- NDS Signs MoU for Development of Digital Healthcare Ecosystem
This agreement aims to contribute to the development of the next-generation life health industry and the digital health-care industry based on artificial intelligence (AI) and the Internet of Medical Things (IoMT) and establish the research cooperation system that utilizes “MEDBIZ,” a health-care big data platform.
Each institution agreed to provide active support for areas, including ▲ fostering the digital health-care industry based on AI medical devices, ▲ the development and operation of educational programs to nurture field-specific talents, ▲ the joint utilization of facilities and equipment related to the digital health-care industry of each institution, and ▲ joint support for companies in the fields of IoT and artificial intelligence.
As the government recently began its full review of a regulation-free special zone in the digital health-care sector as part of its “strategy to innovate the service industry,” this agreement is expected to help the digital health-care market kick into a higher gear through the expansion of health-care services and projects to utilize health and medical big data.
NDS has accumulated diverse development experiences and working capabilities by carrying out various public informatization projects in the health and welfare sectors, such as National Health Insurance Corporation and the Health Insurance Review & Assessment Service. In particular, the company has engaged in investment and cooperation programs with U2Bio, a clinical laboratory and medical IT services company, in a bid to enter the digital health-care business since last year, and is jointly implementing the “Seoul Medical Center Smart Hospital Development Pilot Project” using blockchain.
NDS CEO Kim Joong-won said, “Based on NDS’s technology and experience in the health and welfare sectors, we will contribute to promoting the convergence of the medical health-care industry by creating synergies with medical knowledge and medical big data available in each institution.”
