Health Checkup in a Blink

Vietnam | 2024 Samsung Solve for Tomorrow

Point on 'Vietnam' in world map

Routine health checkups at schools in Vietnam have long been cumbersome and time-consuming, causing significant frustration and inefficiency. This challenge reflects a larger issue plaguing Vietnam's healthcare system, which is increasingly overwhelmed due to rapid population growth.

Recognizing the severity of this problem, Dung, Bach, Anh, and Phat took it upon themselves to develop an idea that could alleviate the strain on healthcare services and enhance the efficiency of health checkups. The team developed MedIQ, a smart health monitoring kit for students designed to streamline the health checkup process and integrate seamlessly with existing systems.

From Concept to Creation

MedIQ leverages IoT technology and advanced management software to streamline the checkup process. With real-time data updates and seamless integration with existing health databases, the team’s innovation has revolutionized health screenings, making them faster and more efficient than ever before. Determined to make a meaningful difference, this advancement paves the way for routine health checks at schools in Vietnam to become a reality.

Initially, the team clarified the problem by gathering extensive data on the inefficiencies of the current health checkup process and the broader issue of medical system overload. In the ideation phase, they brainstormed various ideas, ultimately combining a health monitoring kit and a management software system into a cohesive product. The development phase involved refining this idea through multiple iterations, while the implementation phase focused on rigorous testing and feedback integration. This iterative process ensured that MedIQ was both effective and user-friendly.

Mr. Huynh, a Samsung employee as well as a mentor for the project, expressed his enthusiasm: “"It was my pleasure to be a part of SFT for 3 seasons. I was so honored and proud to become a member of each Team that I supported. With Mindful Medical Brand, I was even more impressed with their technical knowledge and excellent soft skills. During the mentoring, not only my students, I also learned a lot to improve myself."

Empowering Students and Shaping Futures

MedIQ is not just a concept for a health monitoring tool; it embodies a vision to empower every Vietnamese citizen to take control of their health and well-being. By promoting a culture of health awareness and encouraging proactive self-care, this idea aspires to build a healthier and more resilient society in Vietnam.

By envisioning a future where individuals can make informed health choices, MedIQ contributes to a concept of a brighter, healthier future for the country. Join us in supporting their vision of making healthcare checkups accessible and convenient for all.
