Taipei, March 9 (TAITRA) – Taiwan’s disease-prevention efforts were recognized in a recent paper published in the latest issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association, demonstrating the island’s ICT capabilities and proactive response measures to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), which has taken some 3,400 lives as of now.
Taiwan was expected to have the second-highest number of COVID-19 cases due to its geographical and economic proximity to China, but the number of cases in the sub-tropical nation was limited among virus-affected nations, the paper said, contributing the result to big data analytics, new technology and proactive testing.
Leveraging and integrating the national health insurance, immigrations and customs database, the Taiwan government can generate real-time alerts during a clinical visit and keep a close eye on people who had recently traveled to virus-affected countries. The on-line health declaration border pass for faster immigration clearance and proactively seeking out patients with severe respiratory symptoms are among the measures taken to control the spread of the disease.
Taiwan has long been a global ICT powerhouse and been playing a major role in global technology supply chains. It is the integration and joint effort by the public, private and academic sectors that help facilitate and come up with the application programming interfaces that would show data on pharmacy locations and disease-prevention supplies for the convenience and benefit of the people.
All these applications and solutions can only sustain with the combination of ICT talent cultivation as well as infrastructure and firmware integration. Each year, Taiwan Excellence selects outstanding total solutions along with quality innovations ranging from various industries. Visitors are expected to witness and experience the products at the upcoming COMPUTEX Taipei in the country’s capital city from June 2-6.
