Moving beyond historical paper records is challenging.
Imagine the story of Somchai. Somchai was born in Phuket in 1987. He grew up in Phuket until he graduated with a Bachelor of Business Administration from the top university in the region. When he was in University, he had terrible chest pain, and his heart raced like crazy. He went to the hospital in Phuket, where the doctor ran Electrocardiogram (EKG) and Ultrasound tests on him. He was diagnosed with Atrial fibrillation and has been on medication since then. After he graduated, Somchai moved to Bangkok to pursue his dream of working as a growth marketer in one of the most well-known startups in Thailand. His Atrial fibrillation seemed to be under controlled, until now.
Recently, Somchai’s chest began to hurt
and he thinks it might be related to Atrial fibrillation. He went to the hospital in Bangkok, and the doctor suspected the same thing. His doctor wants to see his test records from the hospital in Phuket to confirm; otherwise, it will cost him 20,000 THB to run all the tests again.
