Plan aims to digitise hospitals

First Womentech Asia (FWTA) announced to private health clinics and hospitals in the capital, Siem Reap and Battambang provinces to register for the Peth Yoeung programme, a digital cloud-based hospital management system, to participate in Cambodia’s Green Smart Hospital Network Project.

In a press release, FWTA co-founder and CEO Pong Limsan said the main reason for having the initiative was to create a network of smart green hospitals to help build green cities in Cambodia.

“We are not only providing solutions to all partner clinics and hospitals capable of providing customers with state-of-the-art digital healthcare and management services, such as patient data retention and secure communication, we also want clinics and hospitals to be partners, to contribute in building and providing solutions for clean and green cities in Cambodia,” she said.

Limsan said she expects that with additional financial support from the US Department of State, the Peth Yoeung programme will be able to expand partnerships and participate in projects to improve daily life in terms of health and urban environment.

“Partnership clinics and hospitals will receive a portion of the budget for the technical training of staff using the Peth Yoeung programme, additional techniques and refresher workshops to strengthen their staff capacity, and certification as members of the Smart Green Hospital Network,” she said.

The US embassy’s Economic Officer Lauren Higgins said the Peth Yoeung programme has also actively contributed to gender empowerment in the field of health technology in Cambodia.

“We are very proud to partner with First Womentech Asia’s Peth Yoeung programme through this financial assistance,” she said.

Higgins said the partnership between the Peth Yoeung programme and the US Department of State to implement the Smart Green Hospital Network project is to provide training and capacity building to more than 1,000 doctors and staffs from 43 partner clinics and hospitals in Phnom Penh and the two provinces.

Another goal is to help hospital employees improve their digital skills so that they can quickly and accurately enter medical records and save patient data for future visits.
