[Medical Center]Hanyang University Hospital Introduced the Mobile Electronic List to Prevent the Spread of COVID-19

Due to the ongoing spread of COVID-19, to increase hospital visitors’ convenience, manage information correctly, and prevent further spread of the virus, the Mobile Electronic List was introduced on June 22, and contactless services are currently being enhanced. Using smartphones to register their entrance, the Mobile Electronic List increases accuracy in managing hospital visitors through easy and accurate self-authentication which prevents fallacies; thus, it is a visitor management system that can assist in preventing the disease from spreading when a person has been confirmed to have contracted it. Hospital visitors need to identify themselves through an NFC tag or by scanning a QR code placed at the entrance and having their temperature checked, as well as reporting any respiratory symptoms or travel abroad to easily confirm entrance registration. After this procedure, the person does not need to go through the self-authentication process and only has to check their symptom status. The personal information and visit history will be deleted automatically after 4 weeks. Moreover, for hospital visitors who do not possess smartphones or have difficulties in filling out the mobile health questionnaires, questionnaire forms will still be available. This allows solving inconveniences when visiting the hospital such as confusion at the entrance and reduced waiting time for entering. Yoon Ho-joo, director of the hospital, said that “the Mobile Electronic List is expected to be a great help in rapidly detecting the movements of an infected person to prevent the spread of COVID-19,” and that “we will do our best to create a safe environment where hospital visitors can get treatment in a safe and reliable environment.” Global News Team Translation by: Park Gyeong-min

The Hanyang University Medical Center traveled for an overseas volunteering activity for four days, on January 14th, in Tây Ninh, Bình Định, Vietnam.This overseas volunteering corps included Professor Kim Yong-ju (Pediatrics and Adolescents) and a total of 14 individuals from doctors, nurses, and administrative support members from the departments of gastroenterology, neurology, pediatrics and adolescents, urology, and family medicine. The volunteering corps received a heartful welcome and response from the local people as they cared for around 1,300 patients from internal medicine, surgery, pediatrics, and dental surgery in the same location in 2016. Professor Choi Ho-sun, the head of the medical center and the vice president of the medical department, said, “This location desperately needs medical support,” and “We will spread the founding principle of 'Love in Deed and Truth' and will do our best to care for the local people’s wounded minds.” Tây Ninh is where the Capital Mechanized Infantry Division of Korea fought during the Vietnam War. As a result, it was difficult for Koreans to come to terms with its historical significance since a number of civilian casualties had occurred. The Hanyang University Medical Center completed their medical volunteering, child education, and the building of new homes to make the location a place of reconciliation and friendship.
