Vietnam health ministry opens 1,000 facilities that offer telehealth service
Vietnam's Ministry of Health has opened 1,000 telehealth facilities linking 27 upper-tier hospitals to other lower-tier ones.

Vietnam's Ministry of Health has opened 1,000 telehealth facilities connecting 27 upper-tier hospitals with other lower-tier ones, including those in mountainous areas and on islands, via Viettel Telehealth.

The Viettel Telehealth platform was built in almost two months and completed 15 days earlier than planned.

It provides smooth links between central medical centers, local facilities, and citizens.

The system places patients and medical personnel at the core, enabling doctors at grassroots-level hospitals to quickly get access to new technology and allowing integration into other medical platforms.

Military-owned tech group Viettel has cooperated with the health ministry in developing a smart medical ecosystem over the past ten years.

Both sides have to date finished 20 systems that help patients monitor and manage their health.

Some of the systems include a national vaccination information system, a platform connecting medicine providers nationwide, and a national medicine database.

Viettel says it will expand telehealth systems and employ 3D, AI, as well as AR/VR technologies in its medical solutions.

The group will continue accompanying the health ministry to gradually build a tech-based healthcare system, including smart hospitals and medical management platforms, said Le Dang Dung, acting chairman and CEO of Viettel.

“Technology will supply more connectivity so we can build a healthy and prosperous Vietnam,” Dung added.
