 Korean Government Embraces Telemedicine

The Korea IT Times reported on August 11, 2009 that the Korean government has announced amendments that would allow more people to utilize telemedicine for medical treatments. The Ministry of Health, Welfare and Family Affairs is targeting its telemedicine program at the 4.7 million people who live in places where medical services are not usually offered.

From past studies, the Korean government estimates that about 7.5% of the targeted people will actually participate in the telemedicine program. It hopes that the introduction of the telemedicine amendment will save Koreans more than 61,000 won each year.
