Huawei in 5G partnership with hospitals

Global tech powerhouse Huawei has signed a two-year memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Thailand's Department of Medical Services (DMS) to enhance the country's medical services using 5G-powered technologies.

DMS wants to introduce enhanced smart services that apply integrated digital technologies using 5G infrastructure, artificial intelligence, big data and cloud edge computing.

The MoU signing ceremony on Wednesday was presided over by Public Health Minister Anutin Charnvirakul.

Mr Anutin said many new services, including telemedicine, patient queue management and patient information collection using big data, were made possible through the implementation of information and communication technology (ICT).

With advanced ICT equipment, DMS’s expertise and the adoption of 5G technology, it can create equal access to quality and timely healthcare, he said, adding that the DMS and Huawei will jointly explore the benefits of 5G in the healthtech field under this MoU.

Through the cooperation, Huawei will work with the National Cancer Institute and Rajavithi Hospital, both under the DMS, to increase the efficiency of medical services and operations to improve the quality of healthcare services, said Abel Deng, chief executive of Huawei Thailand.

Under this two-year agreement, Huawei will provide 5G technology to the two partner hospitals, enabling the immediate upgrade of their existing infrastructure, he said.

It will also provide digital knowledge transfer, training and project supervision to hospital staff to enable them to operate efficiently for the benefit of both medical staff and patients.

These technologies will initially be used for telemedicine solutions such as remote monitoring and diagnosis that will help reduce the risk of transmitting infections between doctors and patients, Mr Deng said.

They will be used for emergency care services such as ambulance transport, where useful information, such as real-time location, patients’ vital signs and video images are transmitted instantly, enabling rescue doctors to receive guidance for the best emergency care and the hospital team to prepare for treatment or surgery upon arrival.

Dr Somsak Akksilp, director-general of the DMS, said the MoU is a milestone that brings advanced technologies to medical care, increasing the level and standards of hospital services and improving operational efficiency.

“Introducing smart innovations and infrastructure will also improve the work of healthcare and medical professionals and the quality of life of the people in urban and rural areas,” he said.
