Oracle Health Sciences Translational Research Center 3.0 Helps Advance Personalized Medicine

Significant Genotypic and Phenotypic Analytic Capabilities Added in New Release

REDWOOD SHORES, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 01/07/14 -- Oracle (NYSE: ORCL)

News Summary

Clinical researchers are focused on advancing the secondary use of medical data across clinical and research organizations to unlock the true potential of personalized medicine. To support this goal, the latest release of Oracle Health Sciences Translational Research Center features expanded omics and clinical data models, new user interfaces and workflows for patient stratification and reporting, advanced analytical capabilities that facilitate the discovery of driver mutations, and enhanced role-based data access security, ultimately supporting accelerated insight needed to advance personalized medicine.

News Facts

  • Oracle Health Sciences today announced the availability of Oracle Health Sciences Translational Research Center 3.0, a platform that enables secondary use of electronic health records and omics data to help accelerate biomarker identification for drug discovery, clinical development and translational medicine.
  • Oracle approximately doubled the size of the omics and clinical data models in the newest release to lay a foundation for expanded insight and discovery.
    • The clinical data model now includes more than 70 major tables -- up from approximately 35 -- as well as many new attributes, such as medical encounters, treatment outcomes and patient's family medical histories.
    • The omics data model features approximately 50 new tables -- more than 100 total -- which support histology and mutation data from Catalog of Somatic Mutations in Cancer (COSMIC) and Human Gene Mutation Database (HGMD) data, as well as expanded structural variation.
  • With new support for multiple reference genomes, researchers can easily identify, track and analyze changes to a patient's genome over the disease lifecycle, in addition to comparing it to the reference.
  • The update also supports Genome Variant Call Format (GVCF), which is critical to bringing genome research to the clinical environment. The new capabilities enable a physician to more easily compare genome regions sequenced for a patient with the applicable reference.
  • Oracle Health Sciences Translational Research Center includes more than 20 new user interfaces (UIs) and workflows, as well as 30 enhanced UIs that expand concepts available for search and accelerate reporting and post-cohort analysis.
  • The newly introduced collaboration module enables users to share patient stratification criteria and other research findings with another user or a user group, and all of these functions can be achieved via the intuitive UI.
  • Advanced data-level security capabilities enable researches to expand collaboration while supporting the safety of their data.
