My­ongji Hospi­tal to es­tab­lish tele­health sys­tem in Korea

BioSpectrum (Asia) - - Regulatory News -

My­ongji Hospi­tal and lead­ing US based tele­health firm InTouch Health have part­nered to test out a tele­health sys­tem in Korea, dubbed the Korean Tele­health pi­lot project. My­ongji Hospi­tal Chair­man Lee Wang-jun and Yu­lun Wang, founder and chair­man, InTouch signed a Me­moran­dum of Agree­ment at InTouch Health head­quar­ters in Santa Bar­bara, Calif., re­cently. Real-time telemedicine re­quires con­stant au­dio and video con­nec­tion that does not dis­con­nect, shake, or pro­duce lags due to time dif­fer­ences. InTouch Health’s core tech­nol­ogy is to con­nect live video and au­dio com­mu­ni­ca­tions to a cloud­based plat­form, re­duc­ing the risk of these prob­lems. My­ongji Hospi­tal will work to im­ple­ment the tech­nol­ogy de­vel­oped by InTouch Health and cre­ate re­mote health­care ecosys­tem by link­ing af­fil­i­ated med­i­cal in­sti­tu­tions and nurs­ing homes, in­clud­ing Jecheon My­ongji Hospi­tal and In­cheon Sarang Long-Term Care Fa­cil­ity. The TeleICU, Tele-Stroke, and Tele-ER sys­tems will be the first to be im­ple­mented.
