Industry Knowledge

The Smart Healthcare Expo Taipei 2021: International Smart Healthcare Forum (ISHF) session 1, organized by the Joint Commission of Taiwan (JCT), was held on July 30, 2021. The forum invited four of the leading speakers from Taiwan's smart healthcare industry to talk about Taiwan's smart healthcare solutions and practical applications:

David Wei Chun Huang, director of the Department of Critical Care Medicine at Kaohsiung Veterans General Hospital, gave a presentation on the mobile ECG system, which can locate and transfer the measured data to the hospital in 30 seconds through the 12-lead ECG examination and automated interpretation feature, helping save lives during those critical first few minutes following the onset of a heart attack. Viewlead Technology general manager Sam Tsai gave a talk on the smart cloud dynamic rescue system, which was launched nearly three years ago in collaboration with the government of New Taipei City. The system has led to a significant 2.75% increase in the recovery rate of patients with out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA), demonstrating that the intelligent integration of medical resources can improve the success rate of emergency rescue. Chi-Sheng Hung, executive director of the Tele-Health Center at Taiwan University Hospital, shared details of the innovative telehealth service model. Founded more than 10 years ago, the center provides medical services that integrate remote physiological monitoring and AI analysis of chronic wounds, vastly improving the quality of treatment of peripheral vascular diseases and reducing the risk of amputation. Compal Electronics vice president Jui-Chun Hsu used Compal iCare as an example to illustrate how the intelligent medical integration technology can be applied to Long-term care after discharge, reducing the cost of care while enhancing the quality of service. The technology served as a basis for building a smart healthcare ecosystem.
