SAP India to Rehabilitate 1Bn Cancer Patients along with a Major Cancer Research NGO

one billion lives SAP SE has lately pledged an initiative to touch one billion lives in the Asia Pacific Japan (APJ) region by the year 2020. On the heels of this employee-led, crowdsourced initiative – SAP India has adopted the cause of bettering cancer research in the country.

Completing two decades in the country, SAP India announces their collaboration with the Ramesh Nimmagadda Cancer Foundation (RNCF), an NGO focused on cancer data research. RNCF provides its custom made data collection software OncoCollect, to institutions across India and also assists them with resources such as hardware, and manpower.

“At SAP, everything we do is guided by our vision to help the world run better and improve people’s lives,” said Deb Deep Sengupta, President and Managing Director, SAP Indian Subcontinent. “Together with RNCF, we aim to speed up data collection and analysis for better cancer treatment for patients in India and make a significant social impact in the country. I am confident that as we move towards a cloud economy, initiatives such as 1BLives will help India rise economically, socially and digitally, while technology will help address many of the gaps.”

The joint initiative aims to improve cancer treatment leveraging the capabilities of SAP Medical Research Insights and SAP Connected Health platform powered by SAP HANA that expedites data extraction, computation and visualization to convert patient data into meaningful insights including Predictive Analytics. The project aims to maximize patient outcomes for populations in India and throughout the region. Amazon Web Services (AWS) has joined SAP in this cause and will host the SAP Healthcare solutions and RNCF Software.

Basavatarakam Indo American Cancer Hospital & Research Institute, Hyderabad, and Rajiv Gandhi Cancer Institute and Research Centre, New Delhi, are the first two hospitals in the country to have come forward to be part of this effort. The project already has pilot data from 50,000 patients and is expected to produce ground-breaking research insights in the battle against cancer to benefit patients in India.

Talking about how this technologically-driven research will help Indian healthcare, Dr. Ramesh B V Nimmagadda, Managing Trustee, Ramesh Nimmagadda Cancer Foundation said, “Indian patients react differently to some drug regimens and exhibit more side effects and low tolerance while some of the diseases behave differently based on the ethnicity. I am excited to be a part of the team that gets to work on innovative technologies like SAP Connected Health platform and SAP Medical Research Insights, powered by SAP HANA, to integrate real world datasets, and give the user – a researcher or clinician – the freedom to perform analysis and gain insights from data to arrive at optimal treatment under the given local conditions.”

This initiative asserts to not only showcase SAP’s commitment to healthcare in the APJ region, but also aligns with their global pledge and the CEO, Bill McDermott’s vision to revolutionize healthcare industry.
