The President of the Government of Catalonia, Pere Aragonès i Garcia, today opened the new Oracle Health Support Hub, dedicated to digitalisation in the field of health. The head of the Government celebrated "Oracle's commitment to Catalonia with the announcement of this new centre", which, he said "will contribute to opening up new opportunities for collaboration and well-being and prosperity for all citizens"."We are proud that Catalonia is one of the most dynamic ecosystems with the greatest potential in research, innovation and technology in the field of health in Europe," he said.
In this regard, Pere Aragonès noted that, according to the innovation ranking drawn up by the European Commission, "in the last two years Catalonia has climbed 27 positions, an absolutely extraordinary level of change, something that has been possible in only 2% of EU territories". And he added that this is the case because "there has been a significant improvement in business investment, such as that of Oracle", and because "there has been greater public investment, such as that carried out by the Government of Catalonia, in the area of training and research and in support for businesses".
The head of the Government also emphasised that "the digitalisation of society is a strategic commitment that we have undertaken as a country, also in the field of health sciences and in the area of public health services as a whole”. And he added that this represents new opportunities that "contribute to improving the quality of healthcare for the citizens of Catalonia". "New opportunities such as the 60 new high-level jobs it will incorporate", he concluded.
With the new Oracle Health Support Hub, the company will be able to better meet the needs of its European customers in modernising their healthcare systems to help improve outcomes and patient care. The more than 60 professionals who will be working there will focus on providing guidance for customers in the design of their systems, helping to prevent incidents and reduce recovery times. The inaugural event also featured the Executive Vice President and Global General Manager of Oracle Health, Travis Dalton.
