On January 27th, 2014, NewTel introduced a solution to improve the transmission efficiency by compressing and decompressing the transmission file through our equipment and software.
The solution to improve communication efficiency is being applied initially in Viet Duc Hospital, Saint Paul Hospital. According to Prof.MD.Dr Pham Minh Thong, Vice president, Head of Radiology Department of Bach Mai Hospital, doctors here can just weekly online with 8 satellite hospitals and Thai Binh Medical University via the digital terminal system with normal transmission line, and many distance training courses.
In the past few months, thanks to the aid package of JICA (Japan), they have been able to take another step: online consultation including teleradiology. Many difficult cases with CT images, large magnetic resonance has been tested at online meetings between Bach Mai Hospital and Bac Ninh General Hospital, Ninh Binh General Hospital with high speed. “The meeting was so real that we were facing each other only at one’s fingertips” – said Vice President Nguyen Minh Thong.
However, such advantages are only about two more years within the framework of the project. At a meeting on the application of information technology in remote medical examination of the Ministry of Health recently, NewTel introduced solution to improve the efficiency of conventional communication lines by compression and Extract the files transmitted through our equipment and software. This solution is being applied initially in Viet Duc Hospital, Saint Paul Hospital effectively. Vice president Nguyen Minh Thong as well as the doctors here seem to be being “attracted”.
In terms of the social and economic efficiency of Telemedicine, Vice President Nguyen Minh Thong gives a comparison for a patient with serious illness. Having to dive hundreds of kilometers of hard, expensive travels is here only to be screened, tested and diagnosed by doctors who are experienced in medical expertise. Or wherever you go, just stay in the lower level medical facilities to be diagnosed and treated online by these doctors through telemedicine system at a cheaper, faster and more effective.
So why Telemedicine solution has just tested? Vice President Nguyen Minh Thong said that the most difficult is transmission lines and technical solutions. According to Dr. Nguyen Xuan Hien, Deputy Head of Bach Mai Radiology Department: “It is important to synchronize the national digital storage (Icloud). Currently, Bach Mai Hospital is spending billions of dollars each year on screening CT images or magnetic resonance imaging for patients. “If we spent that money investing in maintaining a national server storage system (rather than using Icloud servers abroad) to store images as well as patient records, the effect is enormous. This requires the Ministry of Health and the State to intervene in order to really get into the digital revolution in the health “-
Mr. Hien emphasized.
