AdvTech_CLPA-Pharmacy-Robot.jpg

Bumrungrad International operates a complete packaging, storage and dispensing system that barcodes unit-dose medications onsite. This state-of-the-art, fully-automated drug management system by Swisslog -- called a 'Pharmacy Robot' -- is the first of its kind in Asia.

The technology reduces medication errors by lowering complexity, avoiding over-reliance on memory, simplifying key process, and increasing efficiency. The system allows highly-trained pharmacists and technicians to spend less time on routine tasks, and more time on patient care. Click to see Video

AdvTech_OrionHealth.jpg
 
Bumrungrad International uses Orion Health HIS, a fully integrated hospital information system that improves all aspects of record keeping, thereby ensuring thorough and accurate documentation and reporting to provide the best of care for patients.

The system includes registration, clinical systems, patient and bed management, laboratory, management and human resource systems. A common database allows departments throughout the hospital to work together and improve both efficiency and quality.

The system was originally developed by Bumrungrad and its subsidiary, Global Care Solutions (GCS). Microsoft bought GCS in 2007 and in early 2012, Orion Health acquired the product and the team members who created it. Bumrungrad is not only a user, but also a strategic partner who works in tandem with Orion Health for the continued development of the HIS.

AdvTech_CLPA-PETct.jpg

Bumrungrad International has installed a Siemens Biograph 64 PET/CT (Positron Emission Tomography / Computed Tomography) scanner, a high resolution medical imaging device used for early cancer detection and improved diagnoses.

The scanner, Siemens’ latest technology and one of the first to be installed in Thailand, provides high resolution images that allow doctors to pinpoint the precise location of abnormalities as small as 3-6 millimeters in size.

The PET/CT provides diagnostic details about the stages of the disease that may be overlooked by other methods such as CT or MRI, while providing a safe and painless examination.

AdvTech_LAB-Auto.jpg

Bumrungrad International has raised patient service and safety to new levels by introducing Thailand’s first modern medical lab automation system. Beckman Coulter’s Lab Automation is the same technology used by many world-class hospitals.

It reduces lab turnaround time, ensures accuracy and safety, and increases work efficiency. This new system also helps physicians diagnose and interpret lab test results accurately and efficiently.

The comprehensive system has outstanding features such as temperature-controlled sample storage, flexibility to add new instrumentation, and guaranteed on-time scheduling of test results.

AdvTech_CLPA-IGRT.jpg

Bumrungrad International became the first hospital in Thailand to offer Image Guided Radiotherapy (IGRT). IGRT is a new technology for radiotherapy treatment of cancer that was first introduced in Europe.

IGRT is the most accurate method for targeting radiation to the cancer tumor. Imaging technology is used to identify the exact location of a tumor prior to treatment, but during the administration of treatment the tumor can move slightly, for example as the patient breathes.

IGRT “locks” the radiation on target, reducing the risk of damaging healthy tissue surrounding the tumor, and allowing more concentrated dosages of radiation to destroy the cancer.

AdvTech_Mamogram.jpg

In our Breast Care Center we combine digital mammography and computer aided detection (CAD) to provide the most accurate screening system available. Digital mammography is a more technologically advanced form of mammography. It is quicker, more comfortable and gives the doctor better images with higher resolution than traditional X-ray based mammography.

The R2 CAD ImageChecker system was originally approved in the United States by the FDA to assist radiologists in minimizing false negative readings in the detection of breast cancer. CAD is used by increasing numbers of radiologists as "a second pair of eyes" when reading a mammogram. The computer does not make the diagnosis, but calls the radiologist’s attention to areas that deserve attention, to make sure they are not missed.

Clinical studies show 6-20% higher cancer detection rates for CAD digital mammography. The system also reduces the incidence of false positives.

AdvTech_PACS.jpg

Bumrungrad International uses the latest picture archiving and communication systems (PACS) to provide the best in digital imaging. No longer will you see an X-Ray film on a wall-mounted light box the way they still do it on television.

PACS enables images such as x-rays and scans to be stored electronically on our network, so that our doctors and radiologists can access an image and compare it with previous images, from anywhere in the hospital. This is particularly useful in an hospital such as Bumrungrad, where doctors representing different specialties often consult one another on complicated cases.

PACS manages not only x-rays, but a wide range of imaging including radiotherapy, CT, MRI, angiography, cardiology, fluoroscopy, ultrasound, dental and mammography.

4D Ultrasound shows\

Ultrasound is the familiar device that allows you to see your baby during pregnancy. In 2D ultrasound, a flat image of the baby is produced. In 3D ultrasound, the technique collects images of our baby and gives them depth for a 3 dimensional effect.

At Bumrungrad International, we use the latest in 4D technology. The ultrasound creates a moving, life-like picture by taking rapid images with the speed of 25 scans per second. The result: Live Action ultrasound images of your baby. 4-D will even allow you to see your baby when it yawns or opens its eyes in the womb.

No wonder 4D ultrasound is so popular with parents-to-be. But it is also a serious diagnostic tool for doctors assessing the health and position of the fetus.

AdvTech_wifi.jpg

Bumrungrad International has introduced Wi-Fi, providing 300 access points to give patients and guests with capable devices internet access from anywhere in the hospital. The Wi-Fi network – one of the largest in Thailand – uses state-of-the-art technology from Motorola to assure both reliability and security.

Wi-Fi users can connect in minutes, the same way they do in most Wi-Fi locations around the world. The network is one of our many investments in technology to help serve our 1.2 million patients each year. The wireless network serves not only patients and visitors, but also doctors and staff. Patients can even rent laptop computers to stay in touch with friends and caregivers back home.

Bumrungrad received the 2008 “Best Wireless Project South East Asia” award from Motorola's Enterprise Mobility Business. The project was the largest single campus indoor wireless project that was deployed by any of Motorola’s customers in 2008. Click to see Video
