Powered by Dell PowerEdge servers, the architecture allows organizations to deploy SAP Foundation for Health quickly and confidently, delivering personalized care through actionable insights.
SAP Foundation for Health breaks down data silos and enables real-time analysis of vast volumes of medical data from diverse sources—in a single system. SAP Foundation for Health brings together:
• Clinical and personal data from electronic medical records and other sources, including unstructured information such as clinical case notes
• Genomic and other biological data
• Data from the Internet of Things (IoT) generated by medical devices, personal health devices, and more
Curtis Dudley, vice president of Performance Solutions, Mercy, : “Few industries are undergoing more change than healthcare with new treatments, advanced equipment, enhanced health insurance and exploding costs. Our goal is to provide the best care to our patients, while controlling costs, by becoming a data-driven business. With SAP HANA and SAP BusinessObjects™ business intelligence (BI) solutions, we were able to rapidly analyze vast amounts of data to save US$9 million in supply costs and improve operating room block utilization by 12 percent, while improving the outcome of procedures and patient experience” said
