Digital technology meets patient care: The Virtual Tumor Board
Avanade helped a large healthcare provider use the latest Microsoft technologies to treat more cancer patients than ever before.
Improving lives, one patient at a time.
Healthcare is one of the industries that has been dramatically transformed by digital technologies. In Australia and New Zealand in particular, consumers of healthcare services have more choices and as a result, have come to expect a more personalized experience—one that mirrors the type of interactions they have when engaging with other digital businesses.
Bupa, one of the world’s leading healthcare companies, recognized that it needed to transform to achieve dual business outcomes: be an effective champion for customers, and enable and inspire its employees.
Avanade Advisory partnered with Bupa to drive transformation across multiple areas and accelerate its journey toward a more digital business, keeping people’s needs at the center. Avanade supported Bupa’s customer experience and personalization program to deliver the right message to the right members at the right time—and through the right channel. And then it used the same principles to help empower Bupa’s employees.
Avanade also helped Bupa set up future-ready enterprise IT architectures and define key digital building blocks to ensure successful business outcomes for years to come.
By applying purpose-driven, human-centered and customer-centric principles to their business, Bupa has created sustainable value while also improving cost efficiency, productivity and growth.
“Our customers aren’t comparing us to our competitors, but rather with the customer experience they get from banks, travel agencies and the likes of Amazon and Airbnb. The customer looks for whatever the best experience is in the market, regardless of industry, and they expect Bupa to do the same thing.”
