Cutting Edge Digital Hospital

Since the introduction of the EMR (Electronic Medical Record) system back in June 2008, a hospital without paper chartswas established, thereby allowing electronic searches of a patient’s medical records at any time in order to facilitate the most efficient patient care. Discontinuing the use of paper charts or films has also actually contributed to the conservation of natural resources. In December of 2010, our hospital in particular took a leading role in constructing a full PACS (Picture Archiving Communication System) to allow the staff to diagnose and read tests, such as ultrasounds, breast cancer screening, osteoporosis screening and ECGs, straightaway online, which enabled a faster and more accurate way to view the test results. In addition, the medical quality was enhanced somewhat by introducing modern radiology equipment of the university hospital standards.
