    Blue Prism's COVID-19 Response Program includes the following real-world customer examples in the healthcare industry:

    Accelerating Vaccine Development

    University of California San Francisco (UCSF): UCSF is the world's leading university exclusively focused on health. Professor Bill DeGrado, the founder and principal investigator at the UCSF DeGrado Lab, explores new techniques in the computationally complex problem of de novo protein design, a vital tool to craft new vaccines and therapeutics for pathogens. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the DeGrado Lab has broadened their focus to designing prophylactics, vaccines and therapeutics to help manage the SARS CoV-2 virus, the cause of COVID-19.

    An extremely computer-intensive process, de novo protein design entails coming up with the right primary sequence of amino acids that will fold into the correct three-dimensional conformation that can attach to the virus to neutralize its abilities to infect. The lab is exploring how Blue Prism Digital Workers can be used to speed up the movement of data between applications, which is a slow manual process today. The Digital Workers would provide the ability to create new and flexible automation pathways that allow computer-based apps to run in different sequences. It allows Digital Workers to transform, sort, and categorize data using various AI techniques, which should result in a shorter time to design these life-saving molecules.

    Healthcare Supplies

    Hospital suppliers are reporting greater shortages as well as increased demand for parts due to the COVID-19 crisis and the strain it is placing on the healthcare industry worldwide. One healthcare organization's purchasing team has seen an 800% increase in the cancellations coming from suppliers in recent weeks. In the face of this emergency, intelligent automation leader a Blue Prism partner in intelligent automation is developing an intelligent process for the healthcare organization, with Digital Workers from Blue Prism, to cancel the purchase order lines and relieve the manual burden the team is facing today. Streamlining a manual, repetitive process, new Digital Workers are now able to quickly work through the high volume of cancellations, improving purchasing efficiency, decreasing response time, and helping the hospital system better administer to patients.

    Mental Health

    To support the identification of COVID-19 related medical cases throughout London, NHS is working with Blue Prism to enable the sharing of respiratory data across multiple healthcare agencies. By applying simple automation with Blue Prism Digital Workers, combined with analytics tools such as Microsoft Power BI, NHS is now better equipped to identify and handle these critical cases, potentially saving lives.

    Healthcare Back Office

    As more people seek diagnosis and treatment for COVID-19, the impact is being felt in the healthcare back offices, throughout NHS. Medical secretaries who support clinicians, human resources, finance and other administrative staff are all critical personnel serving on the front lines of the current crisis. Working as part of the NHS’s Sustainability and Transformation Partnership Back Office initiative, Blue Prism Digital Workers continue to automate many of these administrative tasks and processes, so that patients receive the best and most efficient care possible.

    We are all in this together – Blue Prism is committed to protecting the health and safety of our employees, customers and partners worldwide during this crisis, while also ensuring business continuity.

Blue Prism For Good

The Blue Prism For Good initiative addresses four distinct areas: Charity & Fundraising, Inclusivity, Supporting not-for-profits, and Education. These are unified by our vision to unleash society’s full potential and inspire the future of work through automation. As a predominantly grassroots movement, all suggestions and ideas for volunteering are welcomed.
