Episode 3 Synopsis

In this episode of HIMSS APAC Digital Dialogue Series, Dr. Alessi virtually travels to South Korea, famous for its emergency text alerts sent to citizens' mobile devices, but also well on its way to flattening the curve with most businesses opening up again, and little or no active stay home measures enforced.

Dr. Alessi will speak to Dr. Hwang Hee, Chief Information Officer of Seoul National University Bundang Hospital; and Ms. Dong-hee Kim, CEO of Philips Korea to find out just how measures like mass testing, contact tracing and other digital health technologies have played critical roles in tapering the outbreak.
