To address the challenges in the healthcare sector, Huawei and its global partners provide a strong digital infrastructure and end-to-end innovative solutions for various scenarios, such as clinical diagnosis, mobile healthcare, research administration, and regional interconnectivity. These solutions will drive healthcare digitalization and help improve efficiency of operations and quality of services.
At the roundtable, Mr. Xia Zun said, "Healthcare digital transformation is entering the deep-water zone. New digital technologies, such as 5G, F5G, AI, IoT, and cloud computing, are combined with medical engineering to support the innovations in healthcare, and speed up its development. Huawei will stay humble, work with customers and partners, who have the expertise and know-how, and step up our strategic investment to help the healthcare industry accelerate digital transformation."
70% of the data used in hospital clinical diagnosis and treatment are images. Huawei's All-Optical Medical Imaging solution, including network, storage, intelligent interaction, and video conferencing, can load thousands of images in seconds and reconstruct the image in 3D with 4K high definition. It offers a fast, stable, and intelligent experience, and significantly improves diagnosis and treatment efficiency.
Pathological diagnosis is considered the gold standard in clinical practice. Based on Huawei OceanStor Pacific distributed storage and lossless compression algorithms for pathological data, Huawei's solution overcomes multiple challenges, such as difficulty to store or query pathological data, and saves 30% storage space. 1000+ slices can be viewed in seconds, which greatly speeds up analysis.
Using 5G, IoT, and Wi-Fi technologies, Huawei created an all-wireless IoT network solution for smart hospital wards, to improve service quality and operational efficiency. The solution can help hospitals reduce network rollout and maintenance costs, and improve patient experience through healthcare IoT applications, such as IV fluids monitoring, baby theft prevention, and personnel location.
Many medical institutions are burdened by high system O&M costs, inefficient services, poor collaboration, and high requirements on medical data storage and security. Huawei's ICT infrastructure solution, featuring active-active DC and converged campus network, can help them build a stable, fast and secure infrastructure, and ensure that business systems can run 24*7 smoothly.
The site shows Huawei's collaboration with Shenzhen Union Hospital in smart hospital campus, smart outpatient care, all-optical medical image viewing, smart surgery and etc. These solutions had crucial impacts on the hospital's digitalization and upgrade.
Huawei is committed to bringing digital to every person, home and organization for a fully connected, intelligent world. Healthcare is one of the key sectors for Huawei's Global Public Sector business. As of now, along with over 2,000 ecosystem partners, Huawei serves more than 2,800 hospitals and medical research institutions in over 90 countries and regions worldwide.
