Qualcomm Announces Self Quality Care Project to Benefit Chronic Disease Patients in Korea
Date:4/11/2011

SEOUL, South Korea, April 12, 2011 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Qualcomm Incorporated (NASDAQ: QCOM), as part of its Wireless Reach™ initiative,  Gyeonggi Province, Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (KCDC), and Korea Telecom (KT)  today announced the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding for a project that will benefit patients suffering from chronic disease.  The project called Self Quality Care, which will utilize 3G-enabled applications and services, will provide participating patients and health workers with educational health information and reminders to help manage the chronic disease and live healthier lives.

During this project, data gathered from diabetic patients' glucose measurements will be automatically transmitted to KT's u-Health Platform through a 3G Health Home Gateway (HHG).  The Electronics and Telecommunications Research Institute (ETRI), a non-profit, government-funded research institute focused on developing information technologies, will oversee the implementation and evaluation of the project.  KT will develop the u-Health Platform, which will store, manage and transmit data through the 3G HHG, as well as provide web service solutions and smartphone applications that will enable patients and health workers to better manage diabetes. Ubcare, a Korean software developer and distributor of glucose meters, will provide glucose meters and strips.  Additionally, Ubcare will join KT to create software that will communicate with hospital medical record databases, as well as the u-Health Platform's database, through KT's broadband Internet and mobile broadband services.  

The Self Quality Care project comes at a time when Korea's government is facing challenges relating to the increase in need for resources and costs of providing medical care for a rapidly aging society.
