Session 1: Keynote Speech

Transforming Patient Experience

Robert Armstrong
Global Lead – Industry Operations & Healthcare Solutions
Global Industry Solutions Group, Motorola Solutions

The healthcare industry is faced with mounting pressures to increase quality of care and expand access to care to a growing population of aging citizens, all while acuity levels and chronic disease rates continue to rise. Patient demand continues to outstrip clinician staffing levels, while requirements for demonstrated results tighten along the critical path from care to cash. Healthcare providers in both single and multi-payer systems struggle with balancing centralized or distributed strategies for decision making and change management associated with deploying new health IT tools. These common trends are global in nature, though unique regulatory and local industry practices are shaping the spectrum of solutions being explored, piloted, and deployed.

Motorola Solutions, together with its community of integration, application, and alliance partners, is focused on delivering solutions that can help healthcare providers across the continuum of care ensure they can deliver high quality care service levels in the face of these challenges. Wireless and mobility tools, combined with clinical and operational software applications optimized to be integrated into natural healthcare workflow, have been demonstrated to enhance Patient Care, improve Operational Efficiency, transform Worker Productivity and augment IT Operations.

During this keynote presentation, healthcare executives from Motorola Solutions will discuss how mobile technologies are helping providers across the continuum of care rise to meet these modern day challenges, and will highlight some of the most innovative solution examples from across the world that are empowering clinicians and operational staff to transform their levels of service.

Session 2: Presentation Speech

The trend of AUTO ID & RFID

Dennis Yu
Founder and Vice President, Ewell Hong Kong

Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) has become a very hot topic in recent years. Through “Smart Tags”, which contain identity information about a product, people are enabled to identify and track assets wirelessly. RFID offers some distinct benefits over Automatic Identification (Auto ID) - for instance, no “line-of-sight” requirement, improved read rates, and less labor required - thus generating significant interest in the marketplace.

While Auto ID, serving a nearly identical purpose as RFID, has been widely accepted in the marketplace. Although it requires a direct line of sight rather than radio waves and requires a specific action to “read” the bar code, it is a mature and proven technology that works well in numerous applications.

In today's healthcare environment, Auto ID is being broadly used for quite some time while RFID has gradually been adopted. The speaker will share with you:

  • What kind of Auto ID & RFID solutions are available to improve overall safety and operational efficiency at healthcare institutions?
  • Which specific areas of a healthcare institution can benefit the most from the technologies?
  • How ancillary facilities come together and move forward?

Language of presentation:
Cantonese, supplemented with English terminologies.

As founder of Ewell Hong Kong Limited, Mr. Dennis Yu maximizes development opportunities and partnerships with the healthcare sector.
