A new crown pneumonia epidemic has set off an upsurge in the development of the health industry in the world. Relying on its advantages in the electronics industry and medical services, Taiwan focuses on the smart medical field. New medical robots, new artificial intelligence diagnosis and treatment and medical image recognition methods, new smart drug development, and new smart health management models are constantly being introduced. Professionals on the island believe that the medical services that used to require a large hospital to provide will gradually Toward a “decentralization” approach, to develop into the community, and reach every family. The question is, as smart medical technology becomes more advanced, will the role of traditional doctors be replaced?
Artificial intelligence can assist doctors in making correct and rapid diagnoses, but “humane variables” such as patient emotions, preferences, speech and behavior cannot be handed over to computers for processing at once, and doctors’ responsibilities are not limited to judging images and pathology Therefore, Tang Gaojun believes that artificial intelligence will still be difficult to replace the role of doctors in the future.
The most innovative smart medical research, combined with the original strengths of Yangming and Jiaotong University, jointly develops such as AI (Note: Artificial Intelligence) in medical applications, telemedicine, medical robots, Internet of Things and wearable devices. Various localities have launched 5G+ medical and health application pilot project declarations a few days ago. A batch of pilot projects will be selected for emergency treatment and remote diagnosis to cultivate new 5G smart medical and health products, new formats, and new models that can be replicated and promoted.
The key to promoting smart medical care is not only the technologicalization of instruments and equipment, but also the improvement of the soft power of the medical and nursing profession, optimization and integration of the process systems and systems for patient consultation, and the power of digital technology to break through the limitations of time and space to meet the needs of patients and their families. , Doctors’ diagnosis and treatment, and nursing care and care are efficiently connected in series to achieve a “people-centered” comprehensive medical service effect.
The use of artificial intelligence big data analysis technology has achieved the target three-dimensional structure prediction technology and the use of artificial intelligence to independently design new structure small molecule technology. In layman’s terms, these two technologies are aimed at suppressing tumor cells. Among them, the former found the “scissors” for cutting functional genes, using this “scissors” can cut out the functional genes that induce tumors; the latter is like a vaccine, allowing the body to gain more ability to fight cancer cells. Both of these achievements have been published in relevant authoritative journals at home and abroad, and have been supported by related funds.
Primary care is in a critical period of development, and there are many opportunities. The industry should focus on finding innovative footholds in multiple cross-scenarios, finding breakthroughs in development from institutional and mechanism innovation, cutting into larger scenarios from small cuts, and exploring more health application scenarios in the community in the future;
Not only Internet hospitals, data security, artificial intelligence + biomedicine, blockchain, etc., will also become important nodes in the development of medical digitalization with the improvement of future policies and technological advancement. Among them, blockchain is important for the development of medicine and the integrity of scientific research. Promotion plays an important role.
Facing the many difficulties in the process of digital medical transformation, medical practitioners must dare to rise to the challenge and provide more solutions to promote the sustainable development of the industry. However, the idea of digital transformation is inseparable, and it must always fall on the “people”, and digital empowerment must be used to achieve people-oriented intelligent transformation.
The various models of digital technology applied to smart medical care are gradually taking shape, but the payment or business operation models of smart medical care still need to be actively explored and developed. “When a useful smart auxiliary medical process is actually applied, is it paid by the service provider, service recipient, service provider (medical institution), or the insurance industry (commercial insurance or government-led health insurance)? How to pay?” Lin Qihong said, I am afraid that the answer to this question will have to be constantly explored and verified during actual medical visits.
Affected by the epidemic, various telemedicine models have been launched globally starting from 2020. People in the medical field foresee that after the COVID-19 pandemic subsides, the global model of diagnosis and treatment of medical patients will undergo substantial changes, and the opportunity for popularization of smart medical treatment may lie in it.
Even though the medical information system has spread to medical institutions throughout Taiwan, the way doctors see a doctor cannot get rid of traditional constraints. Make good use of 5G communication network and artificial intelligence Internet of Things to gradually replace the traditional face-to-face consultation and medical treatment model, and design a new set of medical service processes. This is the true digital transformation of medical care.
