The technology is designed to give time back to nurses by providing an instant overview of what is occurring in the medical ward. It also benefits patients by minimizing care errors and enabling a faster response time from the medical team.
Bangkok Hospital has also implemented a business intelligence solution developed by New Zealand company Cortell into four hospitals in Bangkok that identified cost and performance management as high priorities. Cortell Health offers a range of business intelligence products and services to support clinical and financial managers in the health sector. These solutions and services cover planning, budgeting, costing, reporting and patient intelligence.
Thanks to Cortell's customized products, Bangkok Hospital Medical Center facilities are now able to manage cost planning and budgeting, and we can see an improvement in their financial reporting and consolidation processes.
But it's not just about saving costs. We also need to reach patients in remote areas of Thailand and ensure they're getting quality care. Fast and accurate diagnosis is critical. Being able to test for a number of commonly occurring diseases with technology that is easily installed and operated in areas where there may be limited resources or medical expertise is essential to ensuring people in remote rural areas receive the medical attention they require.
Again, New Zealandis leading the way in developing mobile, affordable diagnostic technology. Currently being trialed in here in Thailand, New Zealand company Pictor's cutting edge diagnostic product can test for multiple diseases from just one drop of blood.
