KT Corp. plans to launch telemedicine platform for chronic diseases management in Vietnam

South Korean telecommunications giant KT Corporation has partnered with HurayPositive Health Technology to develop a telemedicine service for chronic disease management in Vietnam.

According to a press release, the telemedicine platform is scheduled to launch later in the year, offering virtual services for diabetics before gradually offering support for other chronic illnesses, such as high blood pressure. The partners plan to involve local medical institutions in the future to test their telemedicine service.

WHY IS IT IMPORTANT?

The number of people with diabetes in Vietnam has doubled in the last decade, according to the latest data from the Vietnam Diabetes and Endocrinology Association. About 14% of its population, including 5.5% of Vietnamese adults aged 20 to 79, are prediabetic.

KT wanted its telemedicine platform to reach out and support patients with chronic diseases from remote areas of Vietnam.

BIGGER TREND

KT began its breakthrough in the Vietnamese healthcare landscape in April of this year through a partnership with Hanoi Medical University. The organizations have teamed up to offer telemedicine services to patients with chronic diseases and to conduct joint research on medical artificial intelligence.

Using Vietnam as a springboard, the telecommunications company aims to build a regional telemedicine business reaching millions of patients in Southeast Asia.

In other news, KT is also collaborating with the Vietnam National Cancer Hospital to develop a data-based և solution for early diagnosis of AI-based cancer.
