Gyeonggi Province, through the Kwang-Myung City Community Health Center, will provide education resources as part of the project's implementation. Governor of Gyeonggi Province, Kim Moon-Soo, said, "Our region will benefit tremendously from this project. Our citizens will be able to better manage their illnesses and our government will be able to provide health care services more efficiently."
"This collaboration presents a new chronic diseases management model which will help patients manage their chronic diseases by themselves, as well as help the government and companies work with each other," said Dr. Lee Jong-Koo, director of the Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. "The Self Quality Care project benefits both the patient and the public health system and we are grateful for the generous involvement of all the participants."
"In this project, KT plans to link devices such as smartphones, tablet PCs and IPTV devices with medical treatment systems in order to develop a service that will improve the management of chronic diseases and encourage a healthier lifestyle," said Lee Suk-chae, chief executive officer of Korea Telecom. "The project also aims to maximize the effects of treatment and KT will continue to provide the u-Health service to those areas of medical management that need to be improved."
