I have 7 years of IT experience with 3+ year in healthcare. Currently I am working for NHS-National Healthcare Services u2013UK.
I have functional & domain experience of healthcare but not in SAP. I do not have any healthcare certification. My core skill is in Microsoft (web base technology and data base). I am interested to build my career in SAP healthcare.
Can I start my career in SP healthcare without SAP knowledge ? Where I can find SAP healthcare job ?
I appreciate your advice in this regards.
To get a first overview of opportunities at SAP and how to apply please have a look [here|http://www.sap.com/careers/index.epx]. Depending of the type of job you can of course start without specific SAP knowlegde, although in many cases such skill might be an advantage.
Claudius - Thanks for your reply.
If I am going to start career with SAP Healthcare without having knowledge of it..
Can you please advice me what job description or role I have to search. I request you to suggest job links for it. I tried to search such job on google but it seems to be very limited.
Can you please inform me starting point to get knowledge & experience of SAP Healthcare?
Is SAP the best choice for a ERP Health care career?
I think it really depends on where you wanted to start:
Development, Marketing, Consulting, Product Management, Sales, Pre-Sales etc.
For job opportunities I would use the Job Search on the country-specific SAP web site or other specific job web sites.
A starting point to get knowledge could be the material you'll find on our [Healthcare web site|http://www.sap.com/industries/healthcare/index.epx]. Or look at the documentation of our products - you'll find links in the respective threads here.
Regarding you last question: I may have a biased view, but I'd say who else... )
Thanks for quick reply.
I want to start as SAP healthcare consultant.
I understood IS-H module is specific for health industries but you can suggest me modules appreciated by healthcare industries & countries.
I am interested to know your view for SAP Heaclthcare opprtunity and future.
Customers from the Healthcare industry worldwide are using our Business Suite as well as the healthcare-specific extension of SAP ERP called SAP Patient Management (IS-H) as well as the technology stack NetWeaver. Again, I think our web site provides a good overview of 1) our capabilities and b) customer examples for various of our solutions. Make sure to visit [http://www.sap.com/industries/healthcare/solutions.epx|http://www.sap.com/industries/healthcare/solutions.epx].
This is my last query.
Can you please share your opinion for SAP healthcare opportunity and future.
I am also interested to know the region/country which appreciate IS-H (Patient Management) modules. I am sure the module must target to specific geographic/region.
Thanks for all your support.
SAP Patient Management is truly a global solution, of course the country-specifics (e.g. billing rules or other legal requirements) are covered in what we call country-versions which can be activated through configuration settings. My [blog|https://www.sdn.sap.com/irj/sdn/weblogs?blog=/pub/wlg/6329] gives you some more details on the countries as well a [sample list of our world wide customers|http://www.sap.com/industries/healthcare/customersuccess/customerreference.epx].
I am very positive on the future outlook for SAP for Healthcare )
