SAP Design and Heidelberg University Hospital join forces to fight cervical cancer

World Cancer Day

Date:  2 February 2017 to 9 February 2017

We are proud to support this year’s #WorldCancerDay. SAP Design and Heidelberg University Hospital are committed to support the UN’s global goal of good health and well being by improving research and treatment of cancer through the power of design, applied medical research and IT.

Cervical cancer is the second most common cause of death for women worldwide and ranks #1 in Kenya. Although it is easily preventable, most eligible women have never been screened and have no access to healthcare resources. Heidelberg University Hospital piloted the Emerging Technologies in Cervical Cancer Screening (ETiCCS) test during a one-year study with 800 women at the Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital in Eldoret Kenya. SAP Design joined the Heidelberg University Hospital to digitize the recruiting, screening and examination process of ETiCCS by applying Design Thinking and latest cloud technology.

Healthcare and IT joined forces to significantly accelerate and simplify the screening approach in fragile infrastructures. The first project started with a cervical cancer screening study in Eldoret, Kenya.
