Taiwan Leading Charge Into 'Smart Healthcare' Future

Imagine hospital beds so intuitive that they can track both a patient’s vital signs and sleeping patterns? What about robot-assisted surgery when the doctor and patient are miles apart? These scenes may soon be a reality as the automation technology is gradually revolutionizing healthcare through to the era of "smart healthcare."

Taiwan is leading the charge in introducing intelligent and intuitive systems for a better quality of patient care, with its top-tier medical technology, robust supply chains, and burgeoning biotechnology industry.

In recent years, the value of Taiwan’s biomedical industry significantly increased to a booming USD16.2 billion, making it one of the industry pillars for national development.

Taiwan’s domain leadership has been cemented by effectively fostering a supportive and collaborative ecosystem where academic, private, and public institutions work together to create products that contribute to smart healthcare.

Meanwhile, 2019 Taiwan Excellence awardee Onyx Healthcare Inc also created medical products that optimize and seamlessly automate hospital processes that are usually done on paper.

The company’s medical tablet MD101 aids nurses as they gather the data of a patient’s vital signs, thus reducing the time spent on each patient, which is usually up to 12 minutes. Altogether, their products help improve the accuracy and efficiency of over-all patient care in hospitals.
