It’s been too long since I last had a chance to write about SAP’s efforts in Precision Medicine, so here an update with some latest highlights.

This week, SAP completed its yearly SAP SAPPHIRE NOW event, during which Jon Reed executed two great video interviews with Kevin Fitzpatrick from CancerLinQ (of the American Society of Clinical Oncology), and with Daryl Waggot and Dr. Euan Ashley from the Stanford Center for Inherited Cardiovascular Disease.


You should also be aware of the 2016, July 6th & 7th “SAP Personalized Medicine Forum” that will take place in Bonn, Germany. You can register here. This event will include several high-ranked speakers and exciting panel discussions and we expect more than one hundred participants from many different industries and institutes.


Oxford Economics has published an intriguing study about precision medicine. Among the key findings:

1.   Early results are promising, and aspirations are high

2.   A new approach to healthcare demands meaningful adjustments to culture and governance.

3.   Technology is at the heart of the shift to personalized medicine.

4.   While business models are not fully developed, the economic case for personalized medicine is maturing.

Read the details in the document.

 

I have reported about the great opportunities for companies to partner with SAP in Precision Medicine. This recorded webinar offers quick insights into SAP’s Precision Medicine approach and the applicable partnering options. One highlight is our ongoing partnership with DELL (see the press release) and Intel.

A dramatic health-related revolution is taking place affecting multiple industries such as Healthcare, Life Sciences, Public Sector, Higher Education, Insurance and Consumer Products. Empowered by automated diagnosis and treatment options, combined with better access to information, today’s patients are taking charge of their healthcare experience. They expect medical decisions and products to be tailored to their specific needs, so that they can live full and healthy lives.

 

As SAP continues to extend its portfolio in Personalized Medicine (learn more about key products below) and to serve its customers with solutions that improve patient outcomes, more partners are interested in joining us on this interesting journey.

 

I mentioned in this blogpost that SAP Personalized Medicine offers opportunities to partners across all dimensions: Build, Service, Run or Sell. Here useful new resources that you may want to check out:

 

For SAP partners - TWO events in the next weeks!

  • If your company is already part of the SAP ecosystem (aka if you have a "s-user") you will want to register for this April 13 webinar.
  • If you are joining SAPPHIRE NOW in Orlando (May 17-19), make sure to register for the May 16 SAP Partner Summit, and to visit our Personalized Medicine pod on site. Naturally, Personalized Medicine experts will also be on site at SAPPHIRE NOW.

Interested in joining the SAP ecosystem? Recorded webcast now available

  • If your organization does not yet have any agreement with SAP, but you would like to team up with SAP in Personalized Medicine, this recorded webinar offers insights (a quick registration is needed to be able to access this recording).

SAP is supporting the health revolution with SAP HANA and SAP HANA Cloud based solutions, a rapidly growing portfolio of Personalized Medicine products. SAP HANA by itself can already help to deliver superior, and lower-costing care, as shown by this example from the Seoul National University Bundang. In addition, SAP HANA is being used today to speed up basic research. See this blogpost on the Stanford School of Medicine. The digitizing of Cervix Cancer Screening helps women in Kenya in prevention and vaccination. Taking it one step further, the American Society of Clinical Oncology’s CancerLinq and the National Center for Tumor Diseases Heidelberg use SAP Foundation for Health and SAP Medical Research Insights to improve patient outcomes. The third solution in SAP’s Personalized Medicine portfolio was recently released: SAP Health Engagement takes bold steps to drive connected care, - example Roche.

SAP HANA, is a flexible, multi-purpose in-memory data management and application platform that has completely transformed the relational database industry. SAP HANA has already been adopted by global health and medical organizations (and thousands of other institutions) worldwide. Enter: Personalized Medicine. The healthcare sector alone creates 30 percent of the world’s data – most of that data is unattainable, underutilized, and disconnected. SAP, and its partners, are uniquely positioned to unlock the value of that data to help advance patient outcomes.

