Developing an intelligent healthcare solution for hospitals, an all-in-one smart TV system

Powered by Foxconn, the largest electronics manufacturer, our mission is to establish a smart hospital ecosystem. Partnering with US hospitals, researching and developing a Smart TV to fulfill their needs.


We recognize the difficulties faced by every patient. We aim to provide inpatients with a hospital experience that feels like a comforting hotel and home, turning the cold and uninspiring ward into a warm space. We present a total solution to realize this concept: an entertainment TV integrated with an interactive patient room display system.

Role and Collaborations

I handled the UI/UX design proposal, and separate teams worked on the product, hardware, and system integration proposal. Directors offered guidance for the overall direction. I also created a demo video to showcase the concept at events and presented it alongside senior managers to hospital partners during US business trips.
