Microsoft buys Bangkok based Global Care Solutions

Microsoft announced it will buy Bangkok based Global Care Solutions (GCS), a health care IT solutions company. GCS’s integrated suite of applications for running hospital clinical and administrative operations was developed in collaboration with Bumrungrad International Hospital, a landmark in Asian medical tourism. Bumrungrad has captured quite a bit of attention worldwide for being one of the first hospitals to go to an all digital hospital information, medical record and radiology imaging system. Most hospitals world wide still rely largely on paper records and film for x-rays.

During my last couple of trips to Bumrungrad I personally witnessed the use of the system, called Hospital 2000. The latest was when my wife and I went for our annual health screening. We had all the lab work and chest x-ray completed and then met with the doctor for the consultation. All the results including the x-ray were at her fingertips on her desktop computer. She added a couple of annotations during the discussion (in English). Then she pulled up my wife’s results and discussed her results (in Thai). Following that our final reports were printed and waiting for us at the front desk on our way out. Efficient, impressive.

I’ve added them to my blog roll for future reading. […]

  2. » Patient survey ranks U.S. at bottom of 7 industrialized countries - The Medical Travel Site Says:

    […] Another item in the survey that really sticks out is that once in the system 32% of patients reported suffering a medical mistake. That’s a huge percentage and it may happen because the U.S. ranked last when it came to doctors having access to patients’ medical records at the time of the visit. Now that’s something that’s been beautifully accomplished by Bangkok-based Bumrungrad International Hospital using Bangkok-based Global Care System’s hospital IT solution, which was recently purchased by Microsoft. Thailand leads the world in this area. […]
