In this Cloud Wars Expo Moment, excerpted from the main stage fireside chat, Bob Evans and Oracle Executive Vice President of Vertical Industries Mike Sicilia discuss the ways in which Oracle’s acquisition of Cerner has provided new ways of thinking about healthcare.
00:20 — The Cerner acquisition was a huge advancement for Oracle.
00:42 — Patients and providers have been underserved for years in the healthcare industry. Providers spend two hours with a system for every hour they spend with a patient.
01:02 — Someone in the healthcare space needs to find a solution to fix this issue; Oracle recognizes its work in this as more than just a business but as a moral obligation.
01:11 — Without a large asset in a company, the problem is hard to fix. Therefore, acquiring Cerner has made improving systems more achievable for the team at Oracle.
01:31 — Sicilia believes that there is a need to inject more technology into the healthcare space.
01:57 — The Cerner acquisition has made Oracle think about industry clouds differently and has more consideration for industry functionality.
02:31 — Oracle is an ecosystem that works with lots of other partners to optimize the healthcare world, an approach that Sicilia says is like going to market with ecosystem play. He concludes by stating that these opportunities have created different ways of thinking about healthcare.
