mistakes, predicts and prevents diseases, and empowers people to make better choices.  

Enabled by IBM's technology, the new system includes the Beijing Goodwill's Electronic Cardiogram suite of professional applications and medical devices – such as holter systems, treadmill stress machines and patient monitors – as an all-in-one solution for hospitals.

After evaluating offerings from other IT companies including Oracle and Microsoft, Beijing Goodwill chose IBM analytics and DB2 database software as the technology backbone of the system. The software is compliant with XML standards, the data format of all other ECG systems, and international medical standards. Running on IBM System x server, it is optimized to ensure the flow of patient information for the entire ECG examination process.  

Doctors are now able to retrieve and view patients' current and past cardiogram data, which is stored centrally, as well as medical reports, scientific research and teaching materials online. Additionally, the integrated analytics tools of the system automate the examination and online diagnosis of results in real time, helping physicians increase the speed and accuracy of their diagnosis.  As a result of this high-level of integration, the system helps hospitals to diagnose more effectively, eliminate human errors, reduce cost, increase revenues, optimize resources, and enhance research and educational capabilities.

"Together with IBM, our company is leveraging technology to address the number one disease in China and worldwide," said Mr Xia Jun, President, Beijing Goodwill.
