Apollo Hospitals’ new insurance claim support platform and more briefs

Apollo Hospitals is now using a new health insurance claim solution by insurance tech provider ClaimBuddy. 

A senior manager of the group shared that ClaimBuddy will help “expedite claim approvals, reduce paperwork, and enhance the overall efficiency of our insurance desk operations.”

The insurtech solution is also being used in more than 250 hospitals across India. 

The National Rehabilitation Center in South Korea is opening up its clinical rehabilitation test bed to help manufacturers of rehabilitation medical devices get their products approved. 

It is said that most local manufacturers of medical devices for rehabilitation are unaware of standards – both local and international – and face difficulties recruiting testers and accessing platforms for usability testing. 

The NRC will provide them with the space, equipment, and manpower to conduct usability testing for software-as-a-medical devices, which is necessary for securing regulatory licenses. These include devices for cognitive therapy, treatment for mental disorders, electromyogram analysis, as well as cardiopulmonary, respiratory and musculoskeletal rehabilitation. 

Pusan National University Hospital is now using three da Vinci surgery equipment from US-based manufacturer Intuitive Surgical, after adding da Vinci SP, which is used for single port surgery. 

This comes as the hospital is expanding its scope of robotic surgery applications, which were initially for cancer surgeries involving the pelvic region such as the kidney and prostate; now it is being applied to surgeries for gastric and colon cancers, the hospital shared in a blog post.

PNUH got its first robotic surgery equipment, the da Vinci SI, in 2013.

The Hong Kong Polytechnic University is collaborating with the Mongolian National University of Medical Sciences (MNUMS) to set up an advanced assistive technology training centre. 

A first for Mongolia, the Assistive Technology Rehabilitation and Education Centre at MNUMS will be equipped with various equipment, including 3D scanning and printing equipment and eye-tracking systems for augmentative and alternative communication. 

Based on a statement, the training centre will help advance the training of local rehabilitation professionals. 

This is the universities’ first project together after signing a memorandum of understanding, which intends to contribute to the Belt and Road Initiative.
