“We try and help people do more and better medical care services, by doing less,” says Ted Chang, Chief Technology Officer and Vice President of Quanta Computer.
Ted Chang describes Quanta Computer as a “strange” company. It has around 90,000 employees, yet few people are familiar with it, at least in this part of the world.
“Every third or fourth laptop is either designed or made by Quanta. If you are using an Apple Macbook, you are using a Quanta Computer’s product directly from our factory,” says Ted Chang.
Apart from working with some of the top tech brands, Quanta also works with innovative startups. It helps the company understand the future, he explains and ands add that Quanta itself is a 30-year startup.
“We keep transforming ourselves. The first 10 years we dedicated to the laptop PC, and the second stage was dedicated to virtual services over the cloud. Right now we try and integrate all of our technology as a solution, to solve human centric problems. One of the problems we identify is healthcare.”
In late-April, he and several of his colleagues were in Gothenburg for the city’s annual eHealth event Vitalis, where the company was among the exhibitors and presented its smart hospital and cloud-based tele-home care solutions.
Ted was also the keynote speaker of an investment and partnering seminar organised by Business Region Göteborg, Connect Sverige Region Väst and the European Business Angel Network. His talk was on the digitalisation and the future of the health industry.
