Repost from Puspen Chattopadhyay and Ganesh Kudva, SAP Health
In July 2016, SAP Health announced a strategic partnership with Validic™, a leading provider of data connectivity solutions that provides access to data from hundreds of in-home clinical devices, wearables, and consumer healthcare applications. The goal of this collaboration has been to enable healthcare and life sciences companies to integrate patient-generated health data captured outside of the clinical setting into care treatment plans, clinical research studies, remote monitoring programs and preventative wellness initiatives — helping these organizations to better analyze a patient’s health, resulting in personalized treatment options. With a successful partnership that has been in place for two years, we wanted to highlight the progress we have made since integrating Validic’s digital health platform into the SAP Health platform solution SAP Health for Patient Engagement. Personally for us, it has been very satisfying to work together with Validic, and we are pleased to have established a strong partnership foundation, helping us continue to work on further collaboration opportunities.
How the integration works:
There has been close cooperation between the Validic product team and the SAP Health development team to develop a pre-packaged integration content using the middleware infrastructure – SAP Cloud Integration platform. The package contains integration flows, which connects to the Representational State Transfer Protocol based Application Programming Interfaces of the Validic Cloud and Open Data Protocol based Application Programming Interfaces of the SAP Health for Patient Engagement cloud. The SAP Cloud Integration infrastructure allows full flexibility to manage the integration content, and includes mapping of data objects between Validic and SAP Health for Patient Engagement, defining and scheduling the data flow and handling of any error situation. Further details about the integration is available at SAP help portal documentation of SAP Health for Patient Engagement –> Integration of Validic.
Validic Application Programming Interfaces were easy to consume, thanks to a comprehensive documentation. Standard pre-packaged content is available to handle example measurements (such as steps, blood glucose, sleep, weight, blood pressure, etc.), which can be customized or copied to deal with individual customer’s requirement. The quality of the integration is further enriched by certifying the Validic APIs to work well with SAP Health for Patient Engagement. The certification is enabled by the Integration and Certification Center group of SAP, who worked closely with the SAP Health for Patient Engagement development team and Validic product team to test and provide the certification.
Where to find more information:
SAP and Validic will each have booths at HIMSS (Las Vegas, March 5th – 9th, 2018. SAP booth #4821, Validic booth #12014), where one could stop by to learn about the SAP-Validic partnership and we will be happy to show a demo of the integration between SAP Health for Patient Engagement and Validic.
