Health sciences organizations are focused on realizing the promise of personalized medicine in their quest to develop more effective and efficient treatments for some of the world’s most complex diseases. UPMC is using Oracle Health Sciences solutions as a key part of the foundation for its five-year, $100 million healthcare analytics initiative, which is yielding important insights into breast cancer just months after its launch.
News Facts
UPMC, a $10 billion integrated global health enterprise headquartered in Pittsburgh, deployed Oracle Health Sciences solutions to power its enterprise healthcare analytics initiative launched in late 2012.

The initiative is bringing together clinical, genomic, financial, administrative and operational data from more than 200 sources from within UPMC, its health plan and other entities to drive more personalized care and better patient outcomes.

Using Oracle Health Sciences Translational Research Center, UPMC researchers recently integrated and analyzed clinical and genomic information from internal systems as well as from public domain data sources, such as The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA).

This work identified genes and pathways unique to pre- and post-menopausal breast cancer. While fully understanding those differences requires additional research, the findings may lead to an ability to change the way patients are treated based on their age.

UPMC uses Oracle Exadata Database Machine as the hardware foundation for its analytical environment and is benefitting from the engineered solution’s unmatched scalability, performance and return on investment.

Supporting Quotes
“Just eight months into our five-year healthcare analytics initiative, using Oracle Health Sciences Translational Research Center, we were able to identify molecular differences in breast cancers that may lead to new breakthroughs in treatments and outcomes moving forward. This early insight fuels our excitement about the potential of this important healthcare analytics initiative,” said Steven D. Shapiro, M.D., chief medical and scientific officer of UPMC.

“The ability of health sciences organizations, like UPMC, to now fully use the vast quantities of clinical, genetic, molecular and operational data available to drive new insights is key to advancing personalized medicine,” said Kris Joshi, vice president, Oracle Health Sciences. “Oracle, through its health sciences applications and core technologies, is honored to be part of UPMC’s ground-breaking healthcare analytics initiative.”
