Tech giant works with HCMC medical center to install equipment allowing for more tests to be conducted and improving turnaround times.
The Medic Medical Center (MEDIC) in Ho Chi Minh City is maximizing its ability to meet the in-vitro diagnostic testing needs of its patients by integrating powerful pre-analytical systems, including two Siemens ADVIA 1800 Clinical Chemistry Systems and four Immunoassay Systems, into its Siemens Apto Automation Solution.
This enhancement will enable MEDIC to run more than 1,500 tests per hour during peak demand. “The upgraded Aptio Automation at MEDIC will help significantly increase the number of tests performed each day and allow predicted turnaround times, which has never been the case before,” said Siemens Vietnam President and CEO Thai-Lai Pham. “Last but not least, it offers a broader test menu, which is of great benefit to Vietnamese patients.”
In addition, the latest Siemens’ CentraLink™ Data Management System will facilitate a more efficient sample flow, auto-verification, quick access to samples, and proactive quality control at MEDIC
Serving about 2,000 to 3,000 patients, MEDIC was the first healthcare center in Vietnam to install the Siemens AptioTM Automation Solution, in 2013, which was also the first installation in all of ASEAN. Aptio Automation is an adaptable solution that transforms laboratory operations by combining Siemens’ industry-leading workflow expertise with peak performance and intelligent technology. It allows for a phased implementation to accommodate both current and future needs of medium-to very high-volume laboratories.
