SAPPHIRE NOW 2014: Run Simple in Healthcare
“Simplify everything, so we can do anything.”
The theme for SAP SAPPHIRE NOW 2014 in one word: simple, a theme that is more relevant for healthcare today than ever before. Healthcare providers today are overwhelmed by data and they need simple tools to integrate systems and retrieve actionable insights from this data.
At SAPPHIRE I had the pleasure of interviewing a physician, a geneticist, and healthcare IT professionals on how they are leveraging SAP technology. Each of these conversations revolved around the complexity of healthcare and how SAP is helping them beat this complexity.
MemorialCare Health System
With SAP BusinessObjects and SAP HANA, MemorialCare Health System is able to simplify and streamline analytics. With integrated systems and best in class tools, Memorial Care can confidently understand their existing payers and patients.
Hear from Dan Exley Executive Director of Data Strategy and Reporting at MemorialCare Health System.
Stanford University is using HANA to analyze large amounts of genomic data to better understand the global human genome variation and its implications. Once complicated genomic data is simplified and the information becomes actionable, healthcare is improved and medicine becomes personalized.
Dr. Carlos Bustamante from Stanford University talks genome sequencing with SAP HANA:
Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center
Dartmouth is focused on improving the health of the population and helping patients choose wisely. They are committed to help patients understand their options and how to choose the best care. Dartmouth leverages technology to help coordinate the process of care to allow patients to get more involved in their own recovery.
In this interview Dr. Sohail Mirza Chair of Orthopedics at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center shares firsthand how Dartmouth is leveraging technology.
Brain Injury Association of America
The mission of the Brain Injury Association of America (BIAA) is to advance brain injury prevention, research, treatment and education and to improve the quality of life for all people affected by brain injury. They are using the SAP CareCircles mobile application to help care givers such as parents and doctors to stay informed and act as an integrated team to make the most informed decisions.
The goal of any hospital is to provide quality care; this goal requires simplified, streamline processes. With advanced technology, SAP is helping healthcare providers to reach their goal to provide best in class patient care.
