How ASUS VivoWatch has enhanced hospital health checks
ASUS VivoWatch is hugely popular with users around the world, but its advanced monitoring technologies have also brought it to the attention of respected medical institutes – including the Show Chwan Memorial Hospital in Taiwan.
The hospital's management decided they would like to offer a premium-tier telemedicine service for patients. The ambition was to provide VIP clients with access to virtual health checks, to act as an intermediate service to traditional, bi-annual physical check-ups.
That's where VivoWatch came in. The Show Chwan Memorial Hospital's health center now provides select patients with the ASUS wearable, along with the ASUS HealthConnect app, allowing key data about well-being to be monitored and collected. This information can then be transferred automatically to the hospital's medical personnel for review. After analysis, the patient is offered advice on how to adjust their lifestyle to improve or sustain their overall health.
Commenting on the choice of ASUS as a partner, and VivoWatch as the technology enabler, president of Show Chwan Health Care System, Dr. Ming-Ho Huang, said: “We aim to treat patients like family. To this end, we innovate continuously, evaluating new medical technologies, knowledge and equipment. Our advanced health-check service, enabled by ASUS VivoWatch, has equipped our professional medical staff with cutting-edge technology. We look forward to continuing our collaboration with ASUS to advance our medical offerings through the power of VivoWatch – empowering both our staff and patients to enjoy more comprehensive health services.”
How ASUS healthcare equipment is empowering medical innovation
The ASUS collaboration with Show Chwan Memorial Hospital goes deeper than just VivoWatch. ASUS has also joined forces with the respected Taiwanese healthcare provider to create an innovation center dedicated to the design and development of AI software and other applications for medical use.
The first project of this close cooperativeeffort is an AI-imaging solution for early detection of lung adenocarcinoma – an aggressive form of cancer. Currently, this project is in the development stage, with the related medical paper for this innovative productexpected to be published product in 2022.
The two partners are leveraging their respective expertise to bring this AI-imaging solution to life. For its part, the Show Chwan Memorial Hospital is collecting the necessary medical data and providing professional medical recommendations for the development of the product.On the ASUS side, our team is charged with creating and evolving both the hardware, AI algorithm and wider software development for thetechnology platform.
ASUS and Show Chwan Memorial Hospital are also looking to work together beyond the development of this innovative AI-imaging solution for early detection of lung adenocarcinoma. Over the next couple of years, our teams will join forces to consider how our combined knowledge can bring forth technological leaps in the fields of personal health tracking, portable ultrasound equipment and other AI-powered medical software solutions.