SAP Foundation for Health uses the functionalities of SAP HANA, and provides a flexible and extensible clinical data warehouse model, industry aware data integration management, and real-time analytics on large-scale structured and unstructured data. Unlike traditional data warehouses enabling software platforms, SAP Foundation for Health comes with built-in services to facilitate better diagnosis and care. It provides an open and secure platform for genomics, patient cohort building and further care collaboration solutions developed by SAP and partners. SAP Medical Research Insights is the first application delivered on SAP Foundation for Health.

The SAP Foundation for Health platform offers a unique opportunity for companies that would like to partner with SAP. SAP PartnerEdge is the umbrella partner program that offers a transparent framework with standard processes and contracts to engage with SAP in a very effective way. Partnering options include:

In addition, partners can also use the COIL (Co-Innovation Lab) approach – COIL facilitates project-based co-innovation with partners and customers through an integrated network of world-wide expertise, and best-in-class technologies and platforms.

All companies interested in joining SAP in this highly exciting field should investigate the offers above.LS_SAP_275956_h_ergb_s_gl.jpg

I had a chance to speak to Marten Neubauer of the Healthcare and Life Science unit at Dell’s Global SAP Center of Excellence.

 

Marten, can you explain why Dell is interested in Personalized Medicine ?

 

Dell has a long track-record serving the health industry with more than 13,000 of its employees devoted to the vertical. And there is this very personal engagement of Michael and Susan Dell. Their non-profit Michael & Susan Dell Foundation has funded children's health-related causes worldwide and they have supported initiatives such as the Dell Children's Medical Center of Central Texas. The Children’s Blood & Cancer Center (CBCC) is part of that institute and is the largest pediatric hematology/oncology provider in Central Texas.

 

So, Dell realized that technologies like big data and high performance computing hold a great promise for emerging areas such as genomics and can make a real impact on patient outcomes. One example is that Dell has been able to partner with the Translational Genomics Research Institute (TGen) and Intel to help doctors analyze and store massive amounts of genetic data more quickly than ever before.

 

Can you describe what Dell and SAP are doing jointly in Personalized Medicine?

 

To cure cancer, the analysis of genomes and genome variants is just one piece of the puzzle. The next important step is to interpret all the patient-related information. We became aware of SAP’s activities in Personalized Medicine very early. SAP Medical Research Insights and SAP Foundation for Health are two powerful tools to help medical researchers to obtain deep insights into all types of data. To tell the truth, it was a no-brainer for our companies to join forces. Consequently, we are currently partnering with SAP and Intel to investigate how to optimize the supporting infrastructure. Jointly we are designing a reference architecture for these two products, that will deliver a blueprint for a software/hardware combination. You could say that it is like a best practice deployment, that we also intend to use for performance benchmarking.

 

How do customers benefit from this?

 

Time is a critical factor for cancer patients! As with TGen our aim is to provide an optimized and standardized implementation that unites highly complex data sets, and to help define how to do this most efficiently. This will help our customers to start using these solutions more quickly, and to get the most out of their functionality. Our joint aim is that in the end this will translate into faster results for patients. The system is not live yet, but we are progressing rapidly with a dedicated taskforce encompassing specialists from the three companies (Dell, SAP and Intel). So stay tuned!

 

Where can customers find more information?

 

Dell, Intel and SAP will each have booths at HIMSS (Las Vegas, February 29- March 4, 2016), so that is one way to learn more on site from all three partners at that very exciting event. In addition, anyone interested in this system can contact the Global SAP Center of Excellence at Dell, we are happy to provide more details and live demos. Or reach out to the two of us directly – but that goes without saying.

 

Marten, many thanks for the information !

SAP HANA; with its unique capabilities for advanced and high speed analytics, is the tool of choice for biomedical research. In this field, large numbers of data need to be sliced and diced, so that researcher can build and validate new research hypotheses, ultimatetly leading to optimized care. In addition, SAP is also active in other areas in personal medicine, and also with partners. Some of the examples:
