UW Health taps Oracle as its new cloud provider

Madison, Wis.-based UW Health selected Oracle's integrated suite of cloud applications to replace its 20-year legacy systems, the health system said Aug. 1.

Oracle will host applications for human resources, supply chain management and enterprise resource planning as a way to increase business agility across UW Health, streamline care delivery and improve patient outcomes. UW Health sees more than 600,000 patients each year across its seven hospitals and 87 outpatient clinics.

"Technology and regulations have accelerated the rate of change in the healthcare industry and our legacy business systems were struggling to keep up," Elizabeth Bolt, senior vice president and COO at UW Health, said in a news release. "To ensure we could continue to deliver the best quality services as we grow, we needed agile systems that can quickly turn data into insight."
