Huawei supports Asia Pacific hospitals

By

Huawei has thrown its support behind a collaboration with Sydney’s Children’s Hospital, and hospitals throughout the Asia Pacific region, with a trial of its MediaPad tablets given to doctors and paediatric nurses across the region.

The trial is part of an emerging global program, the International Postgraduate Paediatric Certificate (IPPC), which Huawei says has helped vastly improve access to over 100 new participants around the world.

At NSW Parliament House yesterday, Huawei presented a $50,000 donation to the IPPC in its latest contribution to the program which the company has been supporting since 2010.

The trial has seen Huawei MediaPads distributed to a number of doctors and paediatric nurses in the Solomon Islands, Vanuatu, Tonga, Kenya, Bangladesh, Vietnam, Cambodia, Zimbabwe and, soon to Fiji.

Huawei Australia Chairman, John Lord, said participants in the trial had reported that their knowledge, confidence and skills in treating sick children has been significantly enhanced because of their ability to access current best practice without needing to rely on the internet or DVD players.

The Huawei MediaPad tablets have been issued by the IPPC program – known in Australia as the Diploma in Child Health – and awarded in conjunction with the SCHN and the University of Sydney.

The program trains doctors and paediatric nurses working in the region’s most underprivileged areas, often working in remote locations with limited access to reliable power or internet connectivity.

Lord sad the trial had seen MediaPads pre-loaded with the latest medical training materials such as videos of lectures and coursework in the form of PDF files, which could be viewed on the MediaPad regardless of a user’s physical location.

“Huawei lives by the motto of ‘Enriching life through communication’, and this program has shown how technology can actually saves lives in our own region. Huawei congratulates the Sydney Children’s Hospitals Network on their amazing work, and we hope to see more lives saved with this technology over the coming years.”

IPPC Executive Principal, Prof Kathryn Currow, said: “The Diploma of Child Health, known internationally in 15 countries as the International Postgraduate Paediatric Certificate, is a world leader in providing affordable access to an international standard of paediatric training.”

“Huawei has enabled us to expand our reach well beyond Australia’s borders into remote communities that would otherwise struggle to obtain or maintain up-to-date knowledge of best practice care.

“The result of this remote international delivery is invaluable. It is, quite simply, providing education for doctors and nurses that contributes to saving young lives. We are thrilled that Huawei consider our partnership as ground-breaking as we do. Today’s donation will move us a step closer to expanding the availability of high quality, high impact paediatric healthcare to those who need it most.”

At an event in Sydney yesterday, Huawei global Board Director and Australian Board director, Ms Chen Lifang, handed over a new $50,000 donation to the IPPC program. Huawei has contributed $100,000 towards the project since 2010, along with 120 MediaPad tablets. More than 50 tablets have been distributed so far, with the remainder of the devices to be presented to child health experts over the coming year.

NASDAQ OMX and XCentral have worked with the program to compress videos and install content on the MediaPads, with new training materials uploaded to MediaPads via a memory card or over the internet, if a connection is available.
