IHH Healthcare (IHH) has migrated its workloads to Oracle's cloud offerings.

The healthcare provider's Singapore operations will be moved to Oracle Exadata Database Service on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI), while IHH Malaysia has opted to migrate to Oracle Exadata Cloud@Customer, one of Oracle's on-premise cloud solutions.

IHH has more than 80 hospitals across 10 countries, including Singapore and Malaysia, and has "massive" amounts of data that need to be managed securely.

IHH Singapore has migrated its "core application workloads," including electronic medical records used by more than 5,000 members of staff, its enterprise data warehouse, and laboratory information systems.

IHH Malaysia instead opted to consolidate and migrate its database workloads, such as patient management system, appointment booking system, lab information, and billings to Oracle Exadata Cloud@Customer to meet data residency requirements.

Linus Tham, group chief information officer, IHH Healthcare, said: "With the support of Oracle Exadata Database Service on the Exadata platform in Singapore and Malaysia, we are able to leverage cloud benefits while complying with local regulatory requirements.

"This migration marks a significant step towards establishing a unified digital healthcare ecosystem, crucial for dismantling data silos, and enhancing data analytics capabilities for our physicians. By alleviating administrative burdens, our physicians can dedicate more attention to patient care. This also aligns with our strategy to use innovative technologies such as AI to deliver world-class healthcare services."

IHH Singapore previously migrated more than 100 servers to AWS EC2 instances with AsiaPac.

IHH Healthcare is majority-owned by Mitsui, followed by the Malaysian Government's sovereign wealth fund Khazanah Nasional, and Citigroup. A further stake is owned by the Employees Provident Fund of Malaysia.
