Unite in concerted efforts to protect lives Lachesis and Beijing YouAn Hospital fight COVID-19 together

The sudden new outbreak of COVID-19 led to a bumpy start in 2020. As a City-level COVID-19 Treatment Designated Hospital in Beijing, Beijing YouAn Hospital, Capital Medical University (hereinafter referred to as "Beijing YouAn Hospital") undertook the arduous task of fighting COVID-19.

The heavy burden to prevent and control COVID-19

Founded in 1956, Beijing YouAn Hospital is a large-scale comprehensive medical center that integrates the prevention, medical treatment, health care, and rehabilitation of patients with infectious diseases, communicable diseases, acute diseases, and chronic diseases. For a long time, Beijing YouAn Hospital has served as a national vanguard in response to public health emergencies in the field of infectious diseases and communicable diseases, and has trained a large number of technical experts in infectious diseases in China.


Emergency expansion to safeguard health

In order to prevent and respond to the further escalation of COVID-19 and avoid the occurrence of "patients waiting for beds", Beijing YouAn Hospital has expanded and reconstructed its wards in emergency. This emergency reconstruction project has received great attention from the leaders of the municipal bureau and the hospital. In order to successfully complete the project and put it into use in time, Beijing YouAn Hospital has put forward the demand for equipment in mobile nurse stations to Lachesis.

After knowing the demand, Lachesis actively coordinated with factories, suppliers and logistics companies to overcome difficulties and deliver the equipment at the fastest speed. In order to transport the equipment to the hospital for installation and use as soon as possible, Xu Hongbin, Regional Sales Manager of Lachesis Beijing, actively contacted the truck driver, personally followed the truck to transport the equipment to the hospital, and ensured that the equipment can be installed immediately upon arrival. During the outbreak, Lachesis has always practiced the rule of "time is life".


The contagious nature of COVID-19 and the increasing number of patients have complicated the nursing work. Lachesis mobile nurse stations can bring medicines and medical consumables to the bedside at once, reduce the frequency of nurses traveling to and from nurse stations and wards, and lower the risk of cross-infection. The stations equipped with an intelligent nursing information system enable nurses to write nursing records in real time at the bedside and view and cite various clinical data. The system also supports one-key transcription and bulk upload of sign data, which saves nurses’ time of manually writing and entering nursing documents and helps nurses reduce the intensity of physical work.


Wise Information Technology of 120 (WIT120) helps fight COVID-19

COVID-19 has brought great challenges to the public health system. In the process of gradually controlling COVID-19, WIT120 is playing an active role. Xu Hongbin, Regional Sales Manager of Lachesis Beijing, has been on the front line since the beginning of the outbreak, and provided on-site support for Peking University People's Hospital, Peking Union Medical College Hospital, Beijing Xiaotangshan Hospital, Beijing YouAn Hospital and other hospitals.


According to Xu, at present, hospitals are strengthening information-based construction in terms of software and hardware. From the perspective of clinical practicality, the products of Lachesis Smart Ward can help hospitals respond to the sudden outbreak from multiple dimensions. Xu believes that this “life and death battle” can motivate the faster development of WIT120 infrastructure and hospital informatization.


In face of COVID-19, numerous medical staff has rushed to the forefront, fought with a hundredfold effort, and invested their perseverance and dedication in exchange for the health and safety of patients. Lachesis is honored to fight side by side with YouAn, defend against COVID-19, and strive to win this battle and make patients safe.
