Biomedical Informatics PhD Student Awarded the Best Student Paper

Kuo, Ming-Chuan (Jessie), RN, MS, won the Best Student Paper Award at the 12th International Congress on Nursing Informatics (NI2014), which was held for every two years among Asia, American and Europe areas. The NI2014, chaired by Professor Polun Chang of Biomedical Informatics Institute, was held at Taipei in the period of June 21 to 25 with 490 attendants from 29 courtiers.

Jessie was awarded the Best Student Paper by the international Science Program Committee from 15 international student competitors. Her paper, titled as A Total Design and Implementation of an Intelligent Mobile Chemotherapy Medication Administration, described how she led a multidisciplinary team, composed of physicians, nurses, pharmacists and IT engineers, at the Cathay General Hospital to reengineer the entire medication loop with an innovative informatics project for the dangerous and difficult chemotherapy medication process. They creatively built a high-secured IT-enhanced double checking mechanism, compared to the traditional 2-nurse model, using imaging recognition technique, bar-code reading and the handheld device designed by Dr. Polun Chang. This new system can save 80% of nurse's original administration time, equivalent to more than one full-time nurse a year, with better care and service quality. Her study reported that nurses' satisfaction score was as high as 90 and as high as 96.9% of interviewed patients felt the new process was more secured and safer.

Jessie attributed this success to her mentoring Professor, Dr. Chang, and her graduate training at the institute. She said that she has been inspired with better vision by attending many international conferences and visiting advanced institutes. She was very happy to be awarded and emphasized that this honor belongs to our university too.
