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.
