Shuang Ho Hospital addressed the lack of medical resources in Taiwan’s outlying islands and remote areas, where critically injured or ill patients must rely on air emergency medical transfers. In October 2002, the hospital established Taiwan’s air medical emergency review mechanism. Led by TMU Prof. Shin-Han Tsai, this initiative established remote medical video systems for monitoring and treatment of critically ill or injured patients during air transport.

Since 2002, more than 5300 cases have been effectively resolved using air medical emergency resources, and 3978 critical care patients were successfully transported. This lowered the cost of unnecessary air referrals, saving the government 1.4 billion NTD, which has been used to improve other outlying island infrastructure. The national quality award highlights these efforts as a significant social welfare contribution by TMU’s Shuang Ho Hospital. In the future, the hospital will continue to improve the Ministry of Health and Welfare’s remote medical video system in remote areas and outlying islands.
