Doctors at Xanh Pon Hospital in Hanoi will be able to consult experts from Korea University Anam Hospital in South Korea as per a memorandum of understanding (MoU) signed on Tuesday.

The MoU signing ceremony was attended by representatives from both the Embassy of Vietnam in South Korea and the South Korean Embassy in Vietnam.

Pursuant to the MoU, the two hospitals, along with V-Health Social Enterprise for Health Co. Ltd., will participate in a program allowing patients from Xanh Pon Hospital to access medical consultation services, examinations, and treatment options offered by Korea University Anam Hospital.

The South Korean side will also provide training and research opportunities for medical professionals from Xanh Pon Hospital.

According to director of Xanh Pon Hospital Nguyen Dinh Hung, the Hanoi-based infirmary offers more than 1,000 beds operated by nearly 2,000 employees and receives some 114,000 patients each month.

The telemedicine cooperative agreement will give patients increased access to a variety of examination, diagnosis, and treatment services, Hung said.

Remote health care services in Vietnam have been rapidly developing since the COVID-19 pandemic first hit the country in early 2020, with 1,500 remote examination and treatment points connected to the country’s current telehealth system.

That number is expected to rise to 2,000 in the future.

Currently, Xanh Pon Hospital is the only hospital in Vietnam that regularly connects with an overseas hospital for telemedicine.
