HẢI PHÒNG — The Children’s Hospital in Hải Phòng City has launched a clinical trial simulation using a robot with the help of Korea’s Children's Hospital, reported online newspaper vietnamplus.vn.

The trial aims to gradually improve robotic application in training, remote diagnosis and medical treatment to improve the efficiency of treatment and patient care.

“The clinical trial simulation will help accelerate hi-tech applications in diagnosis and treatment,” said Dr Bùi Văn Chiến, director of Hải Phòng Children’s Hospital.

“In the near future, doctors in Hải Phòng will be able to discuss directly with their Korean peers about different cases around the clock,” said the director.

Training courses and seminars between the two hospitals will also be organised with the assistance of the robot.

In the future, the use of robots in diagnosis and treatment will be applied in hospitals nationwide, especially in remote, mountainous areas and islands.

Dr Phạm Thu Xanh, director of Hải Phòng's Healthcare Department, said the use of robots was considered the first step of using artificial intelligence in healthcare services. — VNS
