SAP Design and Heidelberg University Hospital join forces to fight cervical cancer
World Cancer Day
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.
