Customer Snapshot: Success Strategy
Forerunner in Latin American Healthcare
The Fundación Valle del Lili works towards being the first institution to provide high-complexity healthcare in Colombia, together with social support programs, research, and education using a model of administration with service culture, safety, innovation, efficiency, profitability, and social responsibility approach.
The healthcare-specific functions of the SAP® ERP application for managing human resources, fixed assets, financial materials, and electronic health records for patients were a major consideration. Additionally, the ability to interface with specialized medical applications, including nurse evaluation, blood bank, radiology, and endoscopy was a plus. Overall, SAP provided the best balance of functions and cost compared to other available solutions.
Collaborating with SAP enhances our patient-centered approach – we can go beyond managing illnesses to promoting wellness. In addition, we empower not only our internal staff but also doctors and patients in the community by providing access to data that lets them proactively manage healthcare.– Ludwig Albornoz, Clinical Physician and Atomic Pathologist, Fundación Valle del Lili
