Global Health Asia-Pacific Best Hospitals Awards 2021 - Page 58



In Bangkok Hospital Phuket our patient ’ s health and well-being have always been the core of our services and innovations .
At the start of the COVID-19 pandemic , both our domestic and international patients have experienced many challenges in accessing continuous medical care , and to fully support these needs our Innovation Committee decided to develop the Internet of Medical Things ( loMT ) services by introducing the CareConnect Technology . With a strong collaboration and a goal to deliver excellent healthcare , Bangkok Hospital Phuket partnered with SCG to provide the equipment , and My Health First to develop the software for smooth access to our patients .
In this new milestone , the whole smart system is 24 / 7 connected to our Continuum of Care Team as they fully monitor the patient . With our data integration system , results are being supervised in a real-time setting . Patients can also keep an eye on their current state as well as being monitored by our healthcare professionals .
As we are all exposed to an army of risk factors , a lot of us ended up having NCD ’ s . CareConnect Technology enables patients with chronic illnesses such as hypertension , heart disease , diabetes , chronic renal failure , stroke , obesity , cancer and chronic lung disease to continue their medical care through this technology in a seamless and hassle-free health tracking real-time-monitoring with immediate healthcare response in case of emergency distress .
At the course of implementation , we found out that all current patients , 100 percent of them , need a recommendation to change their daily habits and 45 percent require changes in treatment plan to improve treatment goals .
CareConnect Technology also prevents the chances of patient ’ s admission in the critical care unit .
As we all go through this pandemic , trust and loyalty continue to increase within our patients as we keep on pursuing our mission on providing them with excellent professional healthcare that they all deserve .
