Complex business models, combined with
immense pressure to deliver great patient
experiences and outcomes, has African
healthcare providers turning to technology
to improve their operational efficiency and
automate back-office operations.
This task is now far less daunting with
the launch of a new technology platform
designed by Converge Solutions and the
SAP Co-Innovation Lab specifically for the
African healthcare market.
“Healthcare providers are under increasing
pressure to deliver improved patient
experiences and streamline their operations
with mounting financial constraints,” said
Johann Joubert, CEO at Converge Solutions.
“The answer to affordable, improved
patient care is not always more staff,
controls or administrative processes, but
greater adoption of technology that aids
automates and simplifies, allowing more
effective use of available resources.
“Modern healthcare organisations simply
cannot function optimally without applying
technology as a key enabler of their
operations. In light of this, we co-developed
an innovative, modern SAP IS-H and Cerner
i.s.h.med offering to create a fit-for-purpose
solution for the African healthcare market.”
Converge Solutions is a SAP partner
organisation that develops innovative
solutions for African organisations in the
healthcare and financial services industries.
The healthcare solution was developed
partly through a co-innovation exercise held
in collaboration with the SAP Co-Innovation
Lab, a global network of SAP product and
innovation labs found in 16 locations
