The Covid-19 pandemic has been likened to a "bell ring" to wake the world up to the importance of accelerating the digital transformation process in the health sector. AI technology is considered to soon become an indispensable "assistant" of the medical team. With its strengths in data analytics, AI provides rapid analysis, refinement, and diagnostics.
Not out of that trend, after the first phase of cooperation brought remarkable results, helping to reduce 20% of the time to return imaging results to patients, Hue Central Hospital and VinBrain Company have moved to the next phase. The second part of the cooperation process marked by the signing ceremony was held on November 16, 2022 at the Training & Investment Center of Hue Private Hospital (16 Le Loi, Vinh Ninh ward, Hue). The two sides agree to jointly implement the following projects:
Previously, in 2021, Hue Private Hospital implemented VinBrain's "AI virtual assistant" DrAid™ application into daily medical examination and treatment.

DrAid™ screened and quickly identified 71% of images with no abnormalities.
The meaning of the application of AI in healthcare does not stop at providing remote medical examination and treatment services or monitoring medical records online, but it is the detection of small lesions that are difficult to see, minimizing errors. in diagnosis. DrAid™ also provides additional useful reference information such as lesion localization, lesion heat map to help doctors observe more closely and increase accuracy. These are big changes at Hue Private Hospital when moving towards building a smart hospital model.

Since then, it has both contributed to environmental protection, and is the key to clearing the bottlenecks in current medical examination and treatment. DrAid™ owns the largest data set in Vietnam with more than 2.3 million images, is trusted by 2000 doctors in more than 100 hospitals nationwide and is the first AI product for chest X-ray in the Southeast Asia is approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
