NATIONAL HEALTHCARE Systems Co (N Health) and SCG Chemicals Co have announced a collaboration in medical-equipment innovation aiming to enhance the healthcare industry with newly invented solutions and advanced versions of existing models.

The first innovation is a “smart” disposal bin for needles and other sharp objects, known in the healthcare industry as a sharps container.
Narongrid Galaputh, chief executive of the non-hospital group at Bangkok Dusit Medical Services and managing director of N Health, said that the newly launched disposal bin, an upgrade from existing solutions in the market, has been developed to meet the need for safe and user-friendly medical supplies. The brand-new model was born from integrated knowledge and creativity in regards to global healthcare standard such as Joint Commission International accreditation from the United States of America and profound understanding of consumer behaviour.”
The smart disposal bin allows medical personnel to dispose of sharp waste in a way that is safe, convenient, environmentally friendly and cost-efficient. Hospitals and clinics can reduce costs due to accidents from detaching and disposing needles, and minimise expenses on new disposal equipment and waste management, as the new model provides larger capacity. Furthermore, it leads to a lower rate of medical-supply imports, more support for domestic sourcing and labour, and a chance for export.
Suracha Udomsakstated, research and development director and head of the technology business group at SCG Chemicals, said the company had used its expertise in design, materials and production for the collaboration with N Health.
