[Kampala, Uganda, March 6 th , 2023] During the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2023,
Huawei held a healthcare media roundtable themed “Accelerate the Digital Journey of
Healthcare, Create New Value Together”. Mr. Xia Zun, President of Huawei Global Public
Sector, introduced Huawei’s four scenario-based solutions for healthcare: Smart Hospital
ICT Infrastructure, All-Optical Medical Imaging, Digital Pathology, and Smart Ward. He
also announced the first smart hospital online showcase site at Huazhong University of
Science and Technology Union Shenzhen Hospital (Shenzhen Union Hospital).
To address the challenges in the healthcare sector, Huawei and its global partners
provide a strong digital infrastructure and end-to-end innovative solutions for various
scenarios, such as clinical diagnosis, mobile healthcare, research administration, and
regional interconnectivity. These solutions will drive healthcare digitalization and help
improve efficiency of operations and quality of services.
At the roundtable, Mr. Xia Zun said, “Healthcare digital transformation is entering the
deep-water zone. New digital technologies, such as 5G, F5G, AI, IoT, and cloud
computing, are combined with medical engineering to support the innovations in
healthcare, and speed up its development. Huawei will stay humble, work with customers
and partners, who have the expertise and know-how, and step up our strategic
investment to help the healthcare industry accelerate digital transformation.” All-Optical Medical Imaging Solution for 3D Image Viewing
70% of the data used in hospital clinical diagnosis and treatment are images. The image
files are large, and may freeze during viewing. 2D images are sometimes insufficient.
Huawei’s All-Optical Medical Imaging solution, including network, storage, intelligent
interaction, and video conferencing, can load thousands of images in seconds, protect
the data throughout its lifecycle, and reconstruct the image in 3D with 4K high definition.
It offers a fast, stable, and intelligent experience, and significantly improves diagnosis
and treatment efficiency.
Digital Pathology Solution to View 1000+ Slices in Seconds
Pathological diagnosis is considered the gold standard in clinical practice. Based on
Huawei OceanStor Pacific distributed storage and lossless compression algorithms for
pathological data, Huawei’s solution overcomes multiple challenges, such as difficulty to
store or query pathological data. It allows full-lifecycle storage and high-quality
management of data, while saving 30% storage space. 1000+ slices can be viewed in
seconds, which greatly speeds up analysis.
Smart Ward Solution for Intelligent and Wireless Ward Management and Services
Using 5G, IoT, and Wi-Fi technologies, Huawei created a “three-in-one” all-wireless IoT
network solution for smart hospital wards, to improve service quality and operational
efficiency. The solution can help hospitals reduce network rollout and maintenance costs,
and improve patient experience through healthcare IoT applications, such as IV fluids
monitoring, asset management, baby theft prevention, and personnel location.
Smart Hospital ICT Infrastructure for Ever-fast, Secure, and Long-lasting Systems
Many medical institutions are burdened by high system O&M costs, inefficient services,
poor collaboration, and high requirements on medical data storage and security.
Huawei’s ICT infrastructure solution, featuring active-active DC and converged campus
network, can help them build a stable, fast and secure infrastructure, and ensure that
business systems can run 24*7 smoothly.
Smart Hospital Online Showcase Site Covering All Scenarios, Open for the First
Time to Customers Outside China
The site shows Huawei’s collaboration with Shenzhen Union Hospital in smart hospital
campus, smart outpatient care, all-optical medical image viewing, smart surgery, smart
DC and multi-tiered connectivity. These solutions had crucial impacts on the hospital’s
digitalization and upgrade. Mr. Deng Qiwen, President of the Hospital, said, “by
cooperating with Huawei, Shenzhen Union Hospital has built a solid ‘cloud-network
foundation’ and an information highway. It is committed to building a smart hospital
system that features ‘one-hour medical treatment’, ‘one-stop services’, and ‘one-time visit
at most’, providing the citizens with high-quality medical services and medical
Huawei is committed to bringing digital to every person, home and organization for a fully
connected, intelligent world. Healthcare is one of the key sectors for Huawei’s Global
Public Sector business. As of now, along with over 2,000 ecosystem partners, Huawei
serves more than 2,800 hospitals and medical research institutions in over 90 countries
and regions worldwide.
