National Hospital bags the Healthcare Asia Awards 2019 for ICT Initiative of the Year

The hospital's e-UDD system optimises patient medication schedule.

In order to deliver medication more safely and precisely to patients, the National Hospital in Indonesia developed the Electronic Unit Daily Dose (e-UDD) system. The innovation aims to make the delivery of medication to patients in the wards more efficient and more safe. For this, National Hospital won the Healthcare Asia Awards 2019 for ICT Initiative of the Year.

The e-UDD system works by making it easier for nurses and pharmacists to prepare and administer medication to patients. Firstly, the system allows the pharmacist to prepare each patient's medication on time by seeing their medication schedule that automatically made when pharmacist processed doctors prescription. It also allows the pharmacist to know if the medication has already been given by the nurse. On the part of the nurse, they scan two barcodes: one on the medication label and one on the patient. If there's a mismatch, the e-UDD system will issue a warning.

The Healthcare Asia Awards 2019 was held on May 23, 2019 at the Conrad Centennial Singapore.

This year's nominations were judged by a panel consisting of Abhay Bangi, Partner, Life Sciences & Healthcare Lead, Ernst & Young; Dr. Loke Wait Chiong Executive Director, Healthcare Sector Leader, Deloitte; Dr. Zubin Daruwalla, Director, SEAC Health Industries Leader, PwC; Chin Chee Choon, Advisory Leader, Nexia TS; and Willy Leow, Partner, Risk Advisory Services, BDO LLP.
