SEOUL -- A national university hospital will establish a remote cooperative medical system in Indonesia, using Information and communications technology, that would enable South Korean doctors to remotely check the results of basic data and provides diagnosis and directions for treatment.

Pusan National University Hospital said that it was selected for a state pilot project sponsored by the Ministry of Health and Welfare and the Korea Health Industry Development Institute. The project also involves private companies including Jaincom, which develops medical information solutions, IRM, a smart healthcare solution provider, and Deep Noid, a medical AI company.

The hospital in the southern port city of Busan said it would build an ICBM-based remote cooperation system with a major hospital in Indonesia. ICBM stores data collected by IoT sensors in the cloud and provides it in the form of mobile device services with big data analysis technology.

The hospital signed an agreement with PERSI, an Indonesian hospital association, in 2018 to carry out the pilot operation of a remote cooperative medical service. Korean medical personnel remotely check the results of blood urine tests, blood pressure, blood sugar and video data collected by local hospitals to provides diagnosis.

The service requires diagnostic kits, a cooperative system, localized mobile services and the establishment of a remote image reading system and an artificial intelligence image diagnosis platform, Pusan National University Hospital said in a statement. The hospital plans to explore overseas markets by creating a business model for medical IT technology.
