“Technology for containment against COVID-19”
During the pandemic period, we use wearable devices (including ECG smartwatches, bluetooth pulse oximeters and continuous, real-time body temperature monitoring system) for early detection of any sign of clinical deterioration. The data can be transmitted to the cloud automatically for monitoring and review. In each isolation room, we also setup a novel high-definition video monitoring system to evaluate patient condition remotely. Besides, each room is also equipped with a communication system allowing medical personnel and patient/caregiver to communicate anytime without physical contact. These measures can significantly reduce the need for medical personnel to contact COVID-19 patients while maintain high quality of medical care at the same time. After discharge, we use wearable devices to monitor body temperature, heart rate and oxygen saturation to ensure the safety after discharge in COVID patients.
As for outpatient service, the traditional mode inevitably increases numerous contact between medical personnel and chronic yet stable patients. Per the “Rules of Medical Diagnosis and Treatment by Telecommunications” with recent relax of restrictions made by the Ministry of Health and Welfare, stable patients requiring follow-up treatment can be managed and provided prescriptions through telecommunication without any physical contact with medical personnel. This new medical model hugely reduces personal contact during the pandemic period and is considered the future of medical care.

“Chest X-ray Supportive Detection System” in AILabs, the first TFDA approved AI-based X ray supportive detection system for COVID-19

Dr. Cheng in National Taiwan University Hospital has developed an AI based “Chest X-ray Supportive Detection System” with Taiwan AILAbs. This AI system can automatically detect the suspected area of COVID -19 infection in chest X-ray (CXR), reveal it by heatmap, and actively warn the medical staff about the suspicious cases. The accuracy of this model is up to 91.78%. It can be used, alongside PCR testing and rapid antigen tests, as a fast diagnostic tool to detect COVID-19. The TFDA had gave approval for commercialization of the AI system on a special basis (TFDA/EUA). The strength of the model is summarized in the following:

• Approved by TFDA/EUA in Taiwan, CE in Europe
• The accuracy is up to 91.78%
• Used in patients with lower respiratory tract symptoms as a fast detection tool
• Integrated with the PACS(Picture Archiving and Communication System) in most hospitals

National Taiwan University Hospital (NTUH), Center of Intelligent Healthcare (CIH)

NTUH is partner with Microsoft and has launched wearable devices like HoloLens App for assisting healthcare monitoring and services. For instance, in emergency rooms and intensive care units, or for COVID-19 quarantine room, the zero-contact diagnosis and treatment method not only greatly reduces the risk of medical and nursing infections, but also improves the shortage of first-line medical staff under the epidemic. Other practical examples include medical data access, immediate monitoring as well as the medical operations with some constraints.

In addition, due to the spread of COVID-19 and the infection and death of people who are prematurely ill from 2019 to 2021, the Center of Intelligent Healthcare (CIH) of our hospital has completed the development and is currently entering the test phase of the Intelligent Medical Imaging Assistance System for potential SARS-CoV-2 infection. Our technology of analysis reports such as predicting the severity of the patient and the outcome and prognostic analysis of the disease, so as to provide the valuable reference for the clinical decisions in the hospitals.


With the innovative research power of the university, NTUST will join the Healthcare EXPO TAIWAN,2021 to showcase the latest research highlights in healthcare and expand into the international medical industry. For more information, please visit booth no. M820 on 4F of Nangang Exhibtion Hall 1.
