IBM launches new healthcare suite for Chinese hospital

The new suite enables the sharing of EMRs across the hospital network

By CBR Staff Writer

IBM has launched a new suite of healthcare information sharing and analytics technologies for the Guang Dong Hospital of Traditional Chinese Medicine in China.

According to IBM, the system, dubbed clinical and health records analytics and sharing (CHAS), is designed to enable the sharing of electronic medical records (EMRs) that incorporates traditional Chinese medicine and modern western medicine data across the hospital network.

By integrating health records that combine eastern and western medicine into one standardized system and applying sophisticated analytics, CHAS can also provide a way for healthcare practitioners to more deeply understand which treatment plans and techniques from each approach work best for specific diseases and medical conditions, IBM said.

Lv Yubo, president, Guang Dong Hospital of Traditional Chinese Medicine, said: Our hospital has a long tradition of excellence, not only in medicine but in clinical research and teaching. We are committed to maintaining our exacting standards, and IBM’s CHAS technology is helping us do just that by moving us away from siloed, antiquated systems in favor of integrated, patient-centric processes.
