Thammasat University’s EECmd in Pattaya Campus: A Leading Innopolis Campus

The future goal for Thammasat university, Pattaya campus, is to become Thailand’s first Medical Hub and become Smart City, Smart Campus, Smart Sport, and Digital Hospital using AI to perform digital tasks and be an i-Campus @Pattaya. The services to be created includes the smart bus stops, smart trash cans with sensor system, electric vehicles (EV) as public transportation, pure energy from solar roof and float solar cells, and finally, a paperless campus.

EECmd of Thammasat University, Pattaya, is projected to be Thailand’s first medical hub, where the area would offer complete healthcare and medical services. EECmd aims to elevate Thailand’s health services and equip the country for the expansion of its aging population. The development of EECMd ticks all the boxes, receiving attention from investors all around the world. The project attracts even more investors as Thailand has one of the most comprehensive healthcare systems and is among the most successful in controlling the spreading of coronavirus. Thailand is known to have a lot of skilled doctors and medical professions, medical schools training professions to work with researches, and studies in science and technology in connection with the health innovation and health care industry.


Medical Service Hub and Learning Resources Center
Thammasat University Hospital, Pattaya campus, is located in EECmd, Thammasat University, Pattaya Campus”. Our goal is to be a digital hospital and use software such as patient application, Telecare, electronic medical record, Beacon system @ Wifi with queuing system and patient service system. The hospital will adopt IOT (Internet of Things) and medical AI like robotics to give patient service instead of non-skill labors. In the future, we plan to establish a Medical Robot training center to support diploma courses from Chulabhorn International College of Medicine. The overall plan for the Service Hub and Learning Resources Center is to be a center for activities promoting modern medical innovation. The hospital will focus on public benefit and building medical specialists and research for Thai people’s health by proposing two solutions.
Firstly, the “Community Based Healthcare Solution” is to increase the competency of sub district hospitals in terms of disease screening by increasing the competency of digital equipment. There will be an increase of heart wave detecting machines, breath tests, mobile ultrasound for the better potential of treatment and digital health promotion.

Secondly, “Hospital Based Healthcare Solution” is to link all medical information in terms of medical record, basic screening tools, instrumental medical search, investigation units, laboratory information, and radiography information system together to make it more efficient for medical services. This will also effectively improve the HMIS program (Hospital Management Information System) and maximize potential of support work by using Medical logistic (AGV Robot) which can reduce expenses in the longer term.
