Today, more than ever, the healthcare industry has relied on technology including COVID-19 contact-tracing, providing a stable medical supply chain, and adapting telehealth as well as remote monitoring of patients. To help the industry become a resilient and intelligent enterprise during these trying times, SAP TechTalk will be hosting a three-part webinar series to be held weekly from 19 August to 3 September.
Martin Burger, SAP’s Healthcare Go-To-Market Lead for Asia Pacific and China shared:
“In the past, hospitals never got the attention and budgets they deserve.”
Burger explained that the hospitals’ current finance system including funding approvals could be better with a sustainable solution. He said:
“Once the situation normalises, hospitals will have to check their finances.”
Hospitals have to closely monitor their costs, understand exactly where costs occur and what options there are to reduce costs or optimise them, without compromising quality of care,” he added.
