Posted on September 23, 2021

Bangkok, Thailand: Huawei Technologies (Thailand) Co. Ltd. signed on 5G-powered healthcare towards a digital Thailand Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Department of Medical Services (DMS) of the Ministry of Public Health (MoPH), to establish a smart platform that will facilitate advanced medical treatments using cutting edge digital technology . The MoU signing ceremony was held at the DMS office, chaired by HE Mr. Anutin Charnvirakul, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Public Health and Mr. Abel Deng, CEO of Huawei Thailand.

In cooperation with the National Cancer Institute and Rajavithi Hospital, both under DMS, this initiative aims to increase the efficiency of medical services and operations in order to improve the quality of health services. During the event, a live demonstration was held to showcase the 5G smart ambulance, 5G telemedicine and home isolation solutions for remote diagnosis and treatment of patients.

In his honorable speech, HE Mr. Anutin Charnvirakul underlined the ministry’s mission to improve Thailand’s health system. With the implementation of ICT technologies, many new services including telemedicine, patient queue management and patient information collection using Big Data have been made possible. He commented, “We believe that with advanced ICT equipment, our expertise and the adoption of 5G technology, we can create equal access to quality and timely healthcare. During the ongoing pandemic where social distancing measures are enacted, the Department of Medical Services and Huawei will jointly explore the health benefits of 5G under this MoU. Joint projects will ensure better health services for Thais. On this special occasion, I would like to thank Huawei for its support in providing advanced equipment and its in-depth knowledge of the industry. My gratitude also goes to the Department of Medical Services for its contribution which has led to the transfer of knowledge in the field of health. “

“This MoU is an important step that will bring rapid progress to medical care in the country,” said Dr Somsak Akksilp, director general of the Department of Medical Services. “It is an honor for DMS and our carefully selected hospitals to partner with Huawei on a cutting-edge initiative that will raise the level and standards of our hospital services and improve operational efficiency. “

Mr. Abel Deng stressed that “Huawei is proud to partner with DMS, National Cancer Institute and Rajavithi Hospital for this pioneering program that will help strengthen Thailand’s healthcare system. This MoPH will contribute to MoPH’s vision of transforming smarter hospitals in the near future. He further added, “In this age of digitalization in the medical field, it is an honor to accompany Thailand as its healthcare sector links the value of medical care to the needs of patients. The introduction of smart innovations and infrastructure will improve the work of health and medical professionals and the quality of life of people in urban and rural areas. Huawei continues to drive digital transformation in Thailand and bring digital technology to every person, home and organization for a fully connected and smart Thailand. “

This MoU responds to DMS’s mission to continually improve its services and, with support from Huawei, to introduce enhanced smart services that will apply integrated digital technologies using 5G infrastructure, artificial intelligence (AI ), big data and cloud edge computing. .

As part of the two-year agreement, Huawei will supply 5G technology to the two partner hospitals, enabling the immediate upgrade of their existing infrastructure. It will also provide digital knowledge transfer, training and project supervision to hospital staff to enable them to operate efficiently and sustainably, for the benefit of medical staff and patients. These technologies will initially be used for telemedicine solutions such as remote monitoring and diagnosis which will considerably reduce the risk of transmission of infections between doctors and patients. In addition, they will be used for emergency care services such as ambulance transport, where useful information, such as real-time location, patient vital signs and video images are transmitted instantly, allowing Rescuers to receive advice on the best emergency care and the hospital team to prepare for treatment or surgery on arrival.

Huawei remains committed to introducing digital technologies to create a strong and connected healthcare ecosystem that can improve the experience for patients, customers and medical staff, while improving efficiency and reducing costs.
