Using various technologies to prevent the epidemic, Taiwan has become one of the few countries that can maintain normal daily operations during the global pandemic of COVID-19. In order to continuously export its anti-epidemic experience to the world, System Integration Promotion Alliance(SIPA) of Industrial Development Bureau, Ministry of Economic Affairs and Philippine Software Industry Association (PSIA) collectively held the "Taiwan-Philippines Expert Online Seminar on Anti-epidemic Application" for the first time on May 27th . Taiwan publicly shared its electronic government infrastructure and the knowledge to use technologies on anti-epidemic purposes so that the Philippines can develop its scientific and technological anti-epidemic system.
Integrated Solutions Build the Smart Medical System.
Technological Epidemic Prevention Makes the Whole World Better
During the anti-epidemic period, units from the production, government, academic, and research fields all tried to make good use of digital, system integration, and other technologies, which illustrated Taiwan's strong epidemic prevention capabilities. Take the airport entry quarantine as an example. The "Smart Epidemic Response System" developed by "International Integrated Systems, Inc. (iisi) " allows passengers to directly scan QR Codes and fill in health declaration forms online so that the immigration clearance procedures could be expedited. At the same time, these data will also be imported into the ``Epidemic Tracking System'' for 14-day home caring and the ``electronic fence system'' for tracking alarms; and "Chunghwa Telecom" executed entry tracking, at site home caring, and home leaving alert with the three principles of high efficiency, high caring, and high accuracy, playing a key role in this national scientific and technological epidemic prevention team.
Additionally, what makes other countries around the world appreciate is Taiwan’s face mask policy. Trying to deploy a system for face mask distribution before the outburst of demand, the government of Taiwan worked with professionals from the private sector to come up with the “Real-name Mask System”. Using the "Face Mask Map" developed by "Tainan Good-ideas Studio", the government made its face mask policy more tangible and practical. This system not only connects to the government's data and information database, including the map indicating health insurance covered pharmacies as well as mask distribution and inventory quantity, etc., but also the systems of multiple units, including government units, telecommunications companies, convenience stores, logistics distribution companies, and enterprises providing online or offline payment services. At the same time, the team building the system continues to race against time to add new features, so that the system can both keep up with the time and value highly about user experience, which can be said to be the O2O system fitting national standard. These technology and epidemic prevention system integrators are the strongest backing in the process of national epidemic prevention.
III International Division: Epidemic Prevention Technologies Once Again Allow the World to See Taiwan’s System Integration Capabilities.
III International Division Director Vivian Huang indicated that in addition to carrying out epidemic prevention work with a sound public health system, Taiwan is also based on strong information and communication capabilities. This epidemic has demonstrated the advantages of Taiwan governing by using digital integration platform, which allows systems controlled by different government agencies to support application development with different requirements through this platform.
Philippine Software Industry Association (PSIA) Chairman Mr. Jonathan De Luzuriaga also pointed out that PSIA has always spared no effort to promote the development of the Philippine software industry and smart technology. PSIA hopes that through "Taiwan-Philippines Expert Online Seminar on Anti-epidemic Application", it can assist the Philippines further in developing anti-epidemic technologies and promote opportunities for future cooperation in international epidemic prevention.
According to a CNN report, Taiwan, Germany, South Korea, and Iceland are listed as the "Four Countries Getting the Pandemic under Control”, and Taiwan has been praised by the Prime Minister of New Zealand, the Prime Minister of Israel, the former Prime Minister of Denmark, and the German Parliament members.
The pandemic of Covid-19 has shown the strong epidemic prevention capabilities of Taiwan, which is more than eligible to work with international countries to overcome the challenges of the pandemic, and it is without question an indispensable member of the world’s joint epidemic prevention team. Not only is the fact that “Taiwan can help“, but also that “Taiwan is helping”.
"Taiwan-Philippines Expert Online Seminar on Anti-epidemic Application" invited distinguished guests to attend, including III International Division Director Vivian Huang, Chunghwa Telecom Technical Manager Jung-Hsuan Chou, International Integrated Systems, Inc. (iisi) Project Director Ai-Ling Tsai, Tainan Good-ideas Studio Engineer Chan-Wei Wu. The seminar attracted more 80 audiences participating. The seminar began with an opening speech given by III International Division. During the meeting, the representatives of three companies shared the internationally concerned scientific and technological epidemic prevention measures, the national health insurance cloud database, and the policies regarding increasing the production of masks. The useful information caused a warm response from both the online and offline guests of the seminar. <
