    Interview: Dr. Jack Li on China’s grip and how to break free (2020/02/13)

    The coronavirus outbreak has brought renewed attention to how Taiwan is not a member of the World Health Organization, due to China's long-standing objection. But in recent years, even with that objection, Taiwan has been able to achieve small diplomatic breakthroughs. Last summer, a WHO-recognized health organization voted to expel China as a member. It also voted in Taiwanese doctor Jack Li as chairman. FTV sat down with Dr. Li to learn how one health group has remarkably broken free from the grip of Beijing.

    With China’s expanding outbreak, Taiwan’s exclusion from the WHO is once again making headlines, while spurring unprecedented shows of support from the international community. Last year Taiwan already scored a small diplomatic breakthrough in a WHO-recognized organization.

    The man at the center is Taiwan’s Dr. Li, who was elected chairman of the International Medical Informatics Association for the 2021-2023 term. Taiwan was also awarded the right to host the 2023 MedInfo conference in Taipei.

    International Medical Informatics Association promotes medical science and technology exchanges. In 2017, China had repeatedly changed the venue for the association’s annual conference. China also missed payments on its association dues. As a result, the body’s chairman raised a motion to expel China. The motion passed by a majority vote, and Li was voted in as the next chairman.

    There were times when those delegates couldn’t raise their hand and show support for us. But they sympathized with us. And after awhile of this, the day finally came when they decided to raise their hand. That’s when it became our turn on the stage. We are not the only country in the world to face oppression. We need to continue our long-term efforts, to interact and engage with everyone selflessly. Don’t throw up your hands because you are suppressed. Don’t limit yourself to living in Taiwan or other Chinese-speaking regions. I think that would be a pity.

    Li is a former dean of the Taipei Medical University’s College of Medical Science and Technology. He’s also headed the dermatology department at the Taipei Municipal Wanfang Hospital. In Taiwan, he’s a pioneer of artificial intelligence applications in medical informatics.

    This time around, the National Health Insurance Administration has put a lot of effort into epidemic prevention, using its cloud-based system for medication and medical records. There isn’t another country in the world that could match our measures for efficiency. We could turn that into an important industry in the future. For a long time now, people have thought that the health care industry depends on domestic demand. But medical information technology has a global market. We can promote our products in other countries, not only to earn money, but also to deliver health benefits to people all over the world.

    Li says he’ll continue to push Taiwan’s medical AI technology out into the world. His election is proof that slow and steady can win the race and lead to unexpected global breakthroughs.

    突破中國封鎖!李友專獲選國際醫療資訊會主席

    台灣一直希望,能正式參與WHO,但其實早在去年八月,WHO旗下的正式組織「國際醫療資訊協會」,就提名台灣的AI權威李友專出任主席,可以說是,突破中國封鎖。來看看,李友專如何成功出擊。

    武漢肺炎疫情,讓台灣被中國打壓的醫療處境再度躍上台面,更激發前所未有的國際支持聲浪,但其實,早在去年,台灣已經突破中國封鎖,跨出關鍵的一步。

    各國醫學專家排排站,正中間的李友專,當選WHO旗下組織「國際醫療資訊協會」2021到2023年的主席,還成功爭取到,世界醫學資訊研討會在台北舉辦。

    國際醫學資訊協會的宗旨,就是促進醫學科技交流。中國在2017年主辦學會的世界大會,不僅頻頻換地點,還欠繳舉辦費用,讓現任主席提案,以過半票數把中國除名,並選出李友專接任下屆主席。

    “有時候他(其它國家)還是沒有辦法,舉手幫我們贊成,但是他同情我們久了,幾次之後,有一天他手就舉起來了,就變成是換到我們了。我們也不是全世界唯一被打壓的國家,我們需要持續努力長期投入,無私的跟大家做交流跟交換,不要因為好像被打壓我就算了,就只會待在台灣或只能往華文的地方去,我覺得這樣就可惜了。”

    李友專曾任北醫大醫學科技學院院長,也在萬芳醫院擔任皮膚科主任,是台灣少見醫學AI、醫學資訊學權威。

    “這一次防疫,健保也出了很多力量,因為健保有雲端藥歷、雲端病歷,這樣的系統,大概全世界沒有一個國家,有辦法像我們在這種效率下實施。我們將來也可以變成重要的產業,只是我們長期覺得醫療是種內需,醫療是種內需,可是醫療資訊科技是全球市場。最後我們也就可以把產品推到各國去,不但可以賺錢,也可以幫助全世界人民的健康。”

    李友專將繼續耕耘,推動台灣的醫療AI產業,走向國際,用自身經驗,讓台灣人再次看到,秉持不放棄的精神,就有機會在世界發光發熱。
