Under the epidemic, the demand for remote medical services has increased.
Tin Shui Wai Hospital upgraded its 5G network to cover the scope of the endoscopy center and operating room.
After the attending doctor wears 5G smart glasses, the diagnosis and treatment screen can be presented in the form of real-time visual diagnosis, and specialists or senior doctors can be invited to provide immediate advice for complex cases or emergencies regardless of location.
Pok Oi Hospital will also cover the 5G network in the fourth quarter of this year. At that time, it can strengthen inter-hospital cooperation with Tin Shui Wai Hospital. As for Tuen Mun Hospital in the network, it will be added according to the expansion plan.
