The China Medical University Hospital has proven its capability in digital health by scoring well above the global average in the latest HIMSS Digital Health Indicator, particularly in its ability to transform data into knowledge and develop personalized risk prediction, such as with the creation of the "i.A.M.S platform" which helps determine the pathogen within an hour and corrects dosing with precision prescription to reduce mortality and expense. HIMSS officials congratulated the hospital's efforts and excellent results, and expressed their anticipation for the hospital to continue deepening innovation in digital health, and together with HIMSS to improve global public health.
For the first time, China Medical University Hospital was invited to hold the digital health in Chicago, titled "Taiwan Forum - Digital Health Transformation Can Save More Lives". The event received enthusiastic support from global medical elites, with over a hundred experts in attendance, including HIMSS Vice President Pierce and Asia-Pacific Vice President Simon Lin. Attendees listened to the CMUH presentation on Taiwan's digital health experiences on three major digital platforms: the intelligent antimicrobial system "i.A.M.S.", the remote AI-assisted diagnosis system for myocardial infarction-“Central Taiwan Heart Resuscitation Network” and the intelligent lung protection system that visualizes respiratory data-“Integrated Smart ARDS Rescue”. Those platforms received high praise from the experts in attendance, including representatives from South Korea's Samsung Hospital, which was ranked first globally in smart hospitals last year.
