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.
