SAMSUNG SDS Achieved Successful Result in Test Run of Its POC System in a U.S. Operating Room

Now, there is POC (Point Of Care) for medical care. Like POS (Point Of Sale) for facilitating a distribution system, POC (Point Of Care) will enable users to collect, analyze and modify data on the points of operation and medical care for a patient. Samsung SDS (CEO: Kim Hong-ki) said on August 21 that it became the first mobile medical solution provider in the world by achieving successful result from the test run of its POC system in the Medical City hospital, Texas, U.S., in operations on two patients with heart disease. The landmark achievement came 10 months after the U.S. operation of Samsung SDS came up with the idea of developing the POC system. The U.S. operation started to market the solution jointly with ARMUS (CEO Gyula Sziraczky), a DB application provider, targeting hospitals and clinics across the U.S.. Samsung SDS upgraded Outcomes, a DB application solution, which was authorized by the Society of Thoracic Surgeons, to a mobile solution to apply it to medical operations, eliminating the time-consuming process of data input ranging from 700 to 1,000 fields. Among the most outstanding capabilities, the solution allows users to analyze all the variables possible and process the information in real time during an operation, enabling doctors to respond properly to unexpected emergency situations. "Mobile devices including cellular phones are found virtually everywhere, however, the mobile technology application to the medical field has been very limited as medical equipment is extremely sensitive to electronic waves," said an official of Samsung SDS. "It is especially meaningful in that the wireless mobile solution developed by Samsung SDS proved not to interrupt the electronic waves of medical equipment used in operating rooms in this successful POC system test run." Samsung SDS made a presentation of the system in front of ACC (American College of Cardiology), AATS (American Association for Thoracic Surgery) and plans to carry out demonstrations of the solution in up to 500 hospitals in the U.S. to promote the commercialization of the POC system. The POC system enables a wide range of applications from home care to remote medical care as it allows doctors to input data about a whole cycle of a surgical operation and allows outpatients to input data about his or her symptoms. The video image of a demonstration of the system is available at the STS website (www.ctsnet.org/company/medtronic), a famous website among those in the medical field.
