KT will enter the Kazakhstan’s’ digital healthcare market based on its information communication technology (ICT). The company plans to aggressively develop the overseas digital healthcare market in the future.

KT announced on September 26 that the company held a ceremony to launch the Kazakhstan-Korea digital healthcare cooperation project at the Aktobe Medical Center in Kazakhstan, together with Pusan National University Hospital (PNUH) and Busan Techno Park.

Previously, KT installed digital healthcare solution devices and provided training programs at 10 hospitals in Almaty, Aktobe and eastern Kazakhstan areas. In addition, the company will start using its digital healthcare solutions to diagnose patients at the hospitals this month.

The company’s digital healthcare solutions are mobile diagnostic solutions that can diagnose cardiovascular diseases, respiratory diseases, diabetes and prostate cancer with a small amount of blood and urine.
