Together with its partner ecosystem, SAP wants to improve the way that care providers manage patients while they are outside of the healthcare system and active in the community. For example, SAP and its partners are integrating glucometers into the SAP solution. As the devices capture clinical data, alerts can be generated in real time to patients via text message or e-mail to prompt them to take the necessary actions. Care providers can also be alerted to patient-specific criteria, such as when a patient’s glucose crosses a predetermined level.

With the SAP technology, patients will be able to use mobile devices to track their health status, interact with care providers and monitor how they are progressing on an individualized care plan developed with their care provider. Patients can also take targeted "e-classes" to learn how to better manage their health.

Making Patient and Provider Collaboration Easier

SAP Collaborative E-Care Management makes coordination of care among patients, their healthcare providers and their families easier. The technology allows patients to incorporate wellness, chronic condition management, interim care and post-acute care into their overall healthcare plan from wherever integrated telecommunication capabilities are available. Patients can choose to share information stored in their personal health record (PHR) through the use of an "in community" feature to let providers more seamlessly tailor specific.

The application can interact with medical monitoring devices to automatically capture patient clinical information. Integrated telecommunication capabilities allow ¬†interested parties such as friends and family members to be notified regarding changes in a patient’s healthcare status via text messages, e-mail, work list, telephone and video. The application also provides analysis of patient data to help ensure continuous refinement and improved management of care as well as evaluate quality and cost. In addition, patients benefit from e-learning capabilities to supplement education provided in the physician’s office, reinforce behavioral changes, and support informed decision-making
