Grid Control and possibly Dbcontrol have a mechanism to connect to Oracle Configuration manager (at Oracle) and two download automatically info about all new patches which apply to you, according to your configuration, as tracked by Oracle. Automatic installation is possible.
When you have the correct modules this will extend to O/S patches and upgrades.
