Digitizing Cervical Cancer Screening Results with SAP Cloud Platform

Cervical cancer is the second-most-common cancer in women living in less developed regions, but in Kenya it is the most common cause of death from cancer. Although this cancer is easily preventable, women must be screened to be helped.

The Emerging Technologies in Cervical Cancer Screening (ETiCCS) project, initiated by Heidelberg University Hospital with the pilot funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research, tests a specific method to detect Human Papilloma Virus (HPV), which can cause cervical cancer.

For this method, which is particularly well suited for the African socioeconomic environment, the Design and Co-Innovation Center team from SAP delivered a solution based on SAP Cloud Platform that runs on Fujitsu notebooks with touch-screen functionality sponsored by Intel.
