Best Mobile Innovation for Health

KT for KT Digital Healthcare Solution & Platform “m-Hospital”

The judges said – “A true innovation that democratises healthcare by providing timely, reliable diagnosis using a hub and spoke model, enabling access to quality healthcare even in remote areas.”

While rural community health centers are the nearest medical facility to patients, it is often difficult to provide adequate treatment due to lack of infrastructure. Patients have to visit distant hospitals for regular check-ups and it is difficult to receive early-stage treatment before diseases worsen. KT’s Digital Healthcare Solution is portable diagnostic equipment that enables diagnoses anytime, anywhere and therefore resolves issue of infrastructure imbalance, providing more patients access to quick diagnosis and effective treatment. Further, KT’s digital healthcare platform (“m-hospital”) connects to diverse diagnostic devices and integrates diagnostic data for each patient to enable systematic patient consultation and remote cooperation.
