Siemens Healthcare Diagnostics organized two workshops on Immunoassays on 16th June 2015 in Hanoi and on 20th June 2015 in Ho Chi Minh City. Taking the theme “Innovations in Immunoassay Diagnostic”, these workshops aimed at providing Vietnamese clinicians with latest innovative healthcare solutions to enhance the workflow efficiency and patient outcomes in laboratory diagnostics.
It was expected that there would be more than 300 bio-chemists, medical technicians and lab managers from various institutions across the country attending this half-day symposium in both cities.
A report by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) of the United States shows that that laboratory services affect 60 to 70% of all critical clinical decisions in which vital information required to accurately diagnose, treat, and monitor patients are expectations of not only patients but also clinicians, lab managers, healthcare leaders.
Siemens understands very well emerging challenges and pressures that Vietnamese laboratories are encountering. These include rising patient number, limited resource and lack of modern equipment whereas there is a fierce demand for faster turn-around time, high quality healthcare service with affordable cost.
Fortunately, Siemens Diagnostic has already had the answers for these challenges. Siemens innovative portfolio of performance-driven solutions covers all the major segments of the in vivo industry including Clinical Chemistry and Immunoassay Testing, Hemostasis, Hematology and Molecular Diagnostic and Point of Care testing, which are combined to streamline workflow and support improved patient outcomes.
And at the event in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City, participants were introduced to ADVIA Centaur® XPT Immunoassay System, which is among the highest-throughput systems available. Siemens united innovative workflow solutions with clinical excellence in the ADVIA Centaur XPT System, leading to greater laboratory productivity and delivering the reliable results that clinicians depend on for accurate diagnoses and better patient care, predictably and consistently.
These workshops also attracted highly respected local speakers from leading institutions such as Cho Ray Hospital, Bach Mai Hospital, National Pediatrics Hospital and National Cardiology Hospital to share their clinical experiences and to present about the innovative diagnosis solution in Graves’ disease as well as early detection of acute myocardial infraction (AMI). Delegates also had the chance to receive updates on the non-invasive testing solutions for liver health, the clinical utility of Vitamin D in children below 6 months, the diagnosis and treatment of sepsis.
“At Siemens Healthcare Diagnostics, innovation is our passion and heritage. Siemens new tests technologies not only enhance operational efficiency but also significantly support clinicians in the diagnosis, treatment, and follow-up of conditions across a wide range of disease states. And these workshops are another clear evidence of Siemens’ strong commitments to capacity building in the healthcare sector of Vietnam”, said President and CEO of Siemens Vietnam Dr. Thai-Lai Pham.
