Integration of elderly treatment
Elderly patients often have more underlying diseases, especially elderly patients undergoing surgery, which is considered a “forbidden area.”. To this end, Universal Medical’s hospitals have implemented a multidisciplinary diagnosis and treatment service model, challenging the “forbidden area” of elderly surgery, and continuously improving in aspects such as comprehensive assessment of the elderly, emergency plan preparation, surgical treatment quality and safety assurance, and postoperative nutrition and health management, laying a solid foundation for the treatment of elderly patients.
Specialization of geriatric diseases
Faced with the backdrop of an aging society, hospitals under Universal Medical have established specialized outpatient clinics to assist elderly patients in early prevention, diagnosis, and treatment. For elderly patients with chronic diseases, specialized clinics can provide more targeted treatment than regular clinics. Taking osteoporosis as an example, which increases the risk of falls and fractures in the elderly, China Railway Xi’an Hospital has targeted the establishment of an osteoporosis clinic to address this challenge. In addition, elderly people who have been lying in bed for a long time are facing the threat of diseases such as bedsores. The Wuye Hospital has opened a wound ostomy nursing clinic for elderly people who have been lying in bed for a long time, providing targeted diagnosis, treatment, and care, making bedsores, the “killer” of elderly people in bed, tame.
Accurate management of chronic diseases
Global Medical’s hospitals rely on Internet technology and wearable devices to remotely monitor the health status of elderly people online. Doctors provide targeted medication guidance and lifestyle recommendations based on feedback data and individual differences. Elderly people often suffer from a variety of chronic diseases. For chronic diseases, it is no less important to monitor the condition at any time and give corresponding treatment and guidance than outpatient follow-up. For example, diabetes patients need to adjust diet, exercise programs and therapeutic drugs according to the changes in blood sugar before and after meals. Internet medicine and wearable health monitoring equipment can play an important role in this regard, such as the Taiyi Road Community Health Service Center for intelligent management of hypertension patients, and China Railway Fuyang Hospital for remote diagnosis of diabetes patients.
