Saving Lives Via Collaboration

Company: Brigham and Women's Hospital (BWH)

Project Leader: Michael Halle, Director of Scientific Visualization and Systems Architect

Technology In Focus: Document management and collaboration

Problem: For BWH, creating grants for medical funding required a drawn-out, complex process involving multiple geographically dispersed contributors who continually edit, revise, and update funding documents. The traditional productivity software and Internet-based file-sharing tools the hospital was using introduced version-control problems and added complexity to the process.
