Kakao Healthcare “Revealing 3Q of Mobile Blood Sugar Management”
Kakao is expanding its digital Kakao healthcare business. First of all, it plans to introduce a blood sugar management service using smartphones in the third and fourth quarters of this year.
Hwang Hee, CEO of Kakao Healthcare, held a meeting at Kakao Azit in Bundang-gu, Gyeonggi-do on the 2nd and unveiled his business missions and plans to launch services this year.
Kakao Healthcare, which was launched as a separate corporation in March last year, has been pushing for organizational maintenance, business goal setting and segmentation, and business agreements with related agencies over the past year. It is also preparing related services with the goal of providing digital healthcare using big data, the Internet of Things (IoT), artificial intelligence (AI), and mobile technology.
The continuous blood glucose meter collects blood glucose information in real time for up to 15 days with one wear. Users can enter data such as exercise, sleep, meals, stress, body fat, and muscle mass, which are major variables that affect blood sugar, using smart devices such as various wearable devices and scales, and Kakao Healthcare mobile healthcare platforms.
Kakao Healthcare plans to actively cooperate by supporting the sharing and utilization of healthcare data for its partners, medical institutions, research institutes, and companies. It plans to introduce a system that processes large-scale hospital data to the market in the second quarter of this year.
CEO Hwang said, “In the end, the Kakao Healthcare mission is to make people healthier based on technology,” adding, “We will always keep this mission in mind and become a leading healthcare company in Korea through full-fledged services this year and push for entry into the global market in a short time.”
