KT Corp., Korea’s largest telecommunications company, and Samsung Medical Center (SMC) announced that they have jointly developed an innovative, 5G-powered medical service as an initial step to establishing a 5G smart hospital.

As part of the pilot project, an enterprise-dedicated 5G network at the SMC was built by KT, with service environments created for operating and proton therapy rooms. A test operation was also conducted.

The two partners have been applying 5G on-site to create better medical services since they signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) in September 2019. These services include digital diagnostic pathology, access to proton therapy information, teaching surgery, artificial intelligence-enabled care for in-patients and an autonomous robot for operating rooms.

“If you want to be focused on your practice and not worry about infrastructure, this is it. It’s transparent, just like when I plug something into the wall I’m not worried about what the voltage is and what’s the availability; it’s just there—like AdvancedMD. It does it so well sometimes you don’t appreciate it until you really think about it.”

“We have seen approximately a three-fold improvement on a month-to-month basis of increased collections using AdvancedMD technology as compared to our previous technology provider. That has really been a step-change improvement with respect to the economics of the company.”
