Matters of the Heart

The Heart Research Institute (HRI) is a not-for-profit research facility based in New South Wales, Australia. The organization conducts “innovative, world-class research to prevent, detect and treat cardiovascular disease.” Although based in Australia, HRI works with researchers from around the world.

Medical researchers have one of the most critical jobs in the world. It’s imperative, therefore, that every second of their workday gets dedicated to discovering new ways to improve human health. Meanwhile, an international collaboration between medical researchers is essential for staying on top of current research and best practices. Enabling researchers to share their work with colleagues around the world effortlessly can make a huge difference. In the case of the Heart Research Institute, it could be the difference between disease and cure, and between life and death.

HRI was in desperate need of a platform that could streamline processes and improve productivity. With so much on the line, it’s no surprise that HRI chose Microsoft to revolutionize the entire organization.

Microsoft Teams Streamlines Research for HRI

In previous years, HRI researchers employed a variety of different tools and platforms to conduct their work. Today, the use of Microsoft Teams streamlines research for the Health Research Institute. HRI leverages Microsoft Teams to help its researchers collaborate nationally and internationally across over 150 projects per year. With the help of Microsoft, HRI created a modern workplace that made the organization more productive, which allows vital work to progress faster. Meanwhile, HRI also dramatically improved its cybersecurity posture, an important consideration in this era of data privacy lawsuits.

While Microsoft 365 fundamentally changed the way that HRI works, it could also do the same for your Sacramento small business. Check out this video to learn how the Health Research Institute (HRI) uses Microsoft Teams to enable its researchers to communicate and collaborate seamlessly.
