Session 9－Smart Hospital & Homecare
Date: 26 July (Friday) 9:00 – 12:00 Venue: 3F, Bldg. A, CTBC Financial Park, Ballroom B
Attending Doctor, Department of Emergency and Critical Care Medicine
Taipei Medical University Hospital
Dr. Yuan obtained his MD degree in 1999 from the Chang Gung University, School of Medicine. After 2-year service in the navy, he started to pursue his surgical training in Chang Gung Memorial Hospital (CGMH), Linkou, and completed his training in general surgery and traumatology in 2006. Dr. Yuan was then assigned as a full-time physician in surgical ICU to promote surgical critical care quality. Dr. Yuan further obtained credentials from the Taiwan Jointed Accreditation Committee of Critical Care as an eligible intensivist in Taiwan. In 2010/3- 2011/3, Dr. Yuan had an advanced study in McGill University as research fellow and also being a clinical observer in the Intensive Care Unit of Jewish General Hospital, Montreal, Quebec. In 2012 and 2013, Dr. Yuan was elected as an excellent clinical instructor consecutively and was promoted as a clinical assistant professor of surgery. He had served as co-director for the training program of the Department of Trauma and Emergent Surgery (Acute Care Surgery) in CGMH and was invited to give special lectures regarding critical surgical care and trauma patient care in many different medical associations. In March 2017, Dr. Yuan transferred to work in the Taipei Medical University Hospital (TMUH) and hosts the Surgical Intensive Care Unit. In TMUH, Dr. Yuan devoted himself to the development of artificial intelligence (AI) in critical care medicine. He joins the team lead by Superintendent Prof. Chen and is currently participating in the remodeling of critical care with AI and transformation of tele-ICU to a more explicitly alignment for future healthcare.
Session Speech Title & Synopsis: AI & Blockchain Applications in TMUH
Artificial intelligence (AI) in health care is now considered merely within touching distance. The Taipei Medical University Hospital (TMUH) have devoted to the AI in critical care and especially focusing on structured electronic medical records (EMR) data and disease prediction model development. The data-enriched ICU care is an excellent and comprehensive environment for new AI-centric approach with innovative tools. Recently, the TMUH had developed an ICU information system, called the Ted-ICU AI platform, for supporting 24-hour ICU care monitoring and early predicting ICU diseases, for example, sepsis and delirium. In the foreseeable future, AI will inevitably be more crucial in ICU care. With Taiwan’s advantage in medicine, computing technology, and data science, AI in medicine is a goal worthy of our efforts. Besides, the TMUH is also the first to adopt the blockchain technologies to empower patients to own and control their EMR and electronic health records (EHR) data in Taiwan. Adoption of blockchain technology can represent a reliable strategy to facilitate patient-centric interoperability between patients and different stakeholders. Accordingly, with blockchain technologies, many interesting health care use cases are launched in TMUH. Using a blockchain-enabled approach to design novel medical services with patient-centered principles is our first, exciting experience in health care.
