Making Precision Medicine a Reality with SAP Healthcare and Mercy

In this Healthcare Scene interview, I sit down with Curtis Dudley and Dr. David Delaney to talk about their precision medicine work at Mercy using SAP HANA to improve quality outcomes and reduce delivery costs using perioperative analytics. We also dive into why Mercy chose to use a third party analytics software instead of their Epic EHR. Plus, we talk about where Mercy and SAP plan to take these healthcare analytics platforms next and how they plan to share the work they’ve done with other hospital systems. We know you’ll enjoy this look into precision medicine at work:

Here are a few more details for our panelists:

  • Curtis Dudley, Vice President of Performance Solutions at Mercy
  • David Delaney, MD is Chief Medical Officer of SAP Public Services and Healthcare Industries
  • John Lynn, Founder of HealthcareScene.com

In the “after party” we dove into more of the technical details of what’s required to roll out a healthcare analytics platform. We dug into Mercy’s approach to exporting data from their EHR and other data sources into SAP HANA and when they choose to just store pointers to the data instead of exporting all the data. We also talk about whether healthcare analytics is really available for the smaller health systems or if it really only works for larger health systems.

If you want to learn more about SAP’s work with Mercy hospital system, both Mercy and SAP Healthcare will be at HIMSS 2016.

SAP is uniquely positioned to help advance personalized medicine. The SAP Foundation for Health is built on the SAP Hana platform which provides scalable cloud analytics solutions across the spectrum of healthcare. SAP is a sponsor of Influential Networks of which Healthcare Scene is a member. You can learn more about SAP’s healthcare solutions during #HIMSS16 at Booth #5828.

Talking Genomic Medicine at #CES2016

I was lucky to moderate a panel at the Digital Health Summit at CES 2016. The session was called “Look Who’s Talking: Newborn Genomic Data Enables Precision Medicine” and I was joined by 2 amazing panelists:

  • Andy De, Global Managing Director and General Manager for Healthcare and Life Sciences at Tableau
  • Aaron Black, Director, Informatics, Inova Translational Medicine Institute

It’s amazing to see the work Andy and Aaron are doing with genomic medicine. It’s truly uncharted territory and we’re still discovering what’s going to be possible. However, I think we do a good job looking at some of the things that are reality today in genomic medicine.

Check out all of the healthcare IT conferences we attend throughout the year.

Are There Elements of Healthcare IT That Won’t Eventually Be On the Cloud?

I came across this video from Dell that looks at the Future of Healthcare and how cloud computing is working to transform healthcare. It’s a marketing video for Dell, but it brings up some interesting points about where healthcare IT is headed:

After watching the video, I asked myself the question that’s the title of this blog post: Are There Elements of Healthcare IT That Won’t Eventually Be On the Cloud?

I think the answer is no. I think it will also take healthcare a while to actually get fully on the cloud. However, it’s happening across every aspect of healthcare IT. Plus, there are going to be a number of healthcare IT innovations in the future that are only going to be cloud based. I think genomics and personalized medicine is the perfect example. Those innovations are going to both require cloud technology to make it a reality.

CareAware iAware® Explanation and Demonstration Video

This video presents a nice look at the abilities of Cerner’s CareAware iAware.  This system greatly improves the efficiency and quality of care that doctors can provide.  By bringing together information from numerous different apps, this program can bring all of that information together into one spot.

One of the really nice features is that the system can be customized to the needs of different users.  Doctors and nurses each have the ability to customize the software to provide the specific information that they need to do their job well.  This means that providers have exactly the information they need without the clutter of excess data.  By providing just the information that providers need decisions can be made more accurately and more efficiently.
