As part of the VinFuture Sci-tech week 2023 events, on 20 December, 2023, VinBrain, in collaboration with VinFuture, hosted a Panel Discussion on topic "ESG: What impacts can technology make on healthcare accessibility in emerging market", at VinBrain Hanoi Office.
The event was attended by three members of the VinFuture Prize Council including Dr. Xuedong Huang, Prof. Albert Pisano, Prof. Daniel Kammen, along with Prof.Hero of Labor Nguyen Anh Tri M.D., MEDLATEC General Hospital and a team of doctors from the Central Military Hospital 108.
Moderated by Steven Truong, VinBrain‘s Founder and CEO, Assoc. Prof. Bui Van Giang M.D, Vinmec Hospital, began by sharing his experience regarding the challenges in Diagnosis and Treatment.
In the era of Artificial Intelligence (AI), Dr. Giang expressed confidently that this technology would play the role of a "gateway," connecting all isolated and scattered data across departments into one place. This interoperability helps doctors quickly grasp all necessary information to make accurate diagnoses, minimize errors, and unload the complexity of paperwork and medical records.
Building on these insights into the role of AI in healthcare, Dr. Xuedong Huang, CTO at Zoom, former Technical Fellow and CTO of Microsoft Azure AI, and a member of the VinFuture Prize Council, envisioned that in the future, doctors would only need to talk with patients, and AI would accompany them, monitoring and transcribing the entire diagnostic process for doctors (through speech-to-text technology), and even providing specialized warnings. Dr. Huang implied doctors' workload would be much easier with AI.
As a small supplement to the above statement, Prof. Albert Pisano, Dean of the Jacobs School of Engineering at the University of California San Diego, believed that applications based on ChatGPT are a highly effective support for hospitals in training healthcare personnel to have better patient outcomes. In fact, the knowledge generated by AI could be equivalent to one or more courses, and the advantage of technology is its readiness to support training 24/7.
Professor Daniel Kammen, James and Katherine Lau Distinguished Professor of Sustainability at the University of California, Berkeley, also agreed that AI and telemedicine are making training more accessible.
As co-hosts of the event, VinBrain is the only and first AI healthcare company in Vingroup and Vietnam, not only pioneering in providing AI technology solutions for healthcare, but also serving as a ‘powerful catalyst’, gathering leading experts to exchange and address challenges in this important field.
