ICT in healthcare and smart healthcare were the main two topics discussed at the “2018 Taiwan Smart Healthcare & Medical Technology” workshop held last week by the Joint Commission of Taiwan (JCT) at the Saigon Exhibition and Convention Center (SECC) in Ho Chi Minh City’s District 7.

Leading experts in smart healthcare and leaders in Taiwan (China) and Vietnam’s healthcare sectors attended the seminar to introduce the practical and effective application of healthcare services by combining ICT and IoT and provide the opportunity to experience Taiwan’s smart medical technology.

The workshop was held by JCT outside of Taiwan for first time and represents the beginning of a move to promote smart medical technology exchanges between Taiwan (China) and other partners and develop a stronger brand in smart healthcare. JCT has also developed a web-based intelligent medical multi-application network and will continue to hold more medical forums, increasing contact with international partners, and hold seminars on smart healthcare in many other partners in the near future.

“We always encourage Taiwanese hospitals to cooperate in the development of medical technology and actively connect to high quality healthcare resources, healthcare services and healthcare information integration, and medical equipment and tools, which build smart IT solutions and improve the efficiency and quality of healthcare,” said Ms. Yu Hang Wang, Project Manager of the Taiwan Joint Commission on Hospital Accreditation.

President of the Ho Chi Minh City Public Health Association, Mr. Le Truong Giang, said that some hospitals and medical centers in Vietnam have been applying smart healthcare solutions such as electronic medical records, telehealth monitoring through passive monitoring equipment and proactive surveillance equipment, and personal health reports.

Dr. Yuan Hwa Chou, Director of the Quality Management Center at the Taipei Veterans General Hospital, introduced smart healthcare in medical quality and patient safety. Recording medical information from advanced sensors, data storage, and information calculation offers personalized advice or solutions from collected data.

Dr. Hou-Chaung Chen, Director of the International Health Office and Planning Center at Taoyuan General Hospital, said a personal health record system in healthcare that collects patient information, including medical history, helps patients receive better medical examinations and treatment, drug care, and monitoring. At the same time, hospitals can manage patient data and personalize patient care to achieve the best outcome.

On cardiovascular issues, Dr. Tse-Hsuan Yang, Attending Physician at the Department of Critical Care Medicine at Kaohsiung Veterans General Hospital, introduced an ultra-rapid electrocardiogram device, through a 12-lead ECG scan and automatic interpretation in the device, with the measurement data transferred to the hospital, taking advantage of treatment and rescue time.
