From July 14-17, the 2008 APHM International Healthcare Conference and Exhibit was held at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Center. Having as its main theme Patient Safety Future Directions, it was considered the main medical event in Malaysia in 2008. It was promoted by the Association of Private Hospitals of Malaysia.
Even though this exhibition was smaller than HIMSS AsiaPac2008, with only six demonstration stations, ALERTs presence was again well noticed by all visitors. The interest shown by these in relation to the application, as well as the usual surprise given ALERT®s unique user interface, the advantages of being a touchscreen solution and the intuitive icons, were all positively commented on.
ALERTs booth was visited by several personalities, including the CEO of the Penang Adventist Hospital, where ALERT® is being implemented. Members of the Ministry of Health of Malaysia marked their presence at ALERTs booth too.
