新辦公室,新里程碑和新計劃

 

在2020年8月29日, 於普及社區檢測計劃的醫療人員培訓後與副會長江炎輝醫生 在香港醫學專科學院大樓內合影

 

 

我很榮幸在香港西醫工會電子藥品平台啟動後的第三天寫這篇會長通訊。香港西醫工會電子藥品平台是本會在資訊科技發展的里程碑之一。 我在2020 年8 月21 日的啟動儀式上說,自90 年代起,西醫工會在會員的幫助及鼓勵下,過去在資訊科技發展中經歷了6 個里程碑。香港西醫工會在資訊科技發展的里程碑如下:-

1. 專注於與會員溝通的香港西醫工會電子會訊;
2. 專注於延續醫學進修教育內容的香港西醫工會網站;
3. 香港西醫工會的臨床實踐管理系統;
4. 香港西醫工會參與醫管局的電子健康紀錄互通系統;
5. 由於2019 冠狀病毒病大流行,自2020 年4 月開始,香港西醫工會推出網止延續醫學進修教育;
6. 香港西醫工會電子藥品平台於2020 年8 月21 日啟動。

處於日新月異的數碼時代,加上全球新型冠狀病毒疫情的籠罩下,更加突顯數碼平台的重要性。香港西醫工會極具前瞻性,在兩年前已經開始籌劃建構一個嶄新的數碼電子醫學和藥物平台。在各大藥廠的支持下,香港西醫工會的電子藥品平台今天終於面世。我必須感謝鄧權恩醫生、鄧偉材醫生及黃品立醫生在該項目中的辛勤工作,以及平台背後的合作夥伴,Vital Base International 技術上的支持。

平台為更有效、更有心和更容易地聯繫香港醫生、醫生會員、藥廠、政府醫護連結西醫工會。而第二階段我們會為大家提供大眾可以瀏覽平台,讓大眾對醫療、藥物、健康和社會醫療政策方面有近距離的接觸。作為大家與西醫工會的橋樑。同樣對藥廠來說這平台是一個在不同專業專科領域上,可以同醫生們直接傳遞訊息和交流機會 。

平台的誕生標誌著香港西醫工會在數碼發展的後盾。進入香港西醫工會電子藥物平台非常簡單,醫生們只需要從現在的西醫工會網頁https://hkdu.org 中,選擇電子藥物網上平台便可。嶄新平台內容豐富,包括有藥物資訊,醫學臨床專輯,活動、延續醫學進修 ( 包括延續醫學進修視頻點播)。通過該平台為每個西醫工會會員提供即時可用的西醫工會電子會員卡,我們會從各方面聯繫爭取給醫生會員更多優惠。作為醫生,登上這個平台便可以有相關連結,獲得一站式醫療藥物資訊,無需花時間到不同網頁瀏覽。

我們期待您的意見和參與,以便本會可以繼續改良和優化,提供一站式的數碼平台,以滿足各會員,醫生和社會的需求,並不時更新醫療信息。

我還在啟動禮上表示,我希望本會下一個資訊科技發展項目的重點放在遠程醫療和用於公私營協作計劃的新平台上。我們將很高興收到各會員對這些議題的意見。

2020 年9 月,政府希望透過普及社區檢測計劃( 普及計劃)盡早識別社區的2019 冠狀病毒病隱性患者。我們鼓勵各會員參與這個有意義的計劃,以保護香港市民的健康。截至目前為止,我們已有100 多名醫生自願透過本會參加普及計劃。我希望我們能就這場抗疫戰中向政府表示本會的支持。我希望所有在普及計劃中提供協助的醫護人員都能一直身體健康。

我們的新辦公室正在進行裝修。很高興逐漸收到會員的捐助。我們希望得到各會員的慷慨捐助,本會對任何金額的捐款將不勝感激。新辦公室將會有更大的空間給會員。請盡快向我們展示您的支持,我相信很快便會收到您們的慷慨捐助。有關新辦公室捐款的詳細信息,請參閱附件本會通訊2163 號,我們很快會在下一次的實體活動中,在新辦公室見面。

謝謝

New office, new milestone and new initiatives

 

I am proud to write this message on day 3 after the launching of HKDU e-pharm platform. It is one of milestones of HKDU IT developments. I spoke in the launching ceremony on 21 August 2020 that with the help and encouragement of our members, HKDU has gone through 6 milestones in the IT initiatives in the past since the 90s. The HKDU IT milestones are as follows:-

1. HKDU Electronic Bulletin Board with emphasis of communication with members;
2. HKDU Homage with emphasis on CME contents;
3. HKDU Clinic Management System for clinic practice;
4. HKDU participation in the HA EHRSS initiatives;
5. HKDU e-CMEs since April 2020 due to COVID-19 Pandemic;
6. HKDU e-pharm platform on 21 August 2020.

The importance of digital platform has been highlighted by the rapidly changing digital world and strengthened with the global new COVID-19 Pandemic. Our Council is very forward-looking and has begun planning to build a new digital electronic medicine and drug platform more than two years ago. And with the support of pharmaceutical industry, the platform comes to life today. I must thank both Drs. Tang Kuen Yan, Tang Wai Choi and Dr. Wong Bun Lap for their hard work in this project, and Vital Base International too for their partnership and technical support.

The purpose of the e-pharm platform is to build up more effective, more open-hearted and easier way to unite HKDU members, Hong Kong doctors, pharmaceutical companies and government health care system. In the second phase of the e-pharm platform, we will provide a platform for the public to have close access to health, drug and health care policies. And as a bridge between everyone and Hong Kong Doctors Union. For pharmaceutical manufacturers, the platform is an opportunity to communicate directly with doctors in different specialty areas.

The birth of the e-pharm platform signifies a backup to the development of the HKDU in the digital platform. Access to the e-pharm platform is very simple, doctors only need to choose e-pharm platform from the current HKDU web page at the link https://hkdu.org. The new platform is rich in content with drug information, medical clinical albums and CME activities (including online CMEs on demand). With the instantly available HKDU e-membership card
through this platform for every HKDU member, we can work with our partners from all aspects of contact to win preferential treatment for you all. As a HKDU member, you can get links on this platform and get one-stop medical information without having to spend time browsing different web pages.

We look forward to your views and participation so that our Union can continue to improve and optimize to provide a one-stop digital platform to meet the needs of the members, doctors and the society and keep medical information updated from time to time.

I also spoke in the launching ceremony that I wish our next IT initiatives would focus on Telemedicine and new PPP platform for public and private collaborations. We shall be most happy to have your views on these topics too.

September 2020 is the month in which the Government wants to catch asymptomatic COVID-19 carriers in town through the Universal Community Testing Programme (UCTP). We encourage your participation in this meaningful project to help protect the health of Hong Kong citizens. Up to now, we have more than 100 doctor volunteers enrolled into the UCTP through us. I wish we can show our support to the Government for a good cause. And I hope all health care workers helping in the UCTP stay healthy for many years to come.

Our new office renovation is underway. Donors are coming in. I am looking for your contribution in one way or the other. After all, our office is always open to our members. There would be more space for members to stay around. Please show us your support as soon as possible, and of course, we would not be surprised to have your generous support soon. For details of donations to the new office, please find attached reminder circular no. 2163 mailed with this Bulletin. See you in the new office in our next physical function soon.

Cheers,

Dr. Yeung Chiu Fat Henry
