[2020/04/17] Technological Disease Prevention, NYMU Presents the “Smart Disease Control Mobile Platform”

The Digital Medical Center held a press conference on March 19th to present their “Disease Control Mobile Platform

 

How to accurately track suspected or confirmed cases of infected patients has always been a problem for epidemic prevention units. National Yang-Ming University Digital Medical Center has developed the “Disease Control Mobile Platform”, which has just been tested in some of the most severely infected medical institutions in Mainland China. This system will be available to domestic enterprises and medical care institutions to help improve their epidemic prevention efficiency.

 

At a time when the United Kingdom has announced that it would no longer track and detect every suspected case of corona virus in the community, and would be devoting all its resources to medical institutions, the World Health Organization has called on countries to continue to implement a “track-isolate-treatment” strategy in order to stop the spread of the virus. How to effectively manage the population at risk has become the focus of community epidemic prevention. National Yang-Ming University has developed a “Disease Control Mobile Platform” that integrates independent health management, home quarantine, and home isolation into a single program. This platform is able to provide managers of enterprises and medical units with 24 hour full day monitoring of their employees’ health status.

 

The “Disease Control Mobile Platform” was developed at NYMU Institute of BioMedical Informatics by Professor Chang and his team, and is able to support front-line epidemic prevention personnel by providing them with digital tracking and management technology.

 

The disease control mobile platform is supported by National Yang-Ming University Digital Medical Center, and has involved the participation of the National Yang-Ming University teachers and students entrepreneurial team “Nine Day Action Health and Technology Corporation”. At the start of the viral outbreak in China, the mobile platform was implemented in a range of different medical institutions in Mainland China and was also tested in local communities and various designated hospitals for the diagnosis and follow-up management of suspected patients. After tests conducted in the epidemic hot-spots showed positive results, NYMU Digital Medical Center decided to provide this technology to fulfill domestic epidemic prevention needs free of charge.

 

The NYMU Digital Medical Center members developed the system and Professor Chang of the Institute of BioMedical Informatics stated “the United Kingdom opted to institute a range of special epidemic prevention measures because the epidemic had spread into the community. In other circumstances, investigations into the epidemic remain the first step needed to prevent the spread of an infectious disease”. He said, “Currently, the epidemic situation in Taiwan is not the same as China, Europe and the United States, and tracking management is still the focus; in such circumstances, supporting the front-line epidemic prevention personnel remains the core foundation and this disease control mobile platform is designed to do this.

 

     

  “A disease control mobile platform that is combined with the smart body temperature patch was developed by NYMU Incubator Center Enterprise “Aiweike” and is able to provide real-time body temperature data and reduce contact between medical personnel.

 

The Disease Control Mobile Platform is a cloud based service that includes functions such as body temperature monitoring, GPS positioning, tracking of contact history, and automatic early warnings. The organization’s health management personnel are able to log into the system through a computer or a mobile phone and this allows the health status of internal members to be automatically monitored. The program distinguishes risk levels via an artificial intelligence approach, and provides recommendation on anti-epidemic measures. The platform is able to be deployed by various large-scale organizations such as industrial enterprises of all sizes, long term palliative care units, hospitals, and even government epidemic prevention units. In addition, the system offers multiple languages, including English, Japanese, Korean, Indonesian, Vietnamese, Thai, etc, which helps to provide for the needs of individuals who cannot read Chinese.

 

This anti-epidemic solution can be combined with a smart body temperature patch that was developed by National Yang Ming University’s Incubation Center Enterprise “Aiweike” (an additional purchase). Aiweike said that the smart body temperature patch will automatically return the body temperature of an individual and provide real-time body temperature data of the observed target individual. This provides an effective way to detect fever immediately, as well as reducing the contact between the target individual and medical staff. The mobile platform monitors the body temperature 24 hours a day, anytime, anywhere. This allows the integration of digital technology into Taiwan’s epidemic prevention network.

 

The Disease Control Mobile Platform is supported by NYMU Digital Medical Center.
