    Teleconferencing System in Hospital Clinic is presented. It is important for engineers to work as a team with surgeons in order to understand their needs and help them to introduce the new technologies, as the teleconference system, in a friendly way. Engineers should encourage them to use it, knowing the multiple advantages that technology can offer.

    In 2011 the University of Cape Town was introduced to DVTS, not only as alternative to video conferencing in general but also as the only ption to use if one wants to transmits high definition images. Despite teething problems and having equipment and connectivity issues, we have been successfull in using DVTS. The only reason this was able to work was the collaboration and assistance from the university's Information Technology & Communication Services, the Faculty IT team as well as from Kyusku>

    Title:Standard Code of Medication in Thailand
    Different codes of medication in each healthcare supply chain from manufacturer to hospital and patient make difficulty in data interoperability and drug traceability leading to increase cost of healthcare and medication errors. Medication errors pose a significant risk to public health and consequently have serious social and economic impacts. These may result in additional treatments, disabilities and even deaths. Thailand Healthcare Cluster, Mahidol University, initiated standard code of medication in Thailand by using standard code of GS1 called Global Trade Item Number (GTIN) and setting up data pool or drugnet. The initial program has been starting with the collaboration of 11 agencies among manufacturer, distributor and hospital.
