The history of our hospital runs parallel with the history of ICT (Information & Communication Technology) in Korea.
Our hospital adopted an innovative health information technology system in 2003 from the outset, making it the first paperless, totally digitalized hospital in Korea. The original EMR system, ”Best Care”, developed by an SNUH subsidiary, went through multiple upgrading and improvements at SNUBH over the last 10 or so years. In 2007, we implemented the real-time asset tracking system and a closed loop medication administration system using RFID and barcodes. We were awarded the HIMSS Analytics stage 7 in 2010, the highest category in the class and started to develop the next generation HIS (health information system). The new system, Bestcare 2.0, launched in April, 2013 has been successfully used in daily care of our patients.
