Digital Transformation

The Intelligent Transformation of Healthcare with Lorena Ferino of Plexxus and Sam Masri of SAP

Digital Transformation is synonymous with building an Intelligent Enterprise – that is, modernizing a business’ foundation to harness intelligent technologies, such as artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML), the Internet of Things capabilities (IoT), and real-time, in-memory analytics to achieve operational excellence. While such strategic change is needed in all industries, healthcare companies are proactively researching how they can drive business value by transforming to an Intelligent Enterprise.

Today, Ontario is home to a world leader in leveraging Digital Transformation, Plexxus. Even though it was established only 11 years ago, through its collaborative MPSC initiative, this non-profit is relied on to manage 60% of non-wage spend in Ontario Healthcare, and that number can only go up. Plexxus’ leadership team is using an Intelligent Enterprise framework to reimagine Healthcare spend and deliver an unparalleled level of service, collaboration and responsiveness.

Join Plexxus’ CIO Lorena Ferino and SAP’s COO, Sam Masri as they discuss digital transformation, streamlining data assets and containing costs – all with a focus on improving people’s lives in Ontario.
