Hanoi, May 18, 2024VinBrain Joint Stock Company and 108 Military Central Hospital have officially signed a strategic partnership agreement to apply information technology and artificial intelligence in management, professional support, and scientific research amid the vigorous digitalization of the healthcare sector as the Ministry of Health Circular 46/2018. The agreement enables both parties to jointly develop smart healthcare solutions that meet the increasing healthcare demands of the population and achieve high efficiency in the management and operation of this top-tier hospital.

Overview of the Signing Ceremony

The collaboration focuses on three focal pillars: (1) Applying artificial intelligence technology (AI) in medical treatment and hospital management; (2) research and development; (3) scientific research. The DrAid™ and chatbot SenMe™ products will serve as the principal platforms in this collaboration. Prior to signing, VinBrain has conducted pilot research and testing of AI solutions in several departments of 108 Military Central Hospital. Initial results demonstrate that VinBrain's AI solutions have achieved exceptional effectiveness.

108 Military Central Hospital (108 Hospital), a leading general hospital, boasts a team of nearly 3,000 experts and medical staff, operating 114 departments, centers, and units. With the capacity to accommodate over 1 million patients annually, 108 Hospital manages thousands of procedures and tasks in healthcare delivery and management. However, given the current situation, with a limited information technology (IT) workforce, insufficient and uncoordinated professional and management processes, and inadequate IT infrastructure, 108 Military Central Hospital urgently needs to embrace IT in general, and Artificial Intelligence (AI) in particular, to enhance its clinical and operational management.

DrAid™, a comprehensive AI platform, offers two key benefits: First, it significantly improves diagnostic imaging processes and effectiveness, enabling doctors to make quicker and more accurate treatment decisions. Second, it processes medical data from various sources, from storage to extraction, analysis, and trend prediction, thereby enhancing operational efficiency.

In addition to DrAid™, VinBrain introduces SenMe™, a 24/7 AI chatbot designed to support users' mental health care. SenMe™ utilizes GenAI technology to facilitate natural language conversations, enabling it to detect early signs of psychological issues, suggest stress-reducing solutions, and provide psychological support.
