GE Healthcare’s AI aims to streamline hospital management in KoreaBy Lim Jeong-yeo

Medical device developer GE Healthcare on Wednesday introduced an artificial intelligence based hospital operation platform called “Clinical Command Center,”for the first time in Korea.
Clinical Command Center streamlines the use of real-time data for more efficient patient care such as predicting forecasted demand, managing transfers between facilities, supporting efficient care progression, and discharge planning.
The machine-learning AI is being displayed at the K-Hospital Fair 2019 taking place at Coex in Gangnam, Seoul, from Wednesday through Friday.
Clinical Command Center has been launched at seven hospitals in the US, the UK and Canada. It is awaiting commercialization approval from the Korean authorities. Korea University Hospital hopes to be the first Korean medical institute to adopt the system in two to three years.
GE Command Center uses AI and advanced analytics to coordinate patient care and resources across the hospital.
Patients' data is updated in real-time on the Command Center's Wall of Analytics, which can be accessed through a web browser on portable devices or computers. This allows for remote monitoring, significantly cutting down on travel time at a large hospital during medical emergencies.
Park Jong-hoon, president of Korea University Hospital, said the hospital would implement Command Center on a step-by-step basis starting with the emergency room.
Johns Hopkins University, the first hospital to adopt Command Center, has seen dramatically reduced waiting time for patients and more efficient use of capacity, according to Kerrie Hauge, managing director of GE Healthcare.
Hauge, speaking at the company’s press event titled “Beyond Digital Technologies, the Future of Healthcare,” said the GE Healthcare AI system has almost 50 analytics that have different focus areas and are expanding.
The next analytics GE Healthcare should consider developing, as suggested by professor Park, is in the area of medical reimbursement.
GE Healthcare has so far not run into any problems regarding patient data and privacy, Hauge said, adding that the firm has thoroughly studied medical privacy law for each market.
