KK Women's & Children's Hospital
Today’s hospitals are rich and complex socio-technical environments where technology and human actions are closely interwoven and patient’s health outcomes are co-dependent on the success of this interaction. Moreover, it is increasingly recognised that the patient journey takes mostly place outside of the hospital. As medical and nursing care becomes more technology-dependent, many fear that sensors, robotics, digitalisation, machine learning and artificial intelligence will take the humanity out of health care. Do we need to worry? In this session, we explore various pilot projects on how KK Women’s & Children’s Hospital used “high tech” to perform repetitive and redundant activities while enabling nursing and medical staff to focus on “high touch”. Examples of these pilot projects include smart health video consultation, pregnancy chatbots, and real-time notifications for hand hygiene performance.
