- NDS Launches Personal Health Coordinator Called "LifeWallet"
LifeWallet was developed as part of the “direct-to-consumer (DTC) testing–based personal health coordinator service” task selected in the “2020 MyData Demonstration Service Support Project” publicly issued in June by the Ministry of Science and ICT and the Korea Data Agency.
It allows users to receive different personalized services and medical data, such as prescriptions, checkup results, diagnostic tests, microbiome tests, genetic tests, and lifelogs, from agencies in possession.
For example, this app provides the users with prescription data through cooperation with Samsung Medical Center and Chungnam National University Hospital, as well as with checkup data used by health examination centers. In addition, it can also link the analysis results of DTC testing services such as Theragen Bio’s genetic analysis and U2Bio’s microbiome tests.
Moreover, the users can benefit from Mediage’s biological age analysis solution when entering their checkup data, along with Kyobo Life Insurance’s customized smart insurance coverage analysis.
In particular, LifeWallet is serviced in the cloud-based authentication system to strengthen the security of personal medical data through blockchain technology.
CEO Kim Joong-won said, “The year of 2021 is the first year of LifeWallet’s personalized medical MyData service. We will constantly cooperate with agencies with medical data to facilitate the collection of personal data and create an ecosystem for the medical MyData through partnerships with relevant organizations and companies, thus contributing to the advancement of the digital health-care industry.”
