On August 10, VNPT Technology handed over a donation to the BK Star Club under Hanoi University of Science and Technology to manufacture 100 smart reminders for doctors and medical workers in Da Nang Hospital.

100 smart reminders will be manufactured to serve medical workers in Da Nang Hospital.

The smart reminders are tasked to remind patients to take their medicines on time. The reminder can record and play back the reminders as needed. Therefore, doctors can record their voice and control the device remotely via wifi.

The product has two modes, namely recording and then saving the instruction to the device or saved via app. or web server. The box is powered by a battery with a capacity of 2,500 mAh and it can be charged. With a compact design (9.5 cm in height, 7.5 cm in width and 4.3 cm in depth), the reminder is like a small box and can be placed at the head of the patient's bed. When it is time to take the medicine, according to the doctor's set-up schedule, the device will automatically generate a reminder. If the patient wants to listen again, they just need to gently shake the box.

In case they do not fully understand the doctor's instructions, the patient can access the web to ask questions.
