我在晚宴上提到的第二件事，是在我們努力研究了一年多的電子藥品平台上。 從構思，準備到開發，一直到現在的完成階段，我們都與Vital Base International Limited合作。本會建立該平台旨在方便醫生於日常執業中搜索藥物的資料和加快獲取藥物的過程。因為這個電子藥品平台可以為各會員提供最新的藥物資訊、同時亦為藥廠提供平台、以將有關產品研究、開發成果、新藥上市、藥物新聞和藥物資料等的信息在線發布給醫生，它可以即時傳播最新的藥物新聞和有關藥物研究最新進展的信息給所有醫生。
Wish you a happy new year!
In the past 6 months, Hong Kong has witnessed numerous city movements territory wide. I intend not to talk about these activities as we have different political stands. However, such widespread movements eventually move into the livelihood of each and every one of us and even into associations like our Union.
I have repeatedly said to our colleagues in various occasions that we should upkeep our momentum to upgrade our medical skills through Union organized CME activities and to keep our friendship by organizing various social and sports activities even in these difficult moments. None the less, some of our activities, like table tennis tournament and some CME activities, are cancelled for safety reasons.
After heated debates in the council and encouragement from the dancing and singing performers, our Annual Dinner at last went ahead and was applauded by all our attending friends on 25th Dec 2019 to be a successful event of the Union. We missed the guests from the mainland and Macau on that night for obvious reasons. Never the less, it is a wonderful job by the chairman of the Annual Dinner, Dr. Kong Yim Fai, with the support of our hardworking secretariat. Many thanks to all of them.
In the dinner, I mentioned that our activities will be held as previously and recently we went to Quangzhou NangFang Hospital to witness the opening of the new Huiqiao Department, which is a building that would house our joint venture Out Patient Service Unit where our colleagues can go there for clinical practice. Details would be announced when the city become more peaceful. You are much welcome to show your interest to our secretariat if you wish to practice your medical skill in the Greater Bay Area. We have gone through hurdles like the License to practice, Medical Indemnity in Greater Bay Area, usage of Hong Kong registered drug, tax matters and even security measures. And we welcome more suggestions to make this project successful in this new year.
The second thing I mentioned in the Dinner is on the e-Pharm platform, a project that we have been working hard for over one year. We have worked with Vital Base International from conception, preparation to development and now going into the completion phase. The platform was built with the aim of facilitating the acquisition and search of drug information in the doctors’ daily practice. As we provide platform for drug delivery plants to post their information on product research, development achievements, new drug launches, drug news and drug resources online to doctors, it allows instant dissemination of up to date drug news and information on recent advances on drug researches to all doctors.
Together with the increasing demand of online CME by doctors, we hope that this IT platform will help the access of CME lectures and materials with CME scores. The platform will also facilitate access of CME calendar and the checking on CME score. Moreover, it is also a platform for more effective communication among HKDU, doctors and pharmaceuticals.
The e-Pharm platform is scheduled to be launched towards the end of first quarter of 2020. Before the launch, we shall invite testers from members and pharmaceuticals for trial sessions. Interested doctors and pharmaceuticals are most welcome to contact us or our secretariat for more information of the platform.
Wish you a Happy New Year of 2020!
