Challenges
The inconvenience of carrying paper charts.
The method of printing and providing information on paper was inconvenient for carrying and storing information.

The difficulties of updating medical records.
The Information regarding patients could not be updated anytime, anywhere. Notebook PCs had poor portability and despite the diverse portable devices available in today’s mobile generation, many of them are too small to deliver medical information that includes images.

Time-consuming tasks to prepare documents
and transfer work, because various medical information devices were scattered throughout the hospital.
Technology
Mobile Rounding.
For doctors, the preparation for rounding, reviewing patient statuses, and other tasks could be conducted anytime, anywhere, thus taking up less time. Moreover, when updating a patient’s status, the medical records are saved automatically as soon as the data is entered.

Mobile Office
allows medical employees to search emails and share the information with other doctors and relevant individuals.

Medical Support Service
provides the latest medical and other important information. Doctors can get the patient’s latest condition and relate this information directly to them. This information can then also be shared with the patient in a text file. They can view his/her latest condition and express their feedback to the doctors.
