Every year, 500,000 women worldwide are newly diagnosed with cervical cancer. To help prevent this disease, Heidelberg University Hospital developed a project using a biomarker that would help determine if a woman infected with HPV was at risk for developing cancer, enabling early, life-saving treatment for that woman. But reaching women in developing countries to screen them for cancer was a challenge. Learn how Heidelberg University Hospital, in conjunction with SAP’s Design and Co-Innovation Center, built a mobile app on SAP Cloud Platform that enabled the research group to test underprivileged women for cancer and, ultimately, save lives.
