What Makes Mobile Clinical Solution Innovative?

Union Hospital is the first hospital in Hong Kong to deploy mobile point of care solution.
Starting from 2009, we keep developing the most innovative healthcare applications with various healthcare technology companies.

We began with three trial applications – Identification, Observation and Medication. After these proved successful, additional applications were added, including Blood Tests, Patient Scheduling, Paperless Documentation etc. Meanwhile, the mobility was being extended from nursing care into doctor consultation at bedside in 2011.

The MCS integrated with the First DataBank, Hospira MedNet Smart Pumps and Cadi SmartSense could offer comprehensive information for our nursing staff and doctors in the day to day care of our in-patients.

Together with the Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) technology, doctors doing rounds in hospital or consulting at their clinics in the hospital campus will have their hospital patients’ current information at their fingertips, be it laboratory investigation results, imaging reports or real-time vital-sign observations, just by the touchscreen of their own tablet, whether it is an Apple iOS or Android.
