Oregon Lawsuits for $100 Million

After more than two years of battling in court, Oregon and Oracle America settled all litigation related to the Cover Oregon fiasco for $100 million. Gov. Kate Brown and Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum announced the global settlement of multiple lawsuits related to the defunct health insurance exchange. The $100 million includes cash payments and a six-year Unlimited License Agreement for products and services to modernize state government IT systems. The settlement is far less than the approximately $6 billion the state was demanding in its lawsuit against Oracle, but more than a $25 million settlement the two sides allegedly reached but that blew up last year. Oracle, which was the state's IT contractor on Cover Oregon, will also make a $10 million grant to the Oregon Communication Foundation to fund STEM education initiatives in Oregon K-12 schools. Brown also lauded the settlement as a boon to STEM education and an end to a tumultuous chapter. Just last week, attorneys for Oracle and Oregon were in Marion County Circuit Court arguing over whether Oracle had the right to depose Brown about what she knew about an oral agreement to settle the suits last year. Oracle contends Brown's then-chief of staff, Brian Shipley, and Oracle Senior Vice President Ken Glueck agreed to a $25 million settlement deal. But Rosenblum said only she has the authority to settle. Oracle sued to enforce the alleged settlement, prompting Brown's spokeswoman to call it a "desperate legal stunt." Technical problems with Cover Oregon came to light the day it debuted, October 1, 2013. After problems persisted for months, the state opted to scrap the exchange and instead use the federal website, HealthCare.gov. In August 2014, Oracle sued Oregon for breach of contract, later amended to include copyright infringement. Rosenblum fired back about two weeks later with a fraud and racketeering suit against Oracle. More lawsuits ensued, as each side blamed the other. Oracle said the state mishandled the project from the beginning and erred by not hiring a system integrator to oversee the work. Oracle also contended politics inappropriately interfered in the state's decision making, as former Gov. John Kitzhaber's political consultants had significant influence over the decision to scrap the exchange. Oregon accused Oracle of misrepresentations, errors and incompetence.

State Loses Round in Oracle Settlement Suit

A judge has, for a second time, refused to dismiss Oracle America's lawsuit seeking to enforce an alleged settlement of all litigation pertaining to the failed Cover Oregon health insurance website. That means the case could be heading to trial November 14, ahead of the main litigation over who was to blame for the technical issues that beset the IT project. Oracle contends Gov. Kate Brown's former chief of staff entered into an oral agreement with an Oracle executive to settle the half dozen lawsuits for $25 million, which would help support STEM education and technology. The settlement lawsuit is one of several spawned by the failure of Cover Oregon two years ago. Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum had asked that the settlement suit be dismissed, which Marion County Circuit Judge Sean Armstrong denied last week. She has taken issue with the notion that the parties agreed to settle the litigation, calling the settlement-enforcement lawsuit frivolous. Rosenbum contends only she has the authority to settle the cases, a position Armstrong earlier struck down. Armstrong last week ordered the deposition of Misha Isaak, deputy General Counsel to Brown. He also ordered the state to produce a declaration from Brown addressing her personal knowledge of the settlement. Armstrong will hold a hearing on September 8 to discuss whether to order depositions of Brown and Rosenblum.

Cytta and Doctor Direct to Integrate with the Oracle Cloud/IoT Platform

Cytta Corp. and Doctor Direct Inc., have entered into an agreement, with Oracle America, Inc. The parties are integrating Cytta’s VeriSmartPhone(TM) technology with the Oracle Cloud/IoT platform for immediate utilization by Doctor Direct Inc. in the Healthcare remote medical monitoring marketplace. Cytta, and Doctor Direct Inc., will be utilizing Oracle Cloud/IoT functionality for all the data derived worldwide from the use of their proprietary VeriSmartPhone(TM) technology for remote medical monitoring. The agreement to partner with Oracle, gives Cytta and Doctor Direct a unified environment providing flexible cloud infrastructure, a powerful standards-based platform, and a comprehensive portfolio of business applications all of which are additive to Cytta’s VeriSmartPhone(TM) remote monitoring model. This Agreement also eliminates the need for Cytta to spend time and capital developing these services ourselves. Cytta will also be utilizing Oracle software in version 2.0 of the VeriSmartPhone’s (TM) proprietary android O/S software currently being designed. Oracle will now be supplying their Database platform including analytics, security and big data to the VeriSmartPhone(TM) model. The Cytta VeriSmartPhone (TM) based Doctor Direct remote medical monitoring technology consists of an ‘intelligent’ VeriSmartPhone (TM) android rooted control interface, which automatically receives and sends all Bluetooth remote medical monitoring data to the Oracle Cloud. And once analyzed at the Oracle Cloud, the data is sent on to the designated Doctor, nurse, caregiver recipients, creating two-way real time medical data, video and voice communication. Once the VeriSmartPhone (TM) receives the data from the medical peripherals, it reviews the data and decides to instigate communication via voice, video, SMS or email in real-time to the Oracle Cloud, and directly to the caregiver and back. Everything is accomplished without touching the VeriSmartPhone(TM). This provides patients with a low cost, 24/7, intelligent instantaneous automatic monitoring at any location at any time.
