SAP SE announced SAP Foundation for Health and the SAP Medical Research Insights solutions built on the SAP HANA platform to realize the full potential of personalized medicine.
By unlocking patient data and uncovering insights in real time, the new solutions reveal the value of patient data, from biomedical data to EMRs to clinical trials. They facilitate data integration and provide real-time analysis and reporting that together lead to improved personalized medicine and patient care.
SAP Foundation for Health Overview
SAP Foundation for Health provides a flexible and extensible clinical data warehouse model, industry-focused data integration management and real-time, advanced analytics on large-scale structured and unstructured data. With SAP Foundation for Health, life sciences companies and healthcare organizations are able to:
– Develop and target new drugs, devices and services to populations and individuals
– Use an open and secure platform for real-time, flexible R&D analysis, genomics and other “omics” disciplines, patient cohort building and analysis, patient trial matching and extended care collaboration solutions developed by SAP and partners

ASCO, SAP Develop CancerLinQ
The American Society of Clinical Oncology’s (ASCO) wholly owned nonprofit subsidiary, CancerLinQ LLC, is working with SAP to develop CancerLinQ, one of the only major cancer-data initiatives developed by physicians with the primary purpose of improving patient care. CancerLinQ is a health information technology platform that will harness Big Data from millions of de-identified patient records to deliver high-quality, personalized care to people with cancer and cancer survivors. Doctors are expected to receive personalized insights like never before, and patients will have better access to high-quality care based on the most up-to-date insights and findings.
NCT and SAP Codevelop SAP Medical Research Insights
The National Center for Tumor Diseases (NCT) delivers patient care, cancer research, and cancer prevention. The old system required medical staff to search multiple databases, compile patient lists, print patient files and manually check if patients matched criteria for clinical trials by reviewing each file individually. This made accessing and analyzing patient data an extremely complex and time-consuming process. To simplify and streamline the process, NCT and SAP codeveloped SAP Medical Research Insights — a solution based on SAP Foundation for Health that allows fast, easy and secure access to patient data and comparison of patient profiles from various sources.
