South Korean hospitals are entering a new era in healthcare and could use blockchain technology to improve the quality of their medical care.
The Yonsei Medical Center, whose Vice President Yoon Dong-seop announced that Yonsei is working on an “open innovation platform”, is one of the most renowned hospital groups in the country.
According to Fn News and Hanguk Kyungjae, Yoon said the platform will use blockchain technology, advances in AI and other Industry 4.0 technologies like big data to manage patient records. The new platform will also make it possible to link research projects “organically” by creating a data network of biosensors, digital neural networks, intelligent medical centers, diagnostic devices and research data for new drugs and treatments.
Ms. Yoon added that the initiative would help Yonsei Medical Center “become a digital leader among global medical institutions.”
Despite its name, the medical center actually includes three major general hospitals in Seoul, with a fourth expected to follow in Songdo, Incheon in 2022.
Severance Hospital in the upscale Sincheon neighborhood of Seoul is expected to open the world’s first ward for severe particle cancer in 2022.
A number of South Korean companies have investigated the possibility of using this technology in healthcare. Some of them are already exporting their solutions to hospitals abroad.
